Integrative dry needling in Bossier City and Shreveport offers you an all-natural approach to pain relief.

Dr. Jim Wiseman utilizes dry needling therapy to treat a variety of conditions. If you have back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain dry needling can reduce pain. It is also beneficial for individuals who have arm pain, such as golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel. You can also use dry needling to treat sciatica, jaw pain, and muscle spasms. For chronic sufferers of headaches and migraines dry needling therapy is a viable pain relief method.
Dry needling is effective because it triggers a mild inflammatory response. This leads to an increased ability to heal in the areas treated with dry needling. Patients appreciate the pain relief offered by integrative dry needling as it does not involve pain medications or surgery. If you are in physical therapy you can continue with the therapy even while you are getting dry needling therapy. As a part of our chiropractic care services, dry needling is highly effective for both pain relief and healing.
When you visit your Bossier City chiropractor for integrative dry needling therapy you will start with a physical exam to determine where you are in pain. Then your chiropractor in Bossier City will use sterilized, fine filament needles to perform the procedure. When you come for your dry needling session wear loose fitted clothing or a bathing suit so Dr. Wiseman can access the areas of your body for treatment. You want to avoid eating within 30 minutes of your dry needling therapy to avoid having digestion issues. You may feel some soreness following the procedure, as well as mild bruising. Use gentle stretching exercises along with an ice pack or heating pad to help ease the pain in the treated area. If you have any questions about the aftercare of your dry needling therapy sessions contact your Shreveport chiropractor.
