Dry needling

Get relief from joint and muscle pain without medications or surgery. Learn about safe, effective dry needling treatments at ProHealth Care.

What is dry needling?

During dry needling, your therapist places a very thin stainless-steel needle into your muscle at a very specific place called a myofascial trigger point. This helps reset muscles and promotes healing.
