Yes, yes, yes to dry needling!!!

Dry needling has literally changed my life after years of pain. I have suffered with severe back pain after a disc ruptured a several years ago. While the disc situation has improved over time, the muscular area became increasingly tight and debilitating to where I haven’t been able to bend over in years without pain.  I have had injections (did not help), regular PT (helps to a point) but nothing has helped me as much as dry needling and manual PT therapy.
