Dry Needling (Evidence-Based Acupuncture)

Dry needling is an evidence-based form of acupunture that Dr. Lauer uses as needed for pain management. Dry needling works in several different ways including:

Nerves: Needling stimulates nerves in the body, which results in an increase of endorphins in the central nervous system. The term endorphin is the combination of the words endogenous and morphine, so the endorphins work to reduce perception of pain by an individual. This helps the patient relax and speeds up the healing process.*

Muscles: When a needle is inserted into a tight muscle it breaks up muscle fibers, resulting in relaxation of the tissues around the needle. The needle also contacts sensory nerves that also contribute to muscle relaxation.*

Inflammation: After an injury, our body uses inflammation to help heal the injured area. But too often, the inflammation process becomes uncontrollable, spreading, swelling and resulting in heat, pain and loss of function of the tissues involved. This ultimitaly slows the healing process. Needling limits the injury and destruction of tissue, and triggers a controllable acute inflammation in the body that opens new blood vessels, which become active to engulf and digest invaders resulting from the destruction chronic inflammation. Usually when several needles are inserted into inflamed tissues, swelling, inflammation and pain will subside and healing will be accelerated.*

Testimonials

I started seeing Dr. Lauer about 2 years ago. The physical demands of playing college volleyball were causing pain in mainly my back, shoulders and neck since volleyball is predominately an overhead sport. I started to see Dr. Lauer about once a week, and I would always look forward to my appointment because of the release of tension in my body after an adjustment. At the time I first started going to Dr. Lauer, I was getting work done at a TMJ clinic to correct my jaw placement and experiencing a minor shoulder injury. Positive results from the adjustments appeared right away, so the appointments became a regular part of my routine to maintain my body’s physical strength.

Being able to see Dr. Lauer on a regular basis really helped the process in both areas and I am very thankful for his help. I saw results on and off the court. I started sleeping better and my headaches decreased dramatically. I still continue to see Dr. Lauer, but not as regularly since my volleyball career has finished. Dr. Lauer and the rest of his staff are always very friendly and helpful, which made my visits that much more enjoyable!

Meet the Doctor

Meet Dr. David Lauer When the emergency room nurse told me to see a chiropractor, I thought she was nuts! I told her I had "real" pain and needed a "real" doctor. Well, I guess we know the rest of that story. Read More
