Dry Needling

Dry Needing is used to treat muscle pain. A filament needle is inserted into a trigger point in the muscle in which the pain is occurring. Most patients do not feel the needle enter the skin but discomfort can vary between patients. For painful muscles, patients may feel a cramping sensation. Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects.
