Acupuncture & Dry Needling at O’Kane Chiropractic

person with acupuncture needles in backNatural health care isn’t a new idea. At O’Kane Chiropractic, we’ve invested in extensive training to offer our patients a wide range of healing therapies, including acupuncture and dry needling. We approach wellness from every angle, guiding your body toward better health so you can feel and function at your best.

This service is much gentler and easier than getting a shot. We use thin, delicate needles that cause very little pain when they go in.

The healing change that you’ll enjoy is worth any temporary discomfort you experience. Since we can insert needles one or two inches into affected tissues, this technique allows us to respond to deep issues we couldn’t access any other way.

Two Techniques for Natural Relief

We recommend acupuncture for a more holistic approach to healing. Dr. Brett or Dr. Samantha may talk to you about this technique if you have an internal disorder, anxiety, depression, or neuropathy, as it gives general, whole-body benefits.

Dry needling, on the other hand, is great for specific areas experiencing acute or chronic pain. This modern take on needling is best for issues like stiff muscles and joint problems.

Either approach works well with chiropractic care and is effective at targeting problems that massage therapy, muscle release, or joint mobility work can sometimes miss. This service is available for an additional fee.

Healing When Nothing Else Helps

Many patients with chronic low back pain that doesn’t respond to other techniques experience a sudden breakthrough after two or even three decades of pain when they agree to try acupuncture or dry needling. We’ve had several patients return after their first session, saying they haven’t slept that well in years!

While some patients experience immediate relief, others notice an improvement in symptoms after about two weeks of care.
