Are you tired of being sidelined by chronic pain or discomfort that's holding you back from enjoying your favorite activities? 

Have you tried numerous treatments that just haven't delivered the results you need? Don't give up hope just yet - performance dry needling may be the solution you've been looking for!

Performance dry needling is a safe, highly effective and minimally invasive treatment that can help release tension, reduce pain, and promote healing. It's a relatively simple procedure that involves inserting thin, sterile needles into trigger points or knots in the muscles to help release tension and promote healing. 

Electrodes are often attached to the needles to maximize the effect of the inserted needles.  

And, at Next Level Physio, we offer the ReGen Physio Program, which includes dry needling as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may also include modalities like shockwave, cold laser, and blood flow restriction therapy, all designed to help you get back to living life to the fullest.

Who Can Benefit from Performance Dry Needling?

Whether you're an athlete or live an active lifestyle, dry needling can help alleviate chronic pain or discomfort that's been unresponsive to other treatments. It's been shown to be highly effective for a variety of conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, tension headaches, sports injuries, and more.

So if you're dealing with any of the following issues, dry needling may be worth considering:

  • Stiff back or knees? Get back to enjoying your favorite activities, whether it's golfing, lifting, or running.
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis? Improve your performance in Crossfit, F45, swimming, or throwing without feeling restricted and falling short of your personal best.
  • Suffering from headaches? Get past the throbbing headaches and think more clearly for work, life, and family.
  • TMJ pain? Enjoy eating again by reducing tension in the muscles of your face that control how you chew.
  • Plantar fasciitis? Get back to pounding the pavement again and enjoy running without pain or discomfort.
  • Muscle cramps? Dry needling can help reduce muscle spasms and improve muscle function in active people.
  • Chronic pain relief? Dry needling can help relieve pain caused by trigger points or tenderness in the muscles, providing much-needed relief for patients who have plateaued with their physical therapy.

How Can Performance Dry Needling Help You Recover Faster?

At Next Level Physio, we're committed to helping our patients achieve their recovery goals as quickly and safely as possible. Here's how dry needling can help:

  1. Improves range of motion and mobility: By reducing muscle tension, dry needling can help improve flexibility and range of motion, which is particularly beneficial for athletes or individuals looking to improve their physical performance.
  2. Increases circulation: Needles can help stimulate blood flow and promote healing. This can be especially helpful for patients who are recovering from an injury or surgery to heal faster.
  3. Accelerates recovery: Dry needling promotes the release of endorphins and other natural painkillers, which can help accelerate the healing process. This can be particularly beneficial for patients who are looking to get back to their normal activities as quickly as possible.

Performance Dry Needling is part of our ReGen Physio Program at Next Level Physio, which also includes blood flow restriction therapy (BFRT), shockwave, cold laser, and cupping therapy.
