Trigger Point Dry Needling(TPDN):  Ever notice those sore nagging areas in your muscles. Maybe that back muscle spasm that just remains irritable?  TPDN is a medical approach to needling hypertonic areas of muscle to decrease tension, improved bloodflow and promote healing. TPDN should not be confused with Acupuncture as the approach and models are not similar. Those who have had benefits from Acupuncture are encouraged to continue with their practitioner and TPDN should serve as a compliment and not a replacement for Acupuncture.


 

Return to Sport/Activity: Most of the patients that we have the pleasure of treating tend to be involved in some sort of physical activity. Whether it is a low impact activity like yoga or a more demanding activity like Crossfit, we see it all. With that being said our goal is to not only assist in getting  those individuals back to their respective activities, but also to help them come back stronger than ever!
