Gina V Physical Therapy Specializes in Functional Dry Needling
Suffering from a sports injury, work injury or other chronic pain?
Functional Dry Needling brings lasting relief for a broad range of neuromuscular dysfunction.
Following injuries or other degenerative processes, many patients suffer from muscular tightness and spasm. This often leads to compression and, irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. When those nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This natural response from the body attempting to protect itself frequently results in referral pain.
This referral pain can lead to secondary dysfunction such as tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility, chronic pain and a range of other disorders. Dry needling is a highly effective treatment that identifies the source of the pain and advancing a small filament needle into the related muscles, eliciting a twitch response and then relaxing of the muscle.
The identification and stimulation of these trigger points can “reboot” the muscle to alleviate both the original problem area as well as the secondary pain. Many patients experience dramatic pain relief and improved function in just a few treatments, often with lasting relief.
