Dry Needling has become a very popular and widely used technique in the recovery from pain, both acute and chronic. We have seen first-hand how extremely effective its benefits are and its profound effect on functional recovery. We are proud at Active Physical Therapy to have made a tremendous push into this technique and all its benefits by having a majority of our offices now feature at least one dry needling certified clinician. In practice, dry needling is focused on the theory that trigger point pain deep in our muscular tissue and fascia are very much a common source of musculoskeletal and joint pain. By breaking up these trigger point segments internally, an almost relaxing effect deep in the muscular tissue can occur to promote a calming effect to inflamed and bruised tissue. Common cases that have greatly benefited from dry needling can range anywhere from general neck and low back pain to more localized dysfunctions like frozen shoulder, rotator cuff strain, hip pain, IT Band Syndrome, Knee pain (osteoarthritis), Achilles tendinopathy, ankle sprains, and so much more.
