Dry Needling

Dry Needling

At Summit Performance Therapy, we are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality of care to help them achieve optimal wellness. One of the services we offer is dry needling, an innovative therapy that can provide significant relief for individuals dealing with muscle pain, tightness, and tension.

Dry needling is a form of therapy that utilizes thin needles to target specific trigger points, muscles, or connective tissue. By targeting these areas, dry needling can help to relieve pressure and alleviate pain and tightness in the affected area. This can help to improve muscle function and reduce inflammation, leading to improved mobility and a reduction in pain.

Dry needling is a safe and effective treatment option for a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, and tension in the neck and shoulders, as well as conditions such as plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It’s also great for athletes looking to improve muscle performance and recovery.

Our therapists are highly trained and experienced in the use of dry needling; and will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals. We’ll also consider your medical history and any medications you are taking to ensure that dry needling is safe and appropriate for you.
