Dry needling is an exciting new treatment option that involves the insertion of a very thin needle into trigger points or tight muscles surrounding areas of your pain. This results in pain relief and restoration of healthy muscle function.
Ferrell-Whited offers Dry Needling, a treatment which shares some similarities to acupuncture. Dry needling can be highly effective for individuals suffering from chronic muscle soreness or pain. If you’ve tried other treatment approaches without success this may be the right time to try something new.
