Thanks to modern medicine, there are many treatments to choose from when you’re in pain. A recent treatment is especially gaining popularity—dry needling. But as a relatively new procedure, where do you go for treatment? Peak Performance Physical Therapy has a number of professionals who are skilled at dry needling within Baton Rouge. Schedule your visit today and relieve your pain ASAP.
How Does Dry Needling Work?
Trigger Point Dry Needling is a pretty straightforward treatment. Small, thin needles are inserted into the muscles at ‘trigger points’. These are points on the body that cause a specific effect in another part of the body, usually a local twitch response. This response causes the body to relax, decreasing pain and improving flexibility.
Sounds pretty close to acupuncture, right? Both techniques use small needles in their treatments, but the similarities stop there. Acupuncture uses these needles with the intent of balancing the body’s energies. Dry needling uses small needles by inserting them into trigger points, removing tension in the muscles. Acupuncture may be an older practice, but dry needling has more research to back it up.
It’s not uncommon to worry about safety with a relatively new technique. But don’t fret, dry needling is a highly regulated service. Only those physical therapists who have completed extensive clinical education and training specifically in dry needling procedures and techniques can practice dry needling. Only the best therapists can practice dry needling in Baton Rouge. And we’re lucky to have a handful of these professionals at our Peak Performance locations.
Why Should I Get Treatment?

By releasing the pressure in your trigger points, pain and toxins are found to slowly ebb away. And while it is rarely a standalone procedure, dry needling has a number of benefits that follow.
- Increasing blood flow
