Still Unsure About Needles?

Leave a comment  

These are the thinnest needles you have ever seen! When using dry needling to alleviate your pain, Don Ostdiek, PT, DPT, uses very thin needles.  Many times patients cannot feel them when they first enter the skin.  Many patients feel the needle briefly, only after the therapist hits a trigger point, which is how you experience relief.  Give it a try today!

Dry Needling Works!

Dry needling is an efficient way to treat pain. A recent patient, Angela, said, “I am beyond impressed with the care provided by Physical Therapy Works. Three weeks of PT on my shoulder and arm are working again. Thanks, Sarah and Donald.”  You do not have to live in pain.  Schedule an appointment at Physical Therapy Works for dry needling.

We love helping patients!

From Roger, a patient recently discharged…Don—Thanks for greatly helping me with my chronic TMJ and chronic low back pain.  Both conditions were affecting my daily life.  I felt they would be something I would have to just live with forever.  But after several months of your treatments and suggested home exercises, both conditions are now nearly gone.  I greatly appreciate what you have done for me.

You’re welcome, Roger!  Our goal is to discharge patients as efficiently as possible.

I did something one day to my back and I was in a lot of pain. I went to my chiropractor and massage therapist. After several sessions I was not getting any results. I was referred to Don and it was amazing. He got me back to myself. Plus, he taught me how to PREVENT this from happening again with exercises. I can’t believe what a difference he made!! He also helped my with my headaches. I highly recommend him!!!

Don received the following note from a recent patient.  We love to help people feel better!

Don, You have superpowers! I was still limping when I left your office Friday. Went to dinner with my son and his wife  and was still hobbling a little but by the time we got home, I decided not to take the meds and had a great night sleep. No pain whatsoever during the night. Woke up with absolutely no pain at all and could not believe it. Felt great on Saturday but decided not to push it. I actually worked out on my elliptical on Sunday and felt great and still do. I cannot believe what great work you did on me. I am also convinced that you diagnosed the cause of the problem as well. I don’t think I’ll need any more appointments on this issue and hopefully no others in the future but if I do need help I know who to call now.
