Dry Needle

Dry needling is the insertion of needles based on points of neurological and physiological consequence.  The goal of dry needling is reduction of pain, increased range of motion and reduction of muscle spasms.  It has many applications from hands, elbows, shoulders, back, neck, TMJ, hips, knees and feet.  It has been demonstrated to be especially effective in reduction and elimination of plantar fascitis.

How is Dry Needling different from Acupuncture? 
Dry Needling’s goal is not to move or alter meridians (invisible energy) but to specifically effect the area or associated area the therapy is applied to.

Does Dry Needling hurt? 
No. Some people feel the needle enter the skin but not painfully.  Most people feel little to nothing with the exception of immediate reduction in symptoms.

Are there different techniques used with Dry Needling? 
Yes. The techniques Dr. Hennie uses are gentle and have been proven as effective or more effective than the more aggressive techniques.
