Our goal is to heal your injury or chronic condition and we have a variety of techniques at our disposal to help us achieve that goal. We will also refer you to other specialists if we feel that is appropriate.
Dry needling is a technique that all our Chiropractors can use if they feel necessary. It involves introducing fine, sterile acupuncture needles into trigger points or big knots in the muscle.
Dry needling directly treats the neuromuscular system affecting muscle tightness and symptoms of pain and irritation.
Our Chiropractors may also utilize another technique along with your adjustments called Cupping. This technique has been used for many years and involves placing cups on the area of pain/discomfort to create suction. People will get this for a number of reasons including:
