Certified in Dry Needling
Dry needling is a technique that involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into the soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system as a means to promote healing within the body. Dry needling is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by a wide range of musculoskeletal problems.
Treatment techniques are based on concepts of modern medicine, and it is not the same as acupuncture. Dry needling works by trying to create homeostasis within the body and can work by changing the way your body senses pain and by helping the body heal itself. Dry needling can be one part of your overall rehabilitation treatment.
It is not the same as acupuncture, an aspect of traditional Chinese medicine which is based on the metaphysical theory of altering the flow of Qi (or energy) in the body. Dry needling is a western medical technique that is based on scientific studies and knowledge.
