Dry Needling – What Is It?

David Bove, ND, LAc is our very own naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist. He joined the Tensegrity Physical Therapy team to provide dry needling, acupuncture & naturopathic medical services to our patients.

Dry needling is a form of alternative therapy used to help loosen tight muscles that can cause pain. The treatment involves an extremely thin needle being placed through the skin to help stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points. Research shows that dry needling can be a very effective pain reliever, while also helping improve range of motion and speed up the recovery process. Patients can even begin to feel the benefits immediately after their first treatment!
