What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a precise therapy where thin, sterile needles target muscular trigger points, easing neuromuscular pain and improving movement. This technique focuses on releasing tension and knots within the muscles to provide relief and enhance muscle relaxation. Typically, the procedure is comfortable and offers a relaxing experience to patients.

Dry needling is a flexible treatment option, well-suited for a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

Chronic Pain Management

Sports-Related Muscle Strains

Joint Disorders

Post-Surgery Rehabilitation


Migraine and Tension-Type Headaches

Myofascial Pain Syndrome

& more!

Types Of Dry Needling We Offer

Our Smithtown clinic specializes in a range of dry needling techniques, including:

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)

The practitioners place the needle directly into the trigger point for immediate release and pain relief.

Superficial Dry Needling (SDN)

The practitioner inserts the needle superficially into the skin, right above the trigger point. This gentle, surface-level needling activates pain relief pathways in the nervous system and triggers the reflex analgesic mechanisms of the brain or spinal cord.

Dr. G and his entire staff are absolutely amazing! Back in May I was desperate for answers about my 15yo son who was having major pains in his foot. My son plays soccer and runs Track and he couldn’t run at all without having a pain level of 10. I had already brought him to two orthopedics, a podiatrist, a chiropractor and gotten MRIs and X-rays and nobody could give us any answers. Over 6 weeks went by and then I finally tried out acupuncture with Dr. G! During his assessment he knew immediately what was wrong with my son! He is so beyond knowledgeable and within 1 treatment my son felt a ton of relief and after 3 treatments my son was back on the track and soccer field! After 5 treatments he was completely healed with a pain level of 0! And absolutely no issues with his foot since!! My son also has hip pain that comes and goes for the last few years - we went back to Dr. G when his hip started acting up again and the miracle worker did it again! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. G and his incredible staff to everyone!

I came to Dr. Gordon with so many issues and not much hope of getting better. Just in the short time I’ve been there, I’ve had so much less pain and more mobility in both hands and arms. He’s very knowledgeable at what he does and you can tell that he really wants to help people feel better. Every time I leave the office I feel rejuvenated and in such a good mood. Overall it’s a great place, also due to the fact that Dr. Gordon and nurse Jen are so personable and easy to talk too. They make me feel so safe and comfortable. 5 stars all around ????

Dr. Gordon and his staff are personable, respectful and professional. Everyone goes above and beyond. The office is clean and the equipment is state of the art! It really has been a blessing coming to receive acupuncture and the other therapies offered. I have never felt better and I honestly didn’t think I ever would. But this place has given me my life back! Thank you!

I can't say enough about Dr. Gordon and his exceptional team, the attention and care they give to each patient is amazing. I have seen Dr. Gordon for back pain, knee issue and most recently foot pain and I have to say every single time I visit the very next day I'm back to resuming my very active lifestyle. I'm so grateful and happy I found this office.

One week ago I walked into Dr. Anthony Gordon’s office in Smithtown with chronic low back pain, bilateral hip pain, tingling along my left thigh, right knee pain and left shoulder pain. All of which was limiting my active lifestyle of going to the gym, my daily 2.5 mile walk and participation in my beloved zumba class. After one treatment I found myself standing straighter with decreased back, hip and knee pain and no tingling to my left thigh. I was also able to walk 1.5 miles pain free two days later. Now with three treatments completed I will say that each visit is bringing me closer to fully resuming my active lifestyle. I am grateful for the attention Dr. Gordon gives towards my concerns and appreciate his professionalism and expertise in the administration of various acupuncture techniques for pain relief. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon as he spends time in connecting with the patient by listening and then giving a thorough explanation of his treatment plan. I have already referred him to a friend and find myself telling everyone about the great care I have received.
