DRY NEEDLING


DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling (Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling) is the use of either solid filiform needles (acupuncture needles) or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. 

The goal of dry needling is to achieve a local twitch response where the needle is inserted to release tension and pain.

Dry needling can help with acute/chronic injuries, headaches, neck/back pain, tendinitis, muscle spasms, sciatica, hip/knee pain, muscle strains, fibromyalgia, tennis/golfer’s elbow, overuse injuries, and much more!

Research supports the use of dry needling to improve pain control, reduce muscle tension, and the normalizing of dysfunctions of the motor end plates (the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles).
