Dry needling

Dry Needling is relatively new in Idaho, but Dan has been doing Dry Needling for over 13-years. Dry Needling is taking a mono-filament needle inserted into the body to elicit a localized twitch response of a trigger point, encourage healing of a bone stress fracture with periosteal pecking, or induce an acute inflammatory response to address chronic pain conditions.


The Goal of Dry Needling

  • Promote tissue healing

  • Reduce pain

  • Inactivate trigger points

  • Restore function

  • Diminish inflammation

  • Restore blood flow

  • Relax muscles

An Active Approach

Rarely is dry needling used as a standalone treatment. We see dry needling as a tool that we use in conjunction with a variety of other therapies to achieve the desired outcomes of our rehabilitation efforts. It is often combined with joint, soft tissue, or fascial mobilization, exercise, and stretching, among other treatment approaches.
