Dry needling is an invasive procedure in which a solid filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. A myofascial trigger point consists of multiple contraction knots, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle. Dry needling is used as part of a comprehensive and specialized treatment plan unique to you.
Dry needling can be used for a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Muscles are thought to be a primary contributing factor to the symptoms. Such conditions include, but are not limited to neck, back and shoulder pain, arm pain (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, golfer’s elbow), headache to include migraines and tension type headaches, jaw pain, buttock pain and leg pain (sciatica, hamstrings strains, calf tightness/spasms). The treatment of muscles has the greatest effect on reducing pain mechanisms in the nervous system.
Schedule an appointment to see if dry needling is right for you!
This was a wonderful experience from my first phone call to schedule an appointment. Sherry at the front desk is always cheery and a welcoming face. The team of therapists and other staff were always professional while also being fun loving, turning a potentially unpleasant/painful appointment into one filled with laughs. Dr. Koch was very knowledgable about how to help me and went above and beyond to understand and address my specific lifestyle goals beyond just pain-free daily living. I felt like I was in good hands throughout the entire process and have been telling friends and coworkers about this practice because I had such a great experience. Keep up the great work and let Liz choose the music. :)
