Dry Needling is an additional modality Arlington Physical Therapy provides that can be added to any plan of care.
How it Works
Dry Needling uses small needles and electrotherapy in trigger points (knots) to create contractions in the muscle in order to stimulate healing.
Benefits of Dry Needling:
Release trigger points
Natural pain reliever
Increases blood flow
Speeds up tissue repair
Dry Needling does not hurt but may cause bruising or soreness after treatment.
Dry Needling takes about 15 min per area. You can incorporate Dry Needling into your Plan of Care for quick relief from pain.
Dry Needling is not a form of acupuncture and it can only be preformed by a licensed Physical Therapist.
