Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is a physical therapy treatment technique that utilizes filament needles to make changes in myofascial trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are “knots” in muscles that can contribute to pain and decreased muscle function. TDN is an effective tool in the hand of a qualified physical therapist managing soft tissue injuries, disorders and pain. Our skilled clinicians can use TDN for many conditions including but not limited to: rotator cuff tendonitis, golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, SI joint pain, chronic headaches, neck and low back pain.
