Only been here a few months, wasn't expecting much as I hate meeting new people in this type of environment. However, I was surprisingly impressed. I came in with carpal tunnel syndrome, and shoulder issues, and i hardly feel the carpal tunnel in my wrists anymore.

How does dry needling work?

This treatment method is used by our licensed Beverly, Bridgeport, Lincoln Park, Northwest Side Chicago, Glenview, Evanston, & Oak Lawn physical therapists as a way to relieve pain.

When performing this treatment our physical therapist will insert a sterile needle through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.

While it is a common misconception, dry needling is not acupuncture. It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems.

While there are some similarities, dry needling is strictly based on Western medicine principles and research. It provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal, ultimately reducing pain in the process.

Does it hurt?

Most of our patients report feeling little to no discomfort when undergoing these treatments.

Our highly-trained physical therapists know how to make the process as painless as possible; however, some patients may still experience a “twitch response” with the insertion of the needle.

This is comparable to a quick muscle cramp or ache. The 24-48 hours following treatment may also result in muscle soreness, which should go away on its own.

Sore muscles can be treated at home by applying ice and/or heat packs and drinking plenty of fluids.

So, how will I benefit from dry needling?

There is a large variety of musculoskeletal issues that can be treated with dry needling. When paired with our traditional exercise-based physical therapy treatments and advanced manual therapy techniques, we have found that the vast majority of our patients achieved the pain-free goals they were aiming towards.

After conducting a comprehensive evaluation to assess the nature of your condition, our Beverly, Bridgeport, Lincoln Park, Northwest Side Chicago, Glenview, Evanston, & Oak Lawn physical therapist will let you know if dry needling is the best course of treatment for you.

We have used this treatment to treat several diverse conditions, from chronic pain sufferers to athletes experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness.
