What is Dry Needling and How Can It Help Me?

Dry Needling is a therapy technique that relieves muscle pain by using a thin monofilament needle to relax the muscle.

Dry Needling helps:

  • resolve pain
  • decrease muscle tension
  • improve flexibility
  • promote healing.

If you experience muscle pain not relieved by other physical therapy techniques, then Dry Needling could be a good option.

We determine whether or not Dry Needling will benefit you through a traditional evaluation that looks at range of motion, strength, flexibility, muscle tension and movement patterns.

How long has Dry Needling been around?

Formal research by Dr. Janet Travell, MD, in the 1940s supported Dry Needling therapy for use in trigger points and for muscle dysfunction. It is licensed state by state and has been available in Colorado as a part of the physical therapy practice since 2005.
