Why Use Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a technique used to treat trigger point pain and myofascial pain, improve range of motion, and expedite healing after an injury. Dry needling can and often results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe and chronic pain conditions.

Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.

At Achieve Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine of St. Petersburg, Florida, Dr. Gibbons has extensive training in both Dry Needling and Orthopedic Acupuncture.
