Dry Needling in Poway, Encinitas, San Diego, CA 

Dry Needling and Myofascial Trigger Point Acupuncture

We are San Diego's first choice for dry needling acupuncture, an indispensable tool for treating muscle and fascia pain. This safe and effective technique works by eliminating hyperactive muscle fibers that send pain through nerve, muscle, and connective tissue in predictable patterns.

Dry needling entails the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles into hypersensitive muscle and soft tissue trigger points. Studies show that dry needling , relieves pain by promoting local tissue repair and stimulating healing mechanisms in muscle and connective tissues. When trigger points are deactivated, they become less irritable and maintain higher pain and inflammatory thresholds. 

Our providers have decades of experience in this extremely effective technique for treating and eliminating pain. Dry needling uses fine needles to stimulate the repair of highly sensitive muscle and fascia fibers that are causing pain. It is particularly effective in treating:

  • Athletic and other injuries
  • Repetitive stress and injuries from computer overuse
  • Pain in the neck, low back, jaw, shoulders, elbow, calves, hamstrings, forearms, etc.
  • Headaches
  • Foot pain and plantar fasciitis
  • Muscle strains
  • Pinched nerves or compression
  • Chronic pain and fibromyalgia
  • And more

Patients that receive dry needling benefit from the significant relief and repair of injury that it produces. Our trained Physicians and Doctors will consult with you on the best course of treatment, with a typical course comprising of one to two times a week for 4-6 weeks, followed by a re-evaluation.
