Dry Needling for Lower Back Pain in WV

Dry needling is a treatment used in conjunction with other therapies to get the most out of your treatment. Dry needling promotes positive biochemical changes to reduce pain. This treatment causes twitch responses from the spinal cord, breaking the pain cycle and giving you relief from pain in your back or other problem areas. If you are not finding relief from other physical therapy treatments, talk to the staff at Country Roads Physical Therapy in WV. While dry needling is not for everyone, we can review your options and see if this treatment will benefit you.

Pain Relief is Around the Corner with Manual Therapy

Manual therapy can help to treat different types of lower back pain, including muscle spasms, joint dysfunction, and age-related pains. The physical therapists at Country Roads have extensive knowledge in manual therapy techniques, and we will be happy to discuss the various options for you. A few treatments may include:

  • Myofascial Treatment
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Muscle Reeducation
  • Muscle Energy Techniques

All patients are different, and your designated therapist will work with you to find the best treatment to get effective results. If manual therapy is not for you, there are many other treatments that can help ease pain and get you back to enjoying your life again.

Do I Need Physical Therapy? Signs that At-Home Treatments Won’t Help

The American Chiropractic Association reports that over 30 million people suffer from lower back pain every year. While some pain may relate to a pulled muscle or overuse, there is always the chance that the problem is more severe. If you are experiencing chronic or debilitating back pain, do not wait – call your doctor right away. With a simple check-up you may find that it is nothing to worry about, but with the right medical attention you may find that physical therapy or surgery is required.
