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 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.
Overall a very positive experience. The staff has been very professional and have provided me with not just therapy, but a method to continue my work outside the center. All the exercises provided have been such that they can be integrated into my normal workout routine. This should allow me to work on any problems on my own in the future. I have been very pleased with the progress I made and with the program.
Great experience. Always felt motivated to work my hardest and knew that the therapists were truly caring about my recovery.
It was a good experience and it really help me during the exercises. I was treated and helpful and I will come back.
“Thank you Chris and the AthletePlus team for all your help in getting my knee back to “normal”. I can use it again with ease and no pain”
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
I was a good experience at learning new abilities. It made me a lot stronger and I fell like it made a better athlete. In basketball a lot. I thought I was a lot of help for me.
The past couple of months I had been feeling a lot of pain in my rib area. When I started coming here, my pain almost went away with only two sessions. My experience here has been wonderful! The people working here are so nice and I cannot thank y’all enough.
I feel 100% better than when I arrived. Great Staff , Good program , Thanks for getting me back on track.
My experience here was amazing! I had great service and a speedy recovery thanks to AthletePlus!
