Dry Needling Therapy

Hattiesburg Clinic provides dry needling services to patients in Mississippi.

Dry Needling Therapy Overview

Dry needling is a type of manual therapy performed by licensed physical therapists to provide relief to patients experiencing acute or chronic pain. By inserting a “dry” needle into specific areas of the muscle, physical therapists can target certain tissues they cannot reach with their hands. Dry needling is often part of a larger treatment plan to help patients who are not seeing results with other forms of less-aggressive physical therapy.

How does dry needling work?

Dry needling works by inserting a solid, thin filament needle into the skin and muscle to encourage healing. This type of therapy tells the muscle to return to its normal “resting” position and helps the body produce anti-inflammatory substances that reduce pain and promote the healing process.

Dry Needling Benefits

Dry needling improves movement and decreases overall pain. It offers many benefits, the most prominent being quick relief for patients in chronic pain. Other benefits include decreased muscle tightness and increased blood flow. Dry needling can be used to treat a variety of conditions.
