Dry Needling
For Pain & Performance

Are you a serious athlete? A weekend warrior? An office worker who just can't seem to get through the week without getting a killer headache? Or maybe you're recovering from surgery (or trying to avoid it). 

 

Or maybe you just want to feel younger, healthier and pain free - and let's face it, who doesn't!

If any of this sounds like you, you're in luck!  You may be a good candidate for Dry Needling!

So What Is Dry Needling (and how can it help me)?

Dry Needling is a style of acupuncture that has grown popular in Europe and North America over the last couple of decades.  It is the preferred style used  by many professional athletes! 

 

Unlike most other acupuncture techniques, Dry Needling is based on modern science and knowledge of how muscles and nerves work.  Dry Needling directly targets your muscles to relieve pain and improve function.

I've Heard of Trigger Points.  What are those?

Trigger Points are sensitive spots in tight bands in your muscles.  They cause predictable patterns of referred pain, weakness, limited of range of motion and impaired joint function.  Normally, Trigger Points shouldn't be there.  Injury, stress or overuse of your muscles can cause them to form

So How Does It Work?

Stimulation of a Trigger Point causes a "twitch response."  This "resets" the muscle. The muscle relaxes and starts to work normally again.  By resetting the muscle, Dry Needling relieves tension on tendons, pressure on nerves and - most importantly - reduces pain.  It also releases natural pain killers and improves circulation.

Can It Help Me?

Patients with many conditions may benefit, including those with: headaches; knee, back shoulder or elbow pain; tendonitis/tendonosis; plantar fasciitis; frozen shoulder; whiplash injuries; and many others!

What Patients Are Saying:

"I had two full knee replacements. After the second one was done I was finally distributing my weight on both legs.However I was favoring one leg and my gait was off. This has created pain in my back, hip and thigh for the last six months. I was recommended by a friend to Matt and Josh to try Acupuncture.

 

After my first week Matt was able to relieve the pain in my back. The second week my hip pain was gone and I am walking straight again. The third week my thigh pain is gone.

 

I just completed my fourth session and I feel 100 % better. I am not in the pain, I can actually sleep, and I have increased my physically activity. Thank you Matt.

 

It feels so good to be able to smile again and not be wincing in pain."

"I went to see Matt for the first time on June 1st at the recommendation of a friend. My two complaints were shoulder pain and frequent headaches. I was taking some kind of pain reliever pretty much every day. Now after less than a month I have a significant decrease in pain in the shoulder along with significant improvement in my range of motion. I have had only one headache since I started treatment. That was on day 10 and it was not as intense as the headaches I was getting for the last 4 or 5 years prior to treatment. I feel better today than I have in a long time. I would recommend Matt to anyone who suffers from any kind of chronic pain. It will really improve your quality of life."
