Dr. Peter Scher, our chiropractor at The Aspen Club, is certified in dry needling, an amazing rehabilitation technique. Come in and try it today, it works miracles!
Dry needling is a technique used to stimulate the body’s natural healing response for repairing injured soft tissue. Soft tissue injuries include muscle spasm, muscle strains, ligament sprains, and nerve irritation.
Dry needling is also excellent for managing pain without the use of pharmaceuticals such as nsaids, pain killers, steroids and muscle relaxants.
Dry needling is an excellent complement to Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. By reducing pain, controlling inflammation and speeding up the body’s natural tissue repair process, a patient will heal faster from their injury and be able to participate in rehabilitative exercise sooner and more effectively. The goal is always to get a patient to stability as quickly as possible and get them back out there doing what they love. Dry Needling is one more tool in the bag used to help speed this process up.
Dry needling is a bit different than Acupuncture, mostly in the analysis. Dry needling uses Acupuncture needles to increase microcirculation to damaged soft tissue. Acupuncture focuses on the Meridian system, whereas Dry needling focuses on the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. We like to think of this technique as an allstar apporach to merging Eastern and Western medicine philosophies.
