Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a therapeutic technique in which a trained physical therapist uses a solid monofilament needle to release myofascial trigger points as well as neutralize inflammation along neural pathways.

This technique uses a systemic approach to treat the neurogenic inflammation, which creates the majority of pain and dysfunction in the tissue, as well as treating the direct neuromuscular junction/trigger point.

This technique may provide neuromusculoskeletal pain relief and improve function.

Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative technique in which a physical therapist uses a latex free, wearable and breathable tape.

The treatment purpose is to provide stability and extra support to the muscles and joints without restricting your movement, in order to enhance the natural healing process.

It is also manipulates the soft tissue by lifting the tissue and impacting specific receptors in the somatosensory system.

This may improve pain, circulation, lymphatic drainage and inflammation in order to assist the body in the healing process.
