Dry Needling

Moreau Physical Therapy is currently performing Dry Needling and having successful patient outcomes

Dry needling is a treatment for relieving muscular tightness, spasm and pain which commonly follows injuries, degenerative processes, stress and overuse of the muscles.Muscular tightness and spasm can cause compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This may cause peripheral diagnoses such as carpel tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain. Small, thin needles are inserted into painful areas of muscles known as trigger points.  Then skilled movement of the needle elicits relaxation and pain relief of the trigger points. Because the needles are so thin, the patient often does not even feel the needle being inserted. The patient typically notices immediate increased flexibility of the muscle and a decrease in symptoms.

 Common diagnoses that are treated with dry needling include sports related muscle strains and spasms, chronic pain, fibromyalgia and headaches.  Trigger point dry needling is used in conjunction with other therapeutic interventions to give our patients complete physical therapy care and the best outcomes.

Dry Needling Testimonials:

"I heard of dry needling at the marathon expo the day before the Louisiana Marathon where Moreau Physical Therapy was the main physical therapy sponsor. I was a little wary of the needles, but I was willing to try anything to alleviate my pain and make my recovery time shorter. When I first stepped in the office my nervousness subsided because of the extremely friendly staff. Ryan explained the process of dry needling in depth, and I had my first treatment. Dry needling has changed my life! I know that is a strong statement, but this treatment did more for me than I ever expected."  Marci H


“At first I was unsure about the dry needling, but after getting immediate results after the first time of having it done on my neck I was so grateful for it.  Just about 4 or 5 sessions of it on my neck and back along with the exercises, I was pain free! I would definitely recommend it to anyone and I am so thankful and appreciative of everyone at Moreau Physical Therapy for helping me and taking such good care of me.”  Amanda M.


“I received dry needling at the Baton Rouge location and felt immediate relief in my low back.  It was awesome! I can now move better and perform all of my job duties without pain. I would recommend this type of treatment to anyone. “Jesse P
