10 Ways Dry Needling Reduces Pain

“I was down for two weeks with a very bad neck and shoulder pain. I had been to a chiropractor which never really helped. But after one session of physiotherapy with FYZICAL, I felt a lot better. The staff is highly experienced and knowledgeable, I was diagnosed in all aspects and I was treated precisely on the affected muscle group which included ultrasound and dry needling. I highly recommend this place for any sports injuries or any physical recoveries.” – Jesrum S.

Each day, our physical therapists meet with real folks experiencing pain that is impacting the quality of their life. It is our passion and calling to help improve the comfort and quality of the lives of those in our care. We have a passion for scientifically proven techniques.

One treatment that is growing in popularity is Trigger Point Dry Needling. Dry needling is an invasive procedure in which a solid filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. A myofascial trigger point consists of multiple contraction knots, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.

  • Decreased use of pain medications
  • Enable therapists to reach deeper layers of muscles
