Expert Dry Needling in Sioux Falls

Relieve Pain & Restore Mobility

What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a treatment approach centered around the stimulation of underlying muscle trigger points with a single-filament needle, which can cause a twitch or a rapid contraction of the targeted underlying muscle fibers. This action significantly diminishes muscle hyperactivity, leading to muscle relaxation and a reduction in pain. Additionally, dry needling can trigger the body's natural production of pain-relieving opiates, thereby kickstarting a healing process. This process helps to stimulate a healing response and supports the recovery of functional abilities.

Dry needling therapy in the realm of physical therapy is suitable for a diverse range of individuals and is appropriate for managing acute, subacute, and chronic pain, as well as various physical dysfunctions.

This treatment approach in generally not performed in isolation but rather forms a component of an integrated strategy aimed at assisting in pain management, rejuvenating movement, and reinstating functionality. Only trained and proficient physical therapists certified in dry needling, like Dr. Eric Brown, PT, DPT, OCS, are allowed to carry out this procedure to ensure the safety and comfort of all patients.
