EFFECTIVE 2/9/17 - db Orthopedic Physical Therapy and its trained physical therapists will NO LONGER be performing Dry Needling because of a ruling written by the NJ Attorney General stating it is not within our scope of practice.  Stay tuned for changes.  Until then, the material on this page is for education purposes only.
Physical Therapy treatment can often reduce pain without medication or surgery.

What is Dry Needling?

Whether you have been living with pain on a daily basis, or your pain comes and goes; whether you have pain following a surgery or pain from athletic participation, physical therapy can, in most cases, significantly reduce your pain and help you move on to a more active and pain-free lifestyle. For many patients, physical therapy treatments can alleviate pain without the need for medication or surgery. There are many different types of pain that can be alleviated through physical therapy, such as:
  • Musculoskeletal Pain (neck, low back, leg, and shoulder pain)
  • Herniated Discs
  • Tendinitis/Bursitis
  • Degenerative Joint Problems (osteoarthritis)
  • Inflammatory Joint Problems (rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Acute Muscle Spasm

Learn what dry needling is and how can it help you.

NJ law now allows direct access to physical therapy services without needing a physician prescription.  Some insurances may still require a referral.
