ORA PT | Dry Needling


ORA Swimming

Dry needling treatment for muscle pain is available at ORA Physical Therapy.

During this procedure, a licensed physical therapist inserts a small, thin needle into a muscular trigger point to help loosen tight muscles and allow patients to regain mobility. Trigger points are a taut band of tissue within a muscle group and can cause pain in other parts of the body.

Dry needling at trigger points can help activate and relax tense muscles. The needle (without medication or injection) is inserted to stimulate blood flow and break up muscular adhesions. After treatment, patients report restored motion and flexibility.

Dry needling effectively treats muscle pain in the knees, shoulders, back, and hips—and can even offer relief from painful headaches. ORA employs physical therapists trained and licensed to perform dry needling.

Contact ORA Physical Therapy today if you would like to schedule an appointment or learn more about dry needling.

Water Works Wonders:
Five Reasons to Consider Aquatic Therapy at ORA

According to Caitlyn Mejia, Aquatic Therapy Lead at ORA Physical Therapy, “water works wonders!” Learn more about aquatic therapy now.

“The mission of our new running program at ORA Physical Therapy is to rehab and educate runners on safely returning to running while providing proper techniques for injury prevention. Your lifestyle, life-stage, and current fitness level determines what kind of goals are realistic. We not only collaborate with ORA’s physicians to address return-to-sport rehab, but also educate and address a patient’s potential mobility issues to prevent future injuries."

“During dry needling, we target trigger points within muscle tissue that are knotted or tight and cause pain, tension, and reduced mobility. The therapy can be used for neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as headaches, tennis elbow, foot and most joint pain elsewhere in the body.””

“I’ve seen patients with complicated histories of mobility and strength loss, who had trouble even walking on their own, make great strides in their quality of life. The pool is a wonderful way to transition to dry land, and it’s gratifying to see what a difference the hydrotherapy can make.”
