Why we use dry needling for back pain and sciatica treatment at SSOR

Back pain and sciatica treatment plans must include multiple therapy types in order to be the most effective for you. At SSOR, we’re well aware of this fact. One type of therapy that we commonly include in treatment plans for these conditions is dry needling. However, you may not know anything at all about dry needling.

Dry needling is a form of physical therapy that uses needles that don’t have any lubrication on them or injectable medication in them. This therapy is used to reach muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves below your skin, and it’s also known as trigger-point dry needling. One thing we can assure you of is that dry needling is very helpful for treating back pain and sciatica. We offer this reassurance because many people see the word “needle” and think this therapy will be very painful. Actually, we’re typically able to do dry needling treatments with minimal discomfort to you.

The main reason that we include dry needling in the back pain and sciatica plans so often is the benefits it offers. Some of these benefits include:

  • Reducing pain
  • Relieving muscle, ligament, tendon and nerve tension
  • Improving lower back function
  • Decreasing recovery times

Are you ready to take advantage of the benefits offered by dry needling? The SSOR teams in Prairie Village, Overland Park and Shawnee, Kansas are here to help you with this and other forms of treatment. We even offer free 15-minute screenings to get your back pain and sciatica treatment started.
