Pro Performance Therapy offers outpatient orthopedic physical therapy and sport specific performance enhancement. We offer a low patient to therapist ratio allowing each patient to receive individual attention. By combining manual therapy techniques with exercise we can achieve superior results compared to either of these alone. We perform a variety of joint mobilization and soft tissue techniques including dry needling to accelerate our patients’ recovery. Our services include, but are not limited to, the evaluation and treatment of the following ailments:

Dry needling (also referred to as trigger point dry needling) is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia, and connective tissue (Apta.org, 2016). Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle “trigger points”, fascia, tendons and ligaments, etc.) resulting in pain relief.

Dry Needling can provide relief for a variety of musculoskeletal problems including, but not limited to:

  • Acute/Chronic injuries
