Now Offering Dry Needling

We are pleased to offer Dry Needling as a new treatment modality.

Dry Needling uses sterile, thin filiform needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate trigger points and connective tissues.  A trigger point is a (sometimes painful or tender) point in a tight band of muscle that reflects abnormal nervous system activity.  These points may feel like “knots” in the muscle and can create muscle irritation.  Dry Needling decreases pain and normalizes tissue function, allowing for a quicker recovery from chronic and acute conditions.  Dry Needling is an important tool for diagnosing, treating, and monitoring changes in myofascial trigger points.

One or a number of needles may be used and the procedure may be performed during more than one office visit.  There is little or no pain with this procedure.   Whether this is one part of your treatment or the only reason you come to see Dr. Dover, you will be pleased with the results.
