Outstanding dry needling experience with Dr. Piersol! Megan made a very uncomfortable procedure pleasant with her unique blend of professionalism and humor! She had me back on my feet and back in crossfit gym in under a month. I highly recommend Dr. Piersol for any of your sports related rehabilitation needs

Before I came to Megan Piersol, I was a complete disaster. I was repeatedly getting injured. Even though I love running, at one point I just lost all hope that I was ever going to improve my condition. Megan performed dry needling on me-which really helped address my symptoms, gave me exercises that addressed the source of my problems, and also pointed me to resources to help me get better. I highly recommend her.
