Dry needling uses a small needle to insert into a trigger point in a muscle. It works by targeting the knots in the muscle fibers, which tend to be the source of discomfort or restricted movement. This treatment involves pushing the extremely thin needle into the painful muscle to release the tension and relieve the pain. We have certified therapists who can provide this service alongside other physical therapy services
Aquatic therapy is the practice of performing the exercises of physical therapy in the water. Performing these activities in the water can be beneficial for patients who find the exercises on land hard on their joints. The buoyancy of water supports the patients’ weight, allowing much of the tension that would normally be felt to be relieved.
