Dry needling is a technique used by some physical therapists to relieve pain and muscle tension. It involves inserting thin, solid needles into specific points in the muscles, known as trigger points, to stimulate a healing response and reduce pain.
Dry needling is based on Western medicine principles and targets specific muscular trigger points that are causing pain or dysfunction.
Dry needling can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and headaches. It is often used in combination with other physical therapy techniques, such as stretching and exercise, to provide more complete pain relief and improved function.
