Ultrasound Guided Dry Needling and Diagnostics


Precision Healing and Diagnosis with Ultrasound Guided Dry Needling


Dry needling involves the use of thin myofilament needles inserted into myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments and over nerves in order to facilitate a natural healing response from the body, which helps to decrease pain and improve healing and long-term functioning.  Dry needling is an evidence-based treatment intervention that is heavily supported by extensive research studies for the treatment of pain and dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system.


Dr. Roth is certified in dry needling techniques for the upper and lower extremity.  She specializes in electrotherapy dry needling, utilizing a low level microcurrent to further enhance the needle effect by promoting the release of important chemicals in the body involved in tissue healing and regeneration.  Dr. Roth is also trained to use ultrasound scanning to assists in ensuring that the need reaches the appropriate target tissue.


Additionally, Dr. Roth is able to utilize the diagnostic ultrasound to scan musculoskeletal structures and assess for tissue abnormality, such as assessing for the presence of myofascial trigger points, tendon or ligament tears or injuries, bursitis, or presences of tendinosis, which may then be treated with dry needling to help the injured tissues heal.


Whether you suffer from chronic pain or have experienced a recent accident and want immediate feedback on the extent of your injury, diagnostic ultrasound scanning is a safe, effective and quick alternative to a primary care visit or long waits for an MRI appointment.  Call our office at 571-261-9234 learn about pricing and to schedule your ultrasound scan appointment.
