Practitioners have been using thin-filament “dry needles” to rid people of pain and to improve performance for nearly half a century. Physical therapists in the state of Montana have been approved to perform this treatment for just over a year.
The notion of having a needle placed into your sore muscle may seem counterintuitive. You might ponder whether a treatment approach like this adds insult to injury. Before making that leap, however, use the information provided on our webpage and the video link below to disconnect the dots between these types of needles . . . and pain.
Alpine Physical Therapy has pursued advanced training in this new technology. Currently, 3 therapists at Alpine are trained. According to Alpine’s owner, Brent Dodge, “The results we’re seeing are startlingly positive and consistent, to the point (pun intended) that we’re pushing to get all 12 of our physical therapists trained to do dry needling.”
Continuing, Dodge says, “It’s not a stand-alone treatment, but in conjunction with the advanced services we offer at Alpine, our patients are seeing and feeling the results. The word is out, and people are asking for this form of treatment.” “It’s effectiveness has proven itself with challenging neck and back pain, headaches, joint pain, tendonitis, and muscle and sports injuries . . . along with numerous other conditions”
And take just a few moments to view the following video that introduces dry needling at Alpine Physical Therapy.
