At Frankfort Regional, we provide integrative dry needling, a treatment that helps patients heal quicker and/or reduce pain.
Dry needling uses a very fine (usually 38 gauge), flexible, solid, sterile needle for a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions that may be painful with or without decreased mobility, such as:
- Back pain
- Adhesive capsulitis
- Carpal tunnel
- IT band syndrome
- Chronic pain syndromes
Your therapist inserts a "dry" needle, one without medication or injection, through the skin into areas of the muscle.
Our team strives to make the treatment virtually painless, however, a local twitch response of the muscle may be felt. Many patients experience immediate relief of their symptoms and an increase in range of motion. Soreness or bruising is a common response to needling, but does not occur with all patients.
