What is dry needling?
Aside from typical physical therapy techniques, there are other modern approaches to physical therapy to further help your condition. One of these techniques is called dry needling. Also known as trigger point dry needling or intramuscular manual therapy, this technique improves mobility and reduces pain, muscle tightness or tension, and muscle spasms. This is an intramuscular approach using acupuncture needles to target trigger points (an area of constriction or muscle tension) for faster results. It’s important to note that dry needling is typically used in conjunction with other physical therapy techniques and is rarely used on its own.
