Patients suffering from any kind of pain, stiffness, soreness, limited ROM, tight muscles, or to prevent injury are considered as candidates for Dry Needling Therapy.

Yes! Dry Needling is used post operatively everyday across the world. It actually helps you to heal faster. Studies show acupuncture and dry needling can speed up healing by 5 times.

Is Dry Needling Covered By Insurance?

Insurance companies only like to cover treatments that don’t actually fix the problem, so O3 Regenerative Therapy™ or any other regenerative injection procedure is not covered by any insurance. The good news is, that you are the one in charge of what procedures you get, not an insurance company.

Then, if you are a good candidate for our clinic, she will formulate a treatment plan tailored specifically to you.
