Cuyuna Regional Medical Center has expanded its services to include Dry Needling which uses thin needles to trigger multiple responses in the body to decrease pain, inflammation and promote healing and tissue remodeling in problematic areas. Dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip and knee pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, TMJ, low-back pain, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and more.

A member of CRMC’s Rehabilitation staff since 2015, Morlock holds a Doctorate of Physical Therapy Degree from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
