Have muscle pain or tightness? You might benefit from trigger point dry needling techniques. At Great Moves Physical Therapy, we offer dry needling as a treatment modality to complement our physical therapy services.
Trigger point dry needling is a technique utilizing acupuncture-like needles to release trigger points in your muscle. These trigger points are more commonly referred to as, ‘knots,’ which are tender or painful areas within a muscle.
Research has shown that trigger point dry needling is very effective in reducing pain and increasing range of motion.
Common questions about dry needling:
- Is it painful? A majority of our patients say that dry needling is painless, or that the trigger point was more painful than the procedure.
- How will I know if it works? Dry needling has an immediate effect on your muscle pain and tightness. Our therapist will assess you after each procedure to maximize the effectiveness
- How often is it needed? Most patients are seen 1 to 2 times a week for 3 weeks. Most appointments are a half hour in length
- Does insurance cover dry needling? Dry needling is covered under physical therapy benefits. We will verify your benefits and discuss payment options before treatment to ensure that you are covered.
