Dry Needling

needling

Dry Needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions.

Dry Needling differs from Acupuncture in that dry needling’s purpose is not to alter the flow of energy (“Qi”) along traditional Chinese meridians for the treatment of diseases. Rather, dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions.
