Shane O.

After the first treatment my elbow felt pretty close to normal again. After one more treatment I was good to go.

Bernadette D.

I am very happy to report that within a month of treatment I felt some immediate improvement and was able to increase my exercise level by at least 50 percent without increased pain. I loved walking and gradually running on the treadmill in the pool and doing my exercises in the water along with dry needling. By three months of treatment, I was pain-free and had a greater range of mobility.

Robin B.

The knowledge base of the owners, Ron and Estee, is impressive and extensive. I so appreciate the alternative treatments such as dry needling and spinal manipulation, as well as, the traditional PT treatments, and to receive it all under one roof is a huge bonus and definite convenience.

Myrna D.

I first came to Estee for rehab after shoulder surgery. She did an amazing job! After the second shoulder surgery and subsequent rehabilitation with Estee, I progressed wonderfully! I had neck pain from a significant multi-level cervical fusion, and after one session of dry needling, I was pain-free. Now I‘m a patient for life!

How does dry needling work?

This treatment method is used by our licensed Lexington, KY physical therapists as a way to relieve pain.

When performing dry needling, our physical therapist will insert a sterile needle through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility.

While it is a common misconception, dry needling is not acupuncture. It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems.

While there are some similarities, dry needling is strictly based on Western medicine principles and research. It provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal, ultimately reducing pain in the process.

Does dry needling hurt?

Most of our patients report feeling little to no discomfort when undergoing dry needling treatments.

Our highly-trained physical therapists know how to make the process as painless as possible; however, some patients may still experience a “twitch response” with the insertion of the needle.

This is comparable to a quick muscle cramp or ache. The 24-48 hours following a dry needling treatment may also result in muscle soreness, which should go away on its own.

Sore muscles can be treated at home by applying ice and/or heat packs and drinking plenty of fluids.

So, how will I benefit from dry needling?

There are a large variety of musculoskeletal issues that can be treated with dry needling. When paired with our traditional exercise-based physical therapy treatments and advanced manual therapy techniques, we have found that the vast majority of our patients achieved the pain-free goals they were aiming towards.

After conducting a comprehensive evaluation to assess the nature of your condition, our Lexington, KY physical therapist will let you know if dry needling is the best course of treatment for you.

We have used dry needling to treat several diverse conditions, from chronic pain sufferers to athletes experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness.
