There are a variety of musculoskeletal problems that can be treated with various methods. Headaches, hip and knee pain, fibromyalgia, tennis and golf elbow, neck and back pain, sciatica, tendinitis and other issues can all be treated by licensed physical therapists. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists offer different methods for treating pain. One of our treatment options is called Dry Needling, and many patients have found the pain relief that they are looking for from this simple technique.
Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues and trigger points that result in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. A trigger point is a hyperirritable point in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule. There are many medical studies that support the effectiveness of dry needling for improving pain control, reducing muscle tension, normalizing biochemical and electrical dysfunction of motor endplates, and facilitating an accelerated return to active rehabilitation. Most people report that they do not feel the insertion of the needle.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we use dry needling as an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin with very few side effects. Sovereign Rehabilitation in Atlanta has talented physical therapists, including specialists in spine disorders, women’s health, vestibular rehabilitation, work-related injuries, and many other painful conditions. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we make life feel better! If you are interested in dry needling to help with your painful symptoms, contact our dry needling specialists or call one of our area locations today.
