Trigger Point

Dry Needling


Long standing muscle pain or joint problems can sometimes be related to chronic muscle tightness.

Muscle tightness can result in a host of issues including diminished range of motion, difficulty of movement, a general sense of unease, or even pain.

Tight, sore muscles and joints can stop you from doing the things you’d normally do.

Our process involves inserting a fusiform needle into a tight or sore muscle. The needle then changes the muscle’s physiology so that the muscle is able to relax.
