Dry needling is an effective treatment used to relax myofascial trigger points by inserting a thin needle into the site.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.
We utilize the findings of your evaluation to create an evidence based program consisting of hands-on manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to create long lasting reduction in your pain levels.
