About Dry Needling Success

Back Pain Dry Needling Therapy uses acupuncture needles and is called dry because no medication is injected. A small filament (needle) is inserted into the problem areas of muscle or myofascial tissue that is not responding to other treatment. The procedure of the needle create a lesion resulting in stimulation of blood flow and therefore healing of the affected area.

What Our Patients Have to Say

Shane Melaugh

I've been going to LPT for the last few weeks to help improve my shoulder after surgery. It has been an excellent experience. The physical therapists and PTAs are fun, caring, and knowledgable. I came in with a MEGA knot between my shoulder and back, with limited ability to move my neck or arm, and serious pain. By the time I left they had blasted away most of the knot and pain with ultrasound, accupuncture, and massage therapies. I was shocked how much they could improve my life in 60 mins. Best of all my shoulder is healing rapidly since the surgery. Thanks Shane, Ansley, and Amanda!

Lower Back Pain

Our equipment is designed to accurately test your back, identifying existing or potential problems. Precise measurements of range of motion, strength and endurance are then compared to established norms.

A progressive strengthening program is then developed to isolate and strengthen the weakened area.

Our exercise machines are precisely adjusted to each individual patient during the first therapy session. The back or neck muscles are gradually strengthened leading to long-term success for the patient. The precision of equipment training makes it much more effective than conventional strength training.
