What is Dry Needling (DN)?
Dry needling is a treatment used by a trained Physical Therapist to help treat trigger points. The term “dry” refers to no medication or solution being used in conjunction with the “needling”, hence it is not an injection. So what are trigger points? They are tight bands or “knots” in your muscles that can limit movement as well as cause pain and dysfunction. It targets these trigger points using small monofilament needles similar to those used in acupuncture. The small needle is used to deactivate the trigger points to decrease pain and restore mobility and function. This targeting of muscle tension is what differentiates dry needling from acupuncture. It can be used for a variety of ailments including neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain and more. Our outcomes with dry needling are amazing!
