Dry Needling in Newport News, VA

Dry needling is not the same as acupuncture, although hair thin needles are used in both types of treatment. Dry needling is used when you have a painful trigger point in the body. Trigger points are a tight band of muscle that is constricted, and the blood flow has been diminished to the area. Dry needling can reach areas of soft tissue that a practitioner is not able to reach by hand. It is common to receive dry needling as part of your overall care when you see a chiropractor for pain.

 Chiropractic Treatment Modalities Used in Therapy

Spinal adjustments are a commonly used therapy when you work with a chiropractor in Newport News, VA. You may also receive massage therapy, electric muscle stimulation, or ultrasound to help ease pain and increase circulation in tight muscles.

The treatment is not painful, and it is likely that you will find relief within a session or two.
