Dry Needling

Dry needling is a procedure Dr. Lee uses where a thin needle is inserted into the bare skin into muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. Most patients do not feel the insertion of the needle; while others feel more of a slight poke or pitch to the skin. Depending on the area and pain the needle(s) can feel more invasive in others places of the body.

The needle remains in the affected area to release the painful knotted muscle to create a local twitch reflex; which is both diagnostic and therapeutic. Dry needling can be used on a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Trigger point pain is often the source of chronic pain, yet is widely ignored by many health care providers.
Areas of dry needling can be in these areas of the body, but is not limited to:

  • Lower/Mid/Upper back
  • Shoulder
  • Rotator Cuff
  • Hip
  • Gluteus
  • Elbow
  • Knee
  • Feet

Is Dry Needling similar to Acupuncture?
No, the only similarity between the two is the use of the small, sterile acupuncture needle. At first glance, the procedures seem similar, but they have their differences on how they affect you. Acupuncture focuses on restoring balance and energy using various traditional Chinese medicine techniques.

Whereas, dry needling is a newer technique that is Western medicine based; concentrating specifically on the injured area to improve dysfunctional tissue to restore function and mobility by myofascial trigger points.

Tool Assisted Scar Tissue/Adhesion Removal


Dr. Lee uses the Ellipse tool to reduce scar tissue in areas of previous injury. The procedure Dr. Lee helps improve the restricted or inflamed area to improve function. After an injury there is damaged tissue, but it begins heals itself—imagine pieces of plywood being placed for construction haphazardly; Dr. Lee uses the Ellipse tool to “sand down” the surface of injury. Scar tissue can limit a person’s range of motion, so adhesion removal is necessary in most instances. Overall, the tool and procedure can help reduce pain and improve motion.

TMJ, known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder/Dysfunction is when you experience radiating pain in the face, neck, and shoulders; which can later cause symptoms of headaches, earaches, clicking or popping of the jaw. Some people with TMJ can develop chronic pain. Dr. Lee follows an innovative protocol to release and reduce the pain using massage and trigger point therapy.

Rehabilitation/Muscle Work


Physical therapy consists of, but is not limited to, corrective postural exercises, postural education, stretches to strengthen and stabilize muscle joints and modalities for balance. Rehabilitation can involve the Posture Pump, which steadily improves posture by decreasing disc bulges and spinal cord indentations while enhancing the lordotic curves and spinal ranges of motion. Rehabilitation and muscle work has the ability to restore range of motion, relieve back pain, and strengthening previous injuries muscles at a nonsurgical approach.

Our office also utilizes Rapid Release technology, which relies upon the science of resonance to target scar tissue adhesions with a specific frequency. In addition, this frequency is in a range that is known to reduce muscle guarding and spasms.

Disc decompression


Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine with the use a traction table and/or a auto flexion table. The goal for both traction and the auto flexion table is to promote optimal healing at a nonsurgical approach. This approach helps patients with bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, or a herniated disc.
