Dry Needling Thunder Bay

Dry needling is a form of therapy in which thin, flexible needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (muscle knots), tendons, ligaments or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response.

It is helpful in a variety of painful musculoskeletal conditions and its popularity has grown significantly in recent years. Dry needling differs from acupuncture in that it is used primarily to ease muscle pain – it helps to release the muscle knot or trigger point and relieve any muscle pain or spasm.

It has also been shown to improve range of motion and functional use of the muscles and joints affected.

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches
