How Dry Needling Can Help Knee Pain

Do you have knee pain from running or working out?

I’ve got a solution for you! Dry needling is a technique to release tight muscles that will blow you away! You will get instant improvement in flexibility and pain.

When treating patients I generally spend 30 minutes doing hands-on, deep tissue work which makes you feel better but I have found that when combined with dry needling, deep tissue work gets my patients better faster. And isn’t that what we all want? A fast recovery and a #painfree life for the win.

After the dry needling you will do some stretches and strengthening exercises; we will also work to correct any abnormal movement patterns. Some of my favorite stretches include:

Standing Quad Stretch

Foam Rolling of Iliotibial (IT) Band

Hamstring Stretch

After treatment you are encouraged to run or do your normal workout that day so you can use what you’ve gained from our session.

Dry needling is not a one size fits all treatment. When you come in we will determine how many sessions you will need. The great news is most insurances cover dry needling as a form of manual therapy; the only current exception is Medicare part B.

If you have any questions on how dry needling can help you don’t hesitate to give our clinic a call and schedule your free pain consultation.
