Dry needling can jumpstart the healing and rehabilitation process.
Dry needling is one of the many specialized treatment techniques we offer at Mooresville Sports & Physical Therapy to help our patients. This procedure involves inserting a solid filament needle into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. The needle may be manipulated at this point to produce a local twitch response, which results in muscle relaxation. No medication of any kind is injected, making dry needling a holistic solution for bringing relief to a wide range of symptoms.
Dry needling retrains muscles to work with a new and pain-free range of motion, making it a great option for treating:
- Neck and back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Myofascial pain
- Chronic pain
- Sprains and strains
- Movement disorders
- Sports injuries
- Orofacial pain
- Many other conditions
We often recommend dry needling when our patient is struggling to return to active rehabilitation and needs to jumpstart the therapy process. Our highly trained physical therapists are knowledgeable and effectively experienced to administer dry needling procedures, and we will make sure you feel confident about the process well before your appointment. Often, dry needling is used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan in conjunction with other physical or sports therapy techniques to promote healing, pain relief, and optimal physical function.
