What Is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a specific technique used to treat trigger point pain and myofascial (muscle pain). Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling are orthopedic acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, and intramusclular manual therapy.
We are the only provider in Linwood, New Jersey and the surrounding area with over two decades of experience who has a sports medicine background AND who has extensive training in both Dry Needling and Orthopedic Acupuncture.
Is Dry Needling Right For You?
Dry Needling is NOT for everyone.
Your diagnosis or symptoms alone are not always an indication that Dry Needling will be effective or even the correct treatment option for you. We pride ourselves on only accepting people we believe can strongly benefit from our treatment protocols.
Medical history, duration of symptoms, severity of symptoms, loss of function, and other factors have to be evaluated first before any decision can be made to accept you into our care.
An initial consultation is required to find out if Dry Needling would even be an appropriate treatment option for you. This simply can not be determined over the phone, you need to be evaluated.

Before acupuncture I couldn’t play basketball if I wanted to everyday due to my low back pain. As I progressed through the treatments, the pain gradually decreased.
