Dr. Troy combines the conventional Western model of therapy with traditional Oriental principles of acupuncture and bridges the gaps between pain management, improved muscle tone and improved mobility which leads to faster recovery and improved performance.
These therapies are an effective way to treat muscular tension, spasm and pain.
Dr. Troy utilizes acupuncture solid filament needles inserted through the skin and into the muscle to release painful myofascial trigger points. Needling results in the deepest tissue release allowing for improvements in movement and pain. It is considered “Dry” Needling because there is no solution injected as with a hypodermic needle. WHAT TYPES OF CONDITIONS CAN THIS THERAPY ASSIST?
Myofascial cupping therapy. Uses mechanical DECOMPRESSION to create space in the tissues, thus improving interlayer fascial gliding and assisting with blood and lymph flow. Additionally, it is believed that application can induce a neurochemical response while also having a neurosensory effect, both of which can help to mitigate pain and improve movement. Bruising is NOT necessary in order for treatment to ‘work’, although a histamine response (skin redness) may occur as a byproduct of the treatment and should generally go away within minutes to hours.
