What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a revolutionary form of therapy to treat myofascial pain and biomechanical dysfunction. Myofascial pain is the technical term for the pain caused by tight muscles. Dry needling goes by various names, some of which are trigger point therapy, intramuscular stimulation, and intramuscular manual therapy. The reason it’s called “dry” needling is because there is nothing being injected into the muscles. Acupuncture needles are used to pass through the skin and massage out the trigger point causing the pain you may be feeling.
