Dry needling is like hitting the reset button for your muscles. It's a targeted physical therapy technique designed to tackle those stubborn knots in your muscles – also known as trigger points – that can cause pain, stiffness, and restricted movements. During a dry needling session, very thin needles are gently inserted into these trigger points, which are often the culprits behind your discomfort. This precise insertion of needles prompts your muscles to relax and release, encouraging increased blood flow and the body's natural healing processes to kick in.

When Would I Need Dry Needling?

You might find yourself considering dry needling when you're grappling with persistent muscle discomfort that just won't quit. If you're dealing with stubborn knots, trigger points, or muscle tightness that's affecting your daily activities dry needling could be a game-changer for you. Whether it's due to sports-related strains, repetitive movements, or even just the wear and tear of everyday life, this technique can offer relief by targeting those specific areas of tension and help your muscles find their way back to a more relaxed and pain-free state.

Sean is a fantastic PT. He treated me for chronic navicular tendinopathy, which was very painful for me for the last six months. This was from a long-term cycling injury. He gave me a great exercise plan and treated me with dry needling. The dry needling helped loosen up my tendon, and I am pain-free now and have returned to all activities.
