Physiotherapist applying dry needling therapy on woman back


If you have a spine condition, your doctor may recommend dry needling. This type of therapy has been shown to reduce the pain associated with spine conditions.

During a 30- to 60-minute treatment, therapists insert needles into muscles near affected areas of your spine. Your body responds by sending blood to repair the injured area. Dry needling can reduce inflammation and break up scar tissue.

The spine program at Pelham Medical Center offers dry needling as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Our spine care team also offers acupuncture, another needle-based treatment.
