Ultrasound-Assisted Dry Needling
What is ultrasound-assisted dry needling?
Ultrasound-assisted dry needling is a safe and effective method of treatment performed by a licensed physical therapist that uses ultrasound to safely guide a sterile needle through the affected area(s) of the body.
During ultrasound-assisted dry needling, the needle is inserted through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected by your injury or painful condition. This helps relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.
