He incorporates various acupuncture techniques, including INMAS and Battlefield Acupuncture, to address numerous conditions, from musculoskeletal pain to allergies, headaches, and infertility.

Additionally, Dr. Wilson is highly skilled in the practice of dry needling, a technique that targets myofascial trigger points to relieve myofascial pain and restore normal movement patterns.

Pain affects how your body moves. It is thought that dry needling changes the way the brain and muscles talk to each other to let the system return to a more normal movement pattern.


Through extensive training and clinical experience in Low-Level Laser Therapy, Dr. Wilson effectively treats acute and chronic pain, accelerating the healing and rehabilitation process. This non-invasive therapy saves patients time and effort by reducing the number of clinical visits required while achieving excellent results.
