Dry Needling at Advantage!
MIKE SAVAGEAU PT/CEO/Owner
What is Dry Needling? Dry Needling involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle or muscles in order to release shortened bands of muscles and decrease trigger point activity. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension, and will promote healing. This is a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective. Who can benefit? Dry Needling is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Patients with the following symptoms may benefit from this treatment: • Muscle Strains • Tendonitis • Osteoarthritis • Bursitis • Decrease Mobility/Range of Motion • Headaches • Chronic Pain
What to expect from treatment? For most people, there is little to no discomfort with the insertion of the needle. Our physical therapist strive to make the treatment virtually painless, however, at times, you may experience a “twitch response” which often feels like a quick muscle cramp or ache. These sensations are normal and even desirable at times. Following this technique muscle soreness can be felt up to 24-48 hours. The application of heat or ice and drinking plenty of fluids usually reduces the soreness. Dry Needling is a powerful treatment technique that when used in with conjunction with our other physical therapy treatments, can help you relieve your pain and improve your function quickly.
