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.

it was good. everyone was very nice and helped me a lot with my ankles. thinks guys, I am feeling great!
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.
My experience was very good and my physiotherapist was very informative. I am happy to come back here again after my knee surgery.
Very helpful! It gave me the ability to return to my sport as soon as possible.
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.
It was amazing that I walked in with such pain and weakness that I thought I was going to be on disability and the next step was a wheelchair. After 18 weeks of work with the trainers, I feel that I have a new expectation that I can do anything.
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
I felt that the people and atmosphere were very supportive and helpful. I appreciated the patience and humor of the therapists. I would recommend Athlete Plus looking to get healthy.
My experience here was amazing! I had great service and a speedy recovery thanks to AthletePlus!
I was really pleased with the service at AthletePlus. The staff is professional and helpful. I felt comfortable asking any questions about the therapy and anything related to my injury. I felt at ease getting advice on how to adapt the routines so I could do them at home. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.
