Dry needling uses thin needles to treat pain and range of motion conditions associated with trigger points. A trigger point is a tender knotted area of muscle that can be painful to the touch or may result in referred pain to another area of your body. A needle is placed directly into or near a trigger point facilitating a twitch or contraction of that muscle. Dr. Ben has a certification in Dry Needling through the American Academy of Manipulative Therapy.
Benefits of dry needling include:
•Reduced pain and/or referred pain
•Improved blood flow to the treatment area
•Improved range of motion
