Dry Needling Services

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a therapeutic procedure that treats chronic pain by puncturing the skin with thin, stainless steel needles. This procedure is performed by trained physical therapists and is designed to stimulate trigger points or irritable muscles. Dry needling may also help to release tension from knots and pressure points in muscles. 

Benefits of Dry Needling

Dry needling is an effective form of therapy for those who suffer from muscle pain and sports injuries. The procedure is also used to help address certain conditions, including:

  • Neck Pain
  • Shoulder Impingement 
  • Tennis Elbow 
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 
  • Headaches 
  • Knee Pain 
  • Shin Splints 
  • Plantar Fasciitis 
  • Low Back Pain

While the primary aim is to address musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions, dry needling may also help improve flexibility, accelerate recovery, and increase range of motion.

Side Effects of Dry Needling 

Dry needling is considered safe as long as the therapist uses sterile needles. Although side effects are rare, they are often mild and only occur around the injection site. Patients may experience:

  • Mild Bruising
  • Mild Bleeding
  • Temporary Soreness

Dry needling is offered to our patients as a cash-based service. Prices range from $35-45 per session, depending on the level of treatment. Contact Insight Comprehensive Therapy at 810-275-9610 for more information and to schedule an appointment.
