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.

Very professional and kind people who answered each question I had throughout the Low Back Program
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.
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! Met some new friends and i got to learn so much from just watching you guys work. i’m a visual learner so yeah. i have helped some other people with knee injuries because i learned so much. maybe thats why i kept asking so many questions RODNEY!!!!
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.
Excellent. I’ve been to three other physical therapy facilities over the years, this is by far the best in terms of the specialized equipment and level of custom and personal care. The results I’ve had have far surpassed what I achieved at the other physical therapy facilities. I would highly recommend to anyone! All of you have been wonderful, and I am grateful for the improvement I’ve shown! Office experience has improved dramatically since Alicia joined AtheletePlus. Give everyone bonuses! … Read more
