To remain on the forefront of the physical and occupational industry, it’s imperative that we explore every treatment available for our patients.
This is why some of CORA’s clinics offer dry needling.
Dry needling is an innovative technique designed to treat and alleviate myofascial pain. And while it uses very thin acupuncture needles, it is not acupuncture. In dry needling, the needles are inserted directly into the trigger points in the muscle. This stimulates a healing response within the body: circulation is increased, oxygen delivery is improved and key neural transmitters are blocked.
Dry needling helps our patients release tension, which boosts their bodies’ natural ability to heal and helps pain subside. For those suffering from tendinitis, tendinosis, tension headaches, neck pain, back pain and many other musculoskeletal concerns, dry needling is the exploration that works.
