Dry Needling in Virginia Beach

dry needling on patients shoulderAt Body Logic, we believe in offering a wide range of treatment options to help our patients achieve optimal health and wellness. One such modality that has shown remarkable results is dry needling.

What Is It & How Does It Work?

Dry needling involves the insertion of thin needles into specific trigger points or muscle knots to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and promote healing. Unlike acupuncture, which focuses on energy flow and meridians, dry needling approaches treatment from a neurological standpoint. It aims to address not only the affected area but also related areas that may contribute to the issue.

Dr. Rachel provides this treatment at the practice. She completed certification with Integrative Dry Needling, which allows her to use this technique to address a range of musculoskeletal conditions as well as prevent and treat injuries.

What Are Some Benefits?

This treatment provides relief for both acute and chronic conditions. It can also be used preventively, even before an injury occurs, to enhance performance and reduce the risk of future issues. By addressing underlying muscle imbalances and promoting proper neuromuscular function, dry needling helps athletes optimize their physical potential.

This multifaceted approach promotes the body’s natural healing processes and can provide relief for a variety of conditions, including

  • Myofascial pain
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Migraine/ headache
  • Injury prevention
  • Sports injuries/pulled muscles
  • Pre or post-surgery

Integrative Approach for Comprehensive Treatment

One of the key advantages of dry needling is its integrative nature. When treating a specific area, such as the shoulder or knee, Dr. Rachel also addresses the associated structures. For example, if you have a shoulder issue, she may also target the neck, as the nerves supplying the shoulder muscles originate from there. This comprehensive approach ensures we treat the whole picture rather than focusing on localized symptoms.
