Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment strategy utilized by a physical therapist with a post-graduate certification using thin monofilament needles to treat dysfunctional tissue.

Dry needling involves inserting a thin needle through the skin and into underlying muscle and connective tissues. This technique creates a release, or deactivation, of underlying myofascial trigger points which are known to cause pain and tenderness.

At Athletic Movements dry needling is included in every individualized treatment plan with no additional cost. If muscle pain is limiting your ability to achieve optimal performance, consult with Dr. Zerah about implementing dry needling into your treatment plan.
