Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling you ask? While the name of the procedure may sound intimidating, dry needling is safe, minimally discomforting and often an effective technique for patients with certain musculoskeletal presentations. Dry needling is a treatment performed by skilled, trained physical therapists, certified in the procedure. A thin monofilament needle penetrates the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Many people have already experienced the great pain relief and increased mobility that Dry Needling provides. If you are curious if this treatment is for you, you are welcome to contact us here at Homestead Physical Therapy and speak with Dr. Ashworth, DPT to find out what it is and if it’s right for you.
