What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a technique we use to treat musculoskeletal pain and movement issues. We normally include this treatment as part of an overall pain management plan that includes exercise, stretching, massage, and other techniques. During this treatment, a very small, thin, sharp needle is inserted through your skin to treat the underlying myofascial trigger points.

Benefits of Dry Needling

In the word myofascial, myo- means muscle. Fascia is the thin, white connective tissue that wraps around your muscles. Trigger points are the knotted, tender areas that develop within muscle tissue. These trigger points can be highly sensitive and painful to touch. Stimulating these trigger points with dry needling can help relieve and reduce the inflammation and tenderness of the surrounding muscle tissue.

When dry needling is applied to your muscles and surrounding tissues, it decreases muscle tightness, increases blood flow, and reduces pain.

Dry needling is useful in treating the following conditions:

  • Joint issues
  • Disc issues
  • Tendinitis
  • Migraine and tension-type headaches
  • Jaw and mouth problems, such as Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Whiplash
  • Repetitive motion disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Spinal issues
  • Pelvic pain
  • Night cramps
  • Phantom limb pain

Dr. Ward is great to work with. He’s treated me on a few occasions, but 2 of my athletic teenagers much more. We all love the way we feel the days following our adjustments. I appreciate his hard work to keep them out on the field.

Dr. Ward treats my husband and I who seem to always be a bit out of shape. He’s awesome! He takes his time to figure out what’s wrong and the best way to fix it. He adjusted both my kids when they were babies and were gassy & colicky… we say he has magic hands. You won’t regret going to

Dr. Ward was able to see me quickly after I reached out (same day!) for lots of pain in my shoulder/neck area. He did not rush through the appointment.

Dr. Ward is the best Chiropractor I’ve ever used. As a weight lifter I thrash on my body and Dr .Ward is through in his care. I’m not rushed in and out. He doesn’t just use wonky new age tools – he actually is physical and manipulates my body! I love that he doesn’t force me to have a 6

Nathan J.

I can’t express enough how wonderful Dr. Ward is. I’ve seen many chiropractors in Twin Falls, and nothing helped me. My back was completely out – I could barely walk. The first day I went in, I could barely get to the front door. After leaving I was able to walk again. After a couple weeks of weekly appointments, my
