There is often some confusion about Dry Needling vs. Acupuncture so we want to provide you with a little information to help destinguish between the two. All of our chiropractors are trained in Dry Needling and offer it as a service to our clients.
Dry Needling follows evidence based guidelines; the goal is to address neuromuscular conditions, relieve pain, and/or improve range of motion. Practitioners place needles in trigger points in your muscle or tissue. It is often used to treat sports injuries, muscle pain, and fibromyalgia pain.
Acupuncture is rooted in Tradtional Chinese medicine, with the fundamental belief that illness is the result of blocked or interrupted Chi along traditional chinese meridians. Acupuncture seeks to remove blockages and return your energy flow to a state of balance, alleviating pain or helping to treat various health conditions with light needling that is skin level.
