I can honestly say that I never thought I could feel any better with the back pain that I have consistently had over the last 5 years. A completely different approach to what traditional chiropractic care looks like and it worked!! Highly recommend to anyone experiencing long term pain !!

In dry needling, we use filiform needles to treat trigger points in your muscles. We’ll then leave them for 10 to 30 minutes, making dry needling therapy a quick treatment. Filiform needles stimulate myofascial trigger points, muscle tissues, and connective tissues. Furthermore, we insert these needles into deeper muscles.
The dry needling technique gives you several benefits. For one, it can ease tense, painful muscles and treat resulting cramps. Dry needling might help you become more flexible, as well. Plus, this therapy may lead to better pain control. It also targets inactive motor end plates for faster healing.

I would enthusiastically recommend the LifeClinic to anyone who wants to feel better!!!
The doctors here go above and beyond their duty to not only make you feel better but to function better in every aspect of your life. Each of my visits have given me more mobility and a better ability to not only train but enjoy it again.
