Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Dry Needling

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Dry Needling

We offer both traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling (also known as sports acupuncture) at Van Ness Chiropractic.  Though traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling both use sterile needles, the methodology behind each treatment is different, as are the techniques and education behind them.  After a proper examination, we can discuss which option is best for you.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture – Barrington, IL

Acupuncture is a treatment that involves needle insertion through a person’s skin into specific points, based upon Chinese Medicine, that are meant to relieve pain and address certain health problems.

Dry Needling – Barrington, IL

Dry needling is a procedure where a needle is inserted into a muscle targeting myofascial trigger points.  A sterile acupuncture needle is inserted into the trigger point, causing an immediate “release” of the trigger point, reducing pain and muscle tension.  The needle is manipulated at various depths, while inserted, and at times the use of electrical stimulation is implemented. The goal of this treatment is to relieve pain and muscle spasms, improve sports performance and promote healing in the treated area.

Though the thought of needles is intimidating, traditional Chinese acupuncture and dry needling are low-risk techniques that can deliver amazing results.

I can't say enough about Dr. Jason Van Ness and the team at Van Ness Chiropractic! When people ask if I know a good Chiropractor in town, without hesitation, I recommend Van Ness Chiropractic. Not only for "fixing" what's broken, but for wellness maintenance, too. I see people in the office ranging from babies to elderly, athletes of all kinds, people who travel far and wide and make time, when in town, to visit Dr. Van Ness. Van Ness Chiropractic offers a vainly of services and is not limited to Chiropractic care. Besides my regular Chiropractic visits, I have taken advantage of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My quality of life is enriched by regular visits to Dr. Jason Van Ness and his team!Stop by and meet the team...you'll be thankful you did.

Dr.Van Ness has built himself a great place for health. I’ve been seeing him since he did a residency with Dr.Cox, late 1990s. As a legacy patient he has always kept me straight. He even came in on a weekend to assist my wife with an issue. His place isn’t just straightening crooked people. He treats young athletes to the “ole guys” equally. His center of health has a variety of therapists to get you the proper care you want.

I didn’t even know I had mild back problems until I came here. Very thorough and very friendly staff! I love the fact that it’s also a clean and safe place as they wipe surfaces often. Definitely recommend!
