DRY NEEDLING

What is it?

Dry needling is a contemporary technique for the treatment and alleviation of chronic pain or discomfort. This technique involves a small, solid filament needle being inserted into a muscle contracture (painful knotted muscle) known as a trigger point.

Whether you’ve never heard of dry needling, or you’re eager to learn more, these FAQs should help you out.

While dry needling and acupuncture utilize similar needles, acupuncture focuses on balancing energy pathways throughout the body while dry needling focuses on specific trigger points to release tension.
Needles utilized contain no liquid and nothing is injected during the treatment.

Dry needling can assist with many common conditions, such as:

  • Neck/Back Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Tennis/Golfers Elbow
  • Headaches
  • Hip & Gluteal Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Sciatica
  • Muscular Strains/Ligament Sprains
  • Chronic Pain
The diameter of the needles used in dry needling is much thinner than those we are accustomed to for injections, or to draw blood. The thin diameter (almost hair-like) makes the procedure much easier and oftentimes you will hardly even feel the insertion.
Plan on around 20 minutes for a typical session.

Many patients feel an immediate reduction in pain and muscle tension. Muscle soreness (like a post-gym workout) can sometimes be present for 24-48 hours. Occasionally a small bruise may appear at an insertion point.
