  • Get a $70 new issue exam for dry needling for $45 with physical therapist Christy Kohler, DPT the month of October. This offer valid for patients and family members who have not seen Christy for dry needling specifically. Insurance patients are eligible but this promotional exam would be self pay $45 but treatments would be covered subject to deductible and copay of your specific plan. See Christy’s biography on our website. Dry needling is one of our clinic’s tools to provide organic healthcare relief for chronic tendonitis, acute muscle spasms, and headaches. Dry needling is a safe and proven method using acupuncture needles to revascularize tendons and ligaments, relax chronically tight muscle patterns, and cause positive vasomotor changes in chronic headache cases. Since bringing on Christy to our staff in 2014, our clinic utilization of more adverse cortisone injections, migraine medication, and orthopedic surgical consults has dropped dramatically. Schedule “established patient new issue” appointment online with Christy and put “October dry needling special in note field”.

Frequently asked questions about dry needling (TDN) aka trigger point dry needling:

Will TDN Help Me?

Does massage give you great relief, but doesn’t last as long as you would like? People who have good results with massage but are disappointed when the discomfort returns will find TDN a great way to get more long lasting relief. TDN works best for people with overuse injuries, chronic pain, and sports injuries. We are able to treat nearly any muscle in the body and can treat the muscle at depths impossible with other types of bodywork. TDN is a great way to get more out of your massage therapy by allowing us to get rid of the deep knots and restrictions that have, up until now, been unreachable. TDN is not appropriate for people with brand new injuries that are swollen and acutely painful. It is also not always appropriate for people who have excessively loose joints, but an evaluation will help us make that decision.

Does The Needle Hurt?

Because acupuncture needles are very fine and solid, they don’t hurt as they pass through the skin like a hollow injection needle does. The sensations people report are “deep aching”, “pressure”, “releasing”, “blood flow”, or “soreness”. The needle is left in for a very short period of time, just long enough to relax the muscle. The procedure is repeated in different areas until the muscle returns to its normal, relaxed state. Because we treat sensitive areas, there is some discomfort. However, short term discomfort is well worth tolerating considering the long term relief TDN provides.

How Many Needles Will I Need?

We will start very slowly during the first session to give you a feel for the technique. The first session will focus on a few muscles that are key to your problem. These key areas can give you excellent relief with less soreness. Subsequent treatments will target more specific areas to fine-tune the effect. Sessions are usually spaced 5-7 days apart and you should expect to feel a marked difference after only 1-2 sessions.

How Will I Feel After TDN?

You will know positive change has occurred right after the session, because you will be sore in the way that you would feel after too much activity. The muscle will feel fatigued and the soreness can last from a few hours to 1-2 days but should not interfere with your everyday activities. We encourage you to be active during this time to keep the soreness to a minimum. After a day or so, you’ll experience a new feeling of less pain and tightness that will last. The chronic injury you thought was there to stay will actually start to improve. Please call us today to give TDN a try. You won’t believe how good you will feel!
