What is Dry Needling?

The practice of dry needling involves using a thin monofilament needle to penetrate dysfunctional tissue in order to reduce pain, increase range of motion and promote healing. 

What conditions can be addressed with dry needling?

Dry needling is a modality used by physicians and physical therapists for a variety of conditions including (but not limited to): 

  • Trauma

  • Headaches

  • Overuse Injuries

  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome

  • Low Back Pain

  • Neck Pain

  • Osteoarthritic Conditions

  • Scar Tissue

  • Muscle Strains

  • Ligament Sprains

How is dry needling different from acupuncture?

First and foremost, dry needling is not acupuncture. While there are similarities, they are based on different theories, have different training and require different licensure. Dry needling focuses on the musculoskeletal system, specifically trigger points, and is based on Western medicine. Acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine and focuses on improving/correcting the energy in the body for a wider variety of conditions. 

Is dry needling covered by insurance?

Dry needling is not covered by most insurances. If your insurance does not cover it there is an additional of $25 for every 15 minutes.
