Dry Needling (DN), Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) or Intramuscular Manual Therapy (IMT) is used for the treatment of pain and dysfunction, and has been found in the literature to improve pain, disability and function. DN technique is a modern Western medical modality that is not based on Traditional Chinese Medical acupuncture, in that the purpose of DN is not to alter the flow of Qi or energy along traditional Chinese meridians. Dry needling has its own theoretical concepts, terminology, and clinical application.
Dry needling is based on a modern comprehensive understanding of human neuromusculoskeletal anatomy, patho-physiology and on scientific research and pain models. Dry needling in the United States is also known as trigger point needling, functional dry needling, dry needling technique, integrative dry needling, intramuscular stimulation (IMS), or intramuscular manual therapy
Dry Needling is effective for resolving soft tissue dysfunction, such as, inflammation, tendonitis, contractures, trigger points, tissue adhesions, microcirculation, edema, and various other nueromusculoskeletal conditions.
Other Conditions treated by Dry Needling:
1. Athletic and sports-related overuse injuries
2. Post-surgical pain
3. Post-traumatic injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and work related injuries
4. Chronic pain conditions
5. Headaches and whiplash
6. Lower back pain
7. Frozen Shoulder
8. Tennis Elbow
9. Muscle Spasms
11. Sciatic Pain
12. Hip Pain
13. Knee Pain
14. Repetitive Strain Injuries
16. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
17. Many other nueromusculoskeletal conditions . . .
Dry Needling is just one modality used in conjunction with the variety of manual therapy techniques and prescriptive exercises, used by chiropractors to restore you to optimal physical function. DN is only “one” component of a multidimensional treatment approach, geared at creating a successful outcome for you. As a chiropractor we addresses various nueromusculoskeletal conditions such as biomechanical muscle imbalances, postural dysfunctions, muscular flexibility limitations, strength deficits, swollen or stiff joints and many other conditions . . . all of these conditions may require much more than just dry needling.
Cost is dependent on whether we are seeing you as a chiropractic patient and dry needling or if we are seeing you as a dry needling patient only.
