Dry needling is a technique using acupuncture needles to treat trigger points within muscle tissue, ligaments or tendons. Trigger points are specific points of pain and tension within the muscles, ligaments or tendons. Dry needling is thought to work by increasing blood flow to the area being treated, causing a stretch to the connective tissue and stimulating a process of recovery tissue remodeling.
Dry needling is based on musculoskeletal anatomy, which is different from Tradition Chinese Medicine Acupuncture. Dry needling is used in conjunction with physiotherapy to reduce pain and promote healing and restoration of normal tissue function.
