Dr. Christina has had advanced training in a therapeutic procedure called Dry Needling. She believes that balancing the muscle system and relieving painful trigger points is the key to maintaining a healthy body.
Dry Needling involves the insertion of a sterile, solid, stainless steel needle into a muscle trigger point with the intention of achieving a desired physiological, neurological, or myofascial response. The goals of dry needling (dry meaning without the injection of medicine) is to relieve trigger points that may be tender/painful and to relax any ropey band in a muscle, which can cause pain at a site or refer pain to a specific area related to that muscle.
The goal of Dry Needling is to reduce pain and restore normal function of muscles and joints by specific, purposeful and targeted inserts of needles into carefully selected myofacial tissue, particulary in the muscles. The nervous system will be "rebooted," breaking the pain cycle and expediting healing of chronic injuries.
