Dry Needling

Unlocking Relief Through Precision Therapy

Are you seeking effective relief from muscle pain, tension, or chronic discomfort? Welcome to Axis Hand and Physical Therapy, where our specialized dry needling services offer a targeted approach to alleviate pain and restore your body's natural balance. Our trained practitioners utilize this evidence-based technique to address muscular issues and promote overall well-being.

What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a therapeutic technique that involves inserting thin needles into trigger points or knots in muscles to alleviate pain and improve muscle function. Unlike acupuncture, dry needling targets specific muscular issues rather than energy pathways. This precise method can lead to rapid pain relief and improved range of motion.

Conditions We Address

Dry needling can be beneficial for a range of conditions, including:

Muscle Pain

Alleviating muscle knots, tightness, and discomfort.

Chronic Pain

Offering relief for persistent pain, including lower back pain, neck pain, and more.

Sports Injuries

Assisting in the recovery of sports-related injuries and improving athletic performance.

Joint Dysfunction

Addressing muscular contributions to joint pain and stiffness.


Relieving tension headaches, TMJ and migraines caused by muscular issues.

Our Approach

Expert Practitioners: Our practitioners are experienced professionals who have undergone specialized training in dry needling techniques. They are skilled in identifying trigger points and providing safe and effective treatment.

Personalized Assessment: We begin with a comprehensive assessment to understand your unique condition, pain points, and goals. This assessment guides the development of a tailored dry needling plan.

Targeted Treatment: Using ultra-thin needles, we gently insert them into trigger points to release tension, improve blood flow, and promote the body's natural healing response. The needles used in dry needling are sterile and disposed of after each use.

Comprehensive Care: Dry needling is often used in conjunction with other therapies to provide a well-rounded approach to pain management and healing. Our practitioners work closely with you to create a treatment plan.
