Acupuncture and Dry Needling
At BSP we use multiple tools to get you out of pain and functioning better faster! We are excited to offer Acupuncture and Dry Needling. Both dry needling and acupuncture involve the insertion of thin needles into certain parts of the body, but they are not the same.
Acupuncture is based on ancient Chinese medicine with the idea of balance and restoring proper flow of energy throughout the body. This is accomplished by inserting needles along meridian lines that represent the body’s organs. This is an effective way to treat internal ailments, including digestive problems, insomnia, stress and chronic pain.
Dry needling is based on modern Western medicine. This treatment was developed in the 1980s, and during treatment, needles are inserted into trigger points, or tender bands of muscle located within larger muscles.
When needles are inserted into trigger points, they elicit a response that release the trigger points and restore normal function. Dry needling is used to treat cases of chronic and acute pain without the use of medication, surgical procedures, etc.
Here at Bayside Spine we use a combination of therapies to help you perform your best. We offer Moist Heat, which improves nerve conductivity and relaxes spastic muscles, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), which can be used to aid in muscle relaxation, recovery, and strength, and Ultrasound therapy, which has been shown to increase blood flow and in turn accelerates healing rate.
We also use therapeutic and performance based rehabilitation techniques including stretches, exercises, and proprioceptive activities. This will allow you to prevent injury and deliver optimal performance.
We employ a wide array of very effective hands on soft tissue therapies that focus on an injury as well as the surrounding areas. We utilize cupping therapy, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), and Muscle Release Technique to break up scar tissue, increase strength of tendons and ligaments, and reduce fascial restrictions. This results in superior movement, increased joint movement, a decrease in pain and discomfort, and better performance.
We are proud to offer the same cutting edge technology that all of your favorite professional athletes use to stay in the game and perform their best. We deploy NormaTec recovery boots and Hypervolt percussive therapy to reduce muscle fatigue after exercise, decrease inflammation, and increase range of motion.
Here at Bayside Spine we also offer Functional Taping for Musculoskeletal Injuries (FTMI). This can be applied to increase proprioception, enhance neuromuscular facilitation, and help with lymphatic drainage.
