Dry needling is a technique used to treat trigger point pain and myofascial pain.
Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include Acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.
I am the only physician in the Tampa, FL area who has extensive training in both Dry Needling and Orthopedic Acupuncture.
This is why professional sports teams trust me so much with their players.
