What conditions are treated by dry needling?

If you feel there is a tight area that doesn’t go away no matter how much you stretch or massage it, then dry needling might just be your answer.


There are a lot of conditions that can be treated by dry needling. And what it really all stems back to is pain is related to tight muscles. Dry needling treats tight muscles directly to restore the muscle to its normal resting state. The needles used also can penetrate to the deep layers of muscle that we can't easily get to with our hands.


In these cases, dry needling is super effective in treating things like a pulled muscle in the low back or leg, plantar fasciitis, headaches and neck stiffness, rotator cuff issue, tennis elbow, and even tendinitis.


With most injuries and conditions, tight muscles can be the cause or effect of the issue. If you are experiencing tight muscles, stiffness, and decreased motion then dry needling is for you!
