Pain Relief Options
Acupuncture and Dry Point Needling
Acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, single-use needles into specific areas of your body to stimulate reactions in the body and initiate healing. Acupuncture may be used to relieve pain and improve circulation. Research has shown that acupuncture or dry needling activates the body's own opioid system in the brain that responds to pain and stimulates nerves that transmit electrical impulses to the spinal cord and brain.
Acupuncture/Dry Needling is a safe and effective treatment option for a variety of conditions such as chronic pain, headaches, neck/back, and joint pain, fibromyalgia, and menstrual cramps.
Dry needling is more invasive and is used as an adjunct to treat musculoskeletal problems and issues associated with chronic nerve pain.
Dry needling involves the insertion of a fine, sterile, single-use needle into a ‘knot’ or ‘trigger point’ within muscle, ligament, or tendon, causing skeletal muscle fiber contraction and spasm. Common problems treated with dry needling include myofascial pain syndrome, headaches, tennis or golfers elbow, soft tissue sporting injuries, and lower back pain.
