Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a treatment that healthcare providers use for pain and movement issues associated with myofascial trigger points. With this technique, a provider inserts thin needles into or near your trigger points. The needles stimulate your muscles, which causes them to contract or twitch. This helps relieve pain and improve your range of motion.

Dry needling is most often performed by physical and sports injury therapists. There is no requirement for extensive training. And no regulatory agency controls training, licensing, or supervision for the procedure.
