Dry Needling is a technique in which fine needles are inserted into a tight band or “knot” in a muscle. The needle is gently positioned in and out of the muscle. The effect is that of increased blood flow throughout this area of muscle and release tension and pain. Yo may also see an immediate increase in mobility and function.

Who is a good candidate for dry needling?
Anyone who is experiencing:

  • general muscular tightness
  • pain
  • decreased range of motion
  • headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Postural deflects
How often will I need dry needling?
Often dry needling is effective in reducing your pain in 2-3 sessions. These sessions would be done once a week. You will often be given a few stretches and exercises to be done at home so that you can maintain the gains offered by the dry needling technique. If your situation is more complicated and multiple muscle groups are involved, then more sessions will likely be required.

Muscle Activation Techniques, or MAT, is a manual therapy that works well for people who have pain, discomfort and/or stiffness, especially when associated with repetitive strain or compensations from old injuries.

MAT practitioners are able to assess an individual client's neuromuscular function by performing a series of mobility tests and then correlating the limitations in range of motion (ROM) with muscle tests that can identify which specific muscles are not contracting efficiently. Once a muscle weakness is identified, MAT practitioners are trained to precisely "activate" each muscle through either isometric contractions or specific force application to the origin and insertion points of the affected muscle(s).
