Dry Needling Treatment in Charlotte NC


Do you have muscle pain? Do you have those extra-sensitive areas in your neck, back, or even into your arms or legs that negatively affects your day, or just drives you crazy? Do you just suffer through this pain and tension, or can't seem to find the time or funds for 60 or 90-minute massages on a regular basis?

Here at University City Chiropractic, we prioritize the rehabilitation of the hard tissue of the body (spinal and extremity bone and the joints that connect them). Additionally, the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) that connect to and affect the hard tissue needs to be addressed. Dry needling in Charlotte NC may be exactly what your neck, back, shoulder, etc. may need.

Dry Needling in Charlotte NC

Dry Needling is a new therapy that is safe, minimally discomforting, and addresses the main causes of muscular pain - trigger points, inflammation, and tension. Trigger points are the "nodules, or knots, and tight bands that develop in the muscle" according to the Dry Needling Institute. Similar to acupuncture, a thin monofilament needle is inserted directly into the tissue in need, as opposed to the acupuncture meridians, which is scientifically proven to release the tension and inflammation out of the irritated soft tissue.

What Are the Advantages of Dry Needling

  • Access - Dry Needling can be administered on a normal patient visit in conjunction with an adjustment - giving you full access to an all-in-one visit. Get all spinal and muscular issues resolved in one quick visit!
  • Down-Regulating Therapy - Dry Needling is what's considered a down-regulating therapy. This means that the pain and tension that you're currently feeling is lowered from that point only - not increased like through how tortuous a deep tissue massage can be at times!
  • Depth - The needle in Dry Needling is inserted as deep as needed - which has the ability to rehabilitate muscle that surface massage just can't get to.
  • Cost - Our prices are much more cost-effective than other physical therapy options or even massage - especially when combined with an adjustment!
  • Twice the Results! - Dry Needling is scientifically proven to result in improvement that lasts twice as as long as manual massage!
