Flatten the curve - COVID-19

After much careful consideration, I have decided to close my office until at least April 6th. I may need to stay closed longer, but I will re-asses and adapt as needed. As many of you know, I have been quite concerned about SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 / Coronavirus after seeing its effects in China and its spread throughout the world. It is clear that we have not contained nor mitigated it well up to this point, and we can only expect this problem to grow unless each of us takes strong actions right now to stop the spread.

This is not a decision I take lightly. I love what I do, and I know many of you depend on my services for the relief of serious conditions that affect your quality of life. While I am dedicated to being of service, I believe the best way for me to be of service in light of this pandemic is to do my part to stop the spread, and the best way to do that is social distancing.

There is evidence that the virus can remain in the air for up to 3 hours after an infected person has left, and that it can be spread while an infected person shows no symptoms. Taking these two features of the virus together, it is clear that I cannot guarantee absence of transmission in my office, despite my best efforts. All the hand washing and surface disinfecting in the world will not stop the spread of an airborne virus that can be transmitted by asymptomatic individuals. I am unwilling to risk the health and safety of you, my valued patients.

The reasons I am choosing to close my clinic at this time are the same reasons I would highly advise you to practice social distancing to an extreme degree starting right now. Not only for your own safety, but the safety of others. Here's a great resource for more on the current importance of social distancing: . This closure is part of my effort to lead by example.

Thank you all for your support over the years it is truly a joy to be of service to you. I look forward to getting back as soon as possible. These guidelines are intended to help Flatten the Curve with the COVID19 outbreak, to help limit spread and reduce the load on hospitals and other healthcare.

[03/13/20]   During this time of concern over the spread of the Coronavirus, all of us at Eastwind are working to keep our clients as healthy as possible. We have always devoted ourselves to maintaining a clean and healthy environment, and of course, we are continuing to do so. We have always wiped down door handles, desk surfaces, and other areas of our space with antibacterial substances. Now we are doing this several times a day in order to assure renewed cleanliness. Further, we are all committed to frequent hand washing, and we ask that you also commit to this practice as a way of maintaining your own health.

In order to continue to serve your needs, we ask that if you are ill, or if you have been exposed to the Coronavirus, you will stay home and rest and recover rather than coming into our public space.

With Gratitude from All of Us at Eastwind 10/02/2019

[09/26/19]   We love working with athletes helping them overcome physical obstacles and breaking through new barriers. Check out what Justin has to say about our treatments!

"Patrick helps me stay in top form for my athletic endeavors. As a runner and athlete I get a lot of aches and pains and overly tight muscles. I recently had Patrick work on my hip which had been giving me issues for a few weeks. He did some dry needling and within a few days my hip was back to normal and I was able to do better than expected at my race the following weekend. Patrick has also helped me with other sports related injuries with great success. I certainly recommend Patrick for any athlete looking to decrease recovery time and reduce muscle pain and tightness." 09/24/2019

Take a look at what people are saying about their experiences with us!

“Patrick made chronic pain in my neck and shoulder literally disappear overnight! His expertise in the area of trigger point therapy using dry needling technique is more helpful than any other technique I've tried for this issue, and I have tried many. I highly recommend him for his ability, his professionalism, his caring, and his integrity.” C.M. Iowa City

Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute

Luke, an African lion at the Smithsonian's National Zoo got help with his limp using electro acupuncture and dry needling. Acupuncture can help you too... Schedule your appointment today!

Visitors to the Great Cats exhibit may have noticed that our 12-year-old African lion, Luke, has had an on-again, off-again limp. Over the past year, our animal care team has been closely monitoring him for mobility issues in his right forelimb. A CT scan revealed a lesion on Luke’s spine. However, staff elected not to perform surgery due to significant complications that could arise related to post-surgical care. To help improve his mobility, vets prescribed anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications. As part of his treatment, our veterinary team is performing deep tissue laser therapy and electro- and dry-needle-acupuncture on the affected areas. We’re happy to share that Luke is showing good progress and has resumed walking on all four limbs. While we don’t know for how long the treatment will be effective, our animal care team will continue to monitor Luke and keep him comfortable. Visit Luke and our African lion pride at our Great Cats exhibit. 05/24/2017

NAMTPT - Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy - What is it?

Trigger points in muscle and other connective tissues are commonly overlooked as a cause of chronic and acute pain and dysfunction. When muscles and/or fascia become too tense from overuse or injury they can cause pain, numbness, tingling, limited range of motion of joints, even dizziness, nausea, and headaches. Sometimes the muscle or fascia that is causing the pain or dysfunction is located in another area of the body from where the problem is perceived to be. For example a trigger point in a neck muscle can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the arm and hand even when the person feels no pain or stiffness in the neck.

Frequently referred to as the “orphan organ” as no medical field claims the muscular system and its referred pain and dysfunction as their specialty. Myofascial trigger points can go undiagnosed and untreated for years or unfortunately, a lifetime, causing untold amounts of needless pain and suffering.

Patrick Yoerger L.Ac. L.M.T. is an Associate Professional member of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists and an expert at identifying an treating myofascial pain and dysfunction. Patrick regularly attends trainings and conferences focused specifically on myofascial pain and dysfunction. Patrick recently attended the 2nd foundations course of the Janet G. Travell, MD Seminar Series with Myopain Seminars which focuses on trigger point dry needling of myofascial trigger points.

For more information on myofascial trigger point therapy and to find a qualified therapist check out the webpage of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists Active myofascial trigger points in the muscles of the shoulder neck and face are a common source of headaches. In many instances the headache has the features of so-called tension headache, but there is increasing acceptance that myofascial trigger points may initiate classical migraine headaches…


I had a great three day weekend studying and practicing myofascial trigger point Dry Needling with Dr. Wijtmas from Myopain Seminars!

Trigger Point Therapy

Shoulder arthritis is more common than you probably think, especially in the over 50 age group. Arthritis is a growing problem as we live longer and more active lives. In fact, the most recent NHI survey in the USA found that over 60 million Americans had been diagnosed with some form of arthritis.

Whilst there is no direct cure for shoulder arthritis, manual therapy, and trigger point therapy in particular, can often help the client stay more active, and help make the symptoms way more manageable.
