Dry Needling

Dry needling at New Life Chiropractic in Virginia Beach!

What is dry needling?

Dry needling is rapidly becoming the number one treatment for chronic muscular pain. Dry needling can be effectively  used for tendinitis, arthritis, post sprain/strain, trigger points and any other pain syndromes. We have also had great success in treating radiating pain like sciatica or brachial (arm) pain.  The origin of needling is attributed to Dr. Janet Travell in the 1960’s. Dr Travells most famous patient President John F Kennedy, was suffering from low back pain following a failed surgery. She would routinely treat him with steroid injections. When these steroid  injections proved to have negative side effects, she substituted saline in the injections which had a good pain relieving outcome. She later used needles with no injection (dry) and had similar results.

Common Conditions Treated

Conditions treated at New Life Chiropractic

Common Conditions Treated at New Life Chiropractic in Virginia Beach.

Chiropractic was originally created as an alternative method of health care to treat a wide variety of conditions. Today we are more know for simply treating pain of the spine and extremities. This being said I can’t tell you how many times I have treated a patient for mid back pain and they tell me the reflux they’ve had for years is now gone. Do to the fact that our body is controlled by the nervous system and the nerves originate from the spine, it is not surprising to the chiropractor that the body functions better when the spine is at its best. Do chiropractors treat high blood pressure, menieres, diabetes, celiacs, ADHD, cholic, ect… no, but we correct the nervous system which allows the body to work at its best and the rest takes care of itself. The list of condition and symptoms listed below are only the most common, not all.

Chiropractic Maintenance

Chiropractic Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living

Chiropractic maintenance

Now that you have become pain free and your joints have full mobility it is time for chiropractic maintenance care.  A common complaint of chiropractic care is that once you start you have to continue forever. I used to argue this. Now I would enthusiastically tell you its true. You get very used to feeling great and you don’t want to let that go. The primary reason we need to continue care is because we continue doing the things that caused the pain in the first place. Its kind of like eating candy all day and not brushing your teeth, eventually you are going to have problems.
