I have been battling with chronic neck pain for the past 5 years. One year ago I had surgery on my neck thinking and hoping this would relieve my pain. Unfortunately, my symptoms did not resolve. I have been trying anything and everything to relieve my pain. I was referred to Mike for dry needle therapy and my life has sincerely changed since my appointments. After three 1-hour appointments I have no pain. I have been taking medication, and now I do not take anything. Mike has given me back my life with this therapy. He also showed me some stretching and other exercises to continue my therapy, but I have not been back.

“Last fall I injured my neck and after having an MRI I was told that I had 2 bulging discs in the lower part of my neck. I debated about the different treatments and decided on a new therapy called dry needling. At first I was apprehensive about this new treatment, but I had immediate relief after the first treatment and after 3 treatments was pain-free. I would do this again and am amazed at the results.”

“I have been a runner for approximatley the past 17 years. I used to run 8-10 miles everyday, which is now reduced to 6 miles a day several days a week. About 6 months ago I developed pain in my back, left hip, and hamstring area. I tried chiropractic and massage therapy but the symptoms did not resolve. I also was referred to physical therapy for ASTYM, which did not resolve the symptoms. A friend of mine mentioned trigger point relief after the first treatmentand also noticed an immediate improvement in my flexibility of my hamstrings in the exact spot that I was having trouble with. I was also having pain in an abdominal muscle that, which also responded positively to dry needling. I think dry needling is the best thing ever! I continue to run but stretch and perform strengthening exercises that Mike showed me to prevent trigger points from returning. I would recommend dry needling to anyone!”
