Dry Needling (DN) is a very successful medical treatment which uses very thin needles without any medication (a dry needle) to achieve its aim. DN is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems. It is not the same as acupuncture. Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, whereas dry needling is a western medicine technique, which needs to have a medical diagnosis. There is a clear scientific understanding of DN and it does not follow meridian based approaches as acupuncture may do. DN works by changing the way your body senses pain (neurological effects), and by helping the body heal itself. There are additional electrical and chemical changes associated with DN therapy which assist in the healing process. It is important to see dry needling may act as just one part of your overall rehabilitative treatment. Certain patients are not candidates for dry needling such as those who are pregnant, have metal allergies, have vascular diseases, etc. More information and a consent form are available at AthletePlus. If you do not have insurance, please be advised that there is a 50.00 charge for a dry needling procedure. Call Now at 751-8437 for more information or email email@example.com.
Cupping gained more press after Michael Phelps had the round bruises on his back and shoulder in the Olympics. It provides a distraction to the tissue, while all other forms of massage offer compressive forces to the tissue. Cupping therapy offers several advantages including aiding in promoting blood flow and increase blood circulation to muscles and tissue, supplies oxygen to cells, loosens knots, and can release and drain excess fluids and toxins.

I feel that I have gotten stronger and I have learned what me weak areas are. I also think that I have learned some things that I need to avoid.

Very professional, kind people who answered each question I had throughout the program. The program was challenging, yet possible for someone with my injuries to complete. The E-Stim sessions seemed to help, also. I completed the exercises I was directed to do at home each day to strengthen my back.
I am very pleased with my treatment here. Chris, Chad and Buena were very professional and knowledgeable about my injuries and were able to guide me through a process to help my recovery once I have surgery.
