Rockville Physical Therapy provides all types of patients with comprehensive physical therapy services that improve function, encourage independence, and enhance the quality of life. Whether you are an elite athlete rebounding from a recent injury, a victim of chronic pain seeking to manage your discomfort, or a senior looking to maintain an active, independent lifestyle, Rockville Physical Therapy is focused on providing you with the therapy you need to lead the life you desire.
Like many physical therapy clinics, we offer a variety of services. From manual therapy, massage therapy and having the patient complete therapeutic exercises to using different modalities such as ultrasound, electric stimulation and mechanical traction. One thing that separates this clinic from most other clinics is the use of dry needling in the treatment of acute or chronic pain in the body. Dry needling is a technique that uses acupuncture needles (but not an acupuncture technique) to relieve pain in the body. This procedure is only used by very few practitioners in the area.
For more information on this technique, check out the APTA’s in-depth article on dry needling. If this doesn’t answer your questions, feel free to contact us regarding this technique.
