Functional Dry Needling brings lasting relief for a broad range of neuromuscular dysfunctions.  We are happy to announce that Jeremy Warford, Registered Physiotherapist, is certified to administer Dry Needling.

If you suffer from muscular tightness and spasm it often leads to compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine.  When these nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected.  The referral pain can lead to secondary dysfunction such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility, chronic pain, and a range of other disorders.

Dry Needling is a highly effective treatment, unequaled in identifying and eliminating these referring or “hidden” sources of neuromuscular disorders.  The treatment involves identifying the source of the pain and advancing a small filament needle into the related muscles, eliciting a small twitch response and then relaxing of the muscle.

According to Kinetacore, the identification and stimulation of these trigger points can “reboot” the muscle to alleviate both the original problem area as well as the secondary pain.  Many patients experience dramatic pain relief and improved function in just a few treatments, often with lasting relief.
