Dry Needling

Dr. Scott Dixon DPT, CSCS, Cert DN, FMT has been treating patients from Norcross, Peach Tree Corner to Atlanta and the surrounding cities successfully for years. What exactly is dry needle therapy in a nutshell? Dry needling is a therapeutic treatment where a thin needle is pushed through the skin in order that it may stimulate a trigger point. The needle is slowly and carefully inserted into a place on the body – moved slightly if needed and then removed shortly after insertion. Then that process is repeated as often as needed. The intention is to relieve tension, inflammation or other issues that are causing the patient pain. What are the Top 3 Benefits of Dry Needling that we see in our office?
