We are pleased to announce that beginning May 20, 2013 we will be offering functional dry needling to all of our patients. Dry needling is a relatively new procedure that combines traditional acupuncture approaches with deep tissue, myofascial release, and trigger point release therapies and has been shown to be very beneficial in decreasing healing time, improving muscular extensibility, decreasing musculoskeletal stress, and effectively treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Additionally, functional dry needling is a version of intramuscular massage and is very effective in reversing the negative effects of endurance training. Often, endurance athletes who have had multiple (3-5) traditional deep tissue massage sessions will receive the same benefit from one functional dry needling session.
