Prevea dry needling


Trigger point dry needling can help rapidly decrease pain and increase the mobility of your muscles. Trigger point dry needling is a minimally invasive technique that uses sterile, thin, filament needles to de-activate muscular trigger points. Sometimes, it may be combined with electrical stimulation to help with comfort and overall results.
With more than 40 certified dry needling physical therapists, we are able to offer these services at multiple locations throughout Northeast Wisconsin.
