Office Workers, Athletes and Pain Sufferers

Dry needling can be applied effectively to various situations. If you sit at a desk to work and have ongoing stress due to posture that leaves you feeling hunched, have had an injury or can’t get rid of your pain, it may be an ideal option for you.

Getting Started

You don’t necessarily have to be under active chiropractic care to receive dry needling treatment (although a number of our active patients also receive dry needling). You will first be evaluated by Dr. Massey to assess your condition and determine whether you are a candidate for the procedure, or if another approach may be better suited to your condition. If accepted, you’ll be oriented to the procedure and made aware of what to expect and how to follow up after your needling session.

Although this treatment is not considered acupuncture, the same needles are used to perform both procedures. Acupuncture needles are thin and flexible and rarely cause pain when inserted. Your session can take from 5-30 minutes depending on a variety of factors, such as how many areas are treated and and how long it takes to achieve the desired response.

The Numerous Healing Benefits of Dry Needling

The health benefits you can experience from dry needling are wide-ranging, such as loosening tight muscles, minimizing pain, improving your function and balance and decreasing tension.
