Dry Needling is growing in popularity
Dry needling is a modern treatment designed to ease muscular pain and stiffness. In addition, easing trigger points may improve flexibility and increase range of motion. It is most often used to treat sports injuries, muscle pain and fibromyalgia pain.
Dry Needling practitioners insert several filiform needles (fine, short, stainless steel) into "trigger points" in your muscle or tissue. These points are areas of knotted or hard muscle. The needles will remain in your skin for a short period of time. This helps release the knot or relieve any muscle pain or spams.
