Dry Needling

What are trigger points?

Trigger points are sensitive spots within a muscle that can be tender to touch. They can form after an injury or overuse of your muscles. Touching an active trigger point can refer to pain in other parts of your body.

Our physical therapists use dry needling to relax your trigger points and reduce pain.

Dry needling – Pain relief to maintain the quality of your active life

Dry needling offers an alternative treatment option for pain relief and improved muscle movement. Also known as trigger point dry needling or intramuscular manual therapy, the treatment uses a dry needle — a needle without medicine — to deactivate trigger points in your muscle.


In accordance with Virginia law, a referral for dry needling is required prior to treatment. If you have an existing referral or need a new referral, please book a consultation and our physical therapists will discuss the treatment options with you.
