I use dry needling to help treat pain and movement impairments. The term dry needling means that the needle doesn’t have medication to perform an actual injection. It is actually a western medicine technique that is backed by research. The treatment can reduce pain, improve range of motion, and support rehabilitation.
Osteopathic manipulation is a hands-on technique that is used to treat complaints from head to toe. Many complaints can be treated effectively without medications. This technique is used for joints, muscles, ligaments, and the fascia. It can be used to treat headaches, back pain, TMJ disorder, plantar fasciitis, and more!
Prolotherapy & PRP Injections
Prolotherapy triggers the body to heal and repair injured musculoskeletal tissue. It can help strengthen and repair an injury or weakened site by producing new collagen tissue to stabilize the joint. I often use platelet-rich plasma treatments or blood plasma injections that have been enriched with platelets and connective tissue growth factors. This triggers a natural repair process in the body to restore damaged tissues. There are several conditions for which platelet-rich plasma treatments may be beneficial. Some examples include:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Chronic neck or back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Ligament tears
- Muscle injuries
- Spinal stenosis
- Sprains and strains
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for platelet-rich plasma treatments?
You may be a candidate for platelet-rich plasma treatments if you have any type of chronic pain or tissue damage. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to find out more about platelet-rich plasma treatments and whether they are right for you.
What should I expect from a platelet-rich plasma injection?
Platelet-rich plasma injections are on the cutting edge of modern medicine. The process begins with your blood being drawn and then placed into a centrifuge that separates the platelets. The treatment area is then numbed before the platelets are re-injected. This process usually takes about a half hour and causes very minimal discomfort.
What types of results can I expect from this treatment?
It may take some time for platelet-rich plasma injections to begin working. You may need additional treatments to achieve desirable results. Though outcomes vary from patient to patient, most results are permanent.

Used for its many health benefits, acupuncture therapy is considered safe and effective when administered by a trained healthcare professional. Sessions consist of very fine needles being placed into the skin. Some people feel tingling or numbness at these points, but most feel very little or no discomfort at all. Many people report experiencing relief from physical and mental health conditions following one or more treatments.
Did you know?
Acupuncture is used by approximately three million Americans every year. The therapy has been growing in popularity in the States, yet has been used in Eastern medicine since ancient times.
