Dr. Ken is dedicated to helping you find relief from muscle pain, tension, and discomfort using this safe and effective technique.
Understanding Dry Needling
Dry needling is a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into trigger points or knots in muscles. Unlike acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, dry needling focuses on targeting specific muscle knots to alleviate pain and improve muscle function.
Conditions Treated with Dry Needling
Dr. Ken specializes in using dry needling to address a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
- Muscle Pain: Dry needling is highly effective in releasing tension and reducing pain in muscles throughout the body.
- Trigger Points: These knots of muscle fibers can be a source of localized pain and referred pain to other areas of the body.
- Chronic Pain: For individuals with chronic pain conditions, dry needling offers a non-invasive option for pain management.
- Repetitive Strain Injuries: Dry needling can provide relief from pain associated with repetitive movements and overuse injuries.
- Postural Issues: Muscle imbalances and postural problems can be addressed through dry needling to improve overall function.
