Dry Needling Therapy at Sol Physical Therapy: Targeted Pain Relief and Muscle Relaxation

Specialized Care for Musculoskeletal Pain and Dysfunction

Sol Physical Therapy offers dry needling therapy to help individuals suffering from musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Our skilled therapists provide precise and effective treatment to alleviate pain, release muscle tension, and improve mobility for those experiencing a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

What is Dry Needling Therapy?

Dry needling therapy involves the insertion of thin needles into trigger points within muscles, tendons, ligaments, or fascia to release tension and alleviate pain. Unlike acupuncture, which is based on traditional Chinese medicine principles, dry needling targets specific anatomical structures to address musculoskeletal issues and promote healing.

Conditions We Treat

  • Muscle Tension and Trigger Points: Targeting tight, knotted muscles and trigger points that cause pain and restrict movement.
  • Myofascial Pain Syndrome: Addressing chronic pain and tightness in the muscles and surrounding connective tissue.
  • Neck and Back Pain: Alleviating pain and stiffness in the neck, upper back, lower back, and shoulders.
  • Headaches and Migraines: Providing relief from tension headaches and migraines caused by muscle tension and trigger points.
  • Joint Pain and Dysfunction: Supporting recovery from conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis by reducing pain and improving range of motion.
  • Sports Injuries: Accelerating healing and relieving pain associated with sports-related injuries such as strains, sprains, and overuse injuries.

Our Approach

  1. Comprehensive Assessment: We conduct a thorough evaluation to identify areas of muscle tension, trigger points, and musculoskeletal dysfunction.
  2. Precise Needle Placement: Using sterile, disposable needles, we target specific trigger points and areas of muscle tightness to achieve optimal results.
  3. Pain Relief and Muscle Relaxation: Dry needling promotes the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals in the body and encourages muscle relaxation, providing immediate relief and improved function.
  4. Patient Education: We educate patients about the dry needling process, potential benefits, and what to expect during and after treatment.
  5. Integration with Other Therapies: Dry needling may be combined with other physical therapy techniques, such as manual therapy, exercise, and modalities, to enhance overall treatment effectiveness.

Debbie A Ortho

I have been to many different physical therapy places but of all the ones I have been to, I must say, SOL Physical Therapy is the best. All the therapists, techs and front office personnel are unbelievably friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to assist you and your questions. They never try and rush you through your therapy (and I have been places where that was definitely the case). I would recommend SOL to anyone that needs physical therapy, they are top notch!!

Aimee CHT

Sol Physical Therapy is such an incredible place to go for physical therapy. I have been going for over a year and have never once had a problem. Everyone from the front desk staff, to the techs, to the physical therapists are extremely helpful, care about the patients, and will do whatever is needed to support you as the patient.

Tali B – Pediatric

We brought our 4 month old in to see AJ for torticollis. I am beyond happy we found this place as AJ was AMAZING with our son. He was personable and explanatory with everything and our son smiled so much during our visit while he was checking out his range of motion and doing stretches. We have upcoming appointments and though he is booked out a good month in advance it is WORTH the wait ten fold ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sarah G – Ortho OT CHT

I have had the pleasure of seeing Stephanie L, Dan, Rachel, and Joe at the Fort Lowell location. They are all extremely knowledgeable and know how to make the experience fun, even when you are in pain. I would (and have) highly recommend them to anyone who needs PT or OT. Kailey at the front desk is always very kind and willing to help as well.

Nick T – Pediatric

We took our daughter here to get evaluated for her torticollis. The staff was very friendly and helped us get set up with a few appointments at once. Our physical therapist AJ was very informative and was gentle with our baby. Definitely looking forward to coming back for future appointments.

D Val – Vestibular

The BEST! Philip is my Vestibular/Physical therapist. I have been diagnosed with bilateral, Superior Canal Dehiscence. Migraines, balance problems, hearing loss, the whole 9 yards. After a procedure to correct one side (done at UCLA), I had to find a “VRT”. My husband and I absolutely love the results and improvements in my daily life. Thank you Philip, Patrick, Jessie, Jessa, A.J, Matt and Sharon, for the help you all provide to your patients!!

– D. Val (via Google Reviews)

Barbara S – General

We picked this physical therapy business randomly as it was close to home and they take my insurance. As it turned out, we were very pleased. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The thing that pleased me most was that they asked how things went since the last session. Then based on what I said, they tailored the day’s exercises.
