Dry Needling is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. The doctor uses needles placed along the specific pain sites that run throughout the body. Today, doctors of chiropractic also use lasers, magnets and electric pulses in addition to needles. Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, the doctor is able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient.
Dry Needling is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
The chiropractic physician takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
