Dry Needling – also known as Mysofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling – includes placing small needles into trigger points in muscles with the goal of easing muscle tension and pain. Dry Needling can be effective in treating acute and chronic pain, as part of rehabilitation from injury, and can even be used in pain and injury prevention. Dry Needling offers few side effects. The treatment is performed by a physical therapist specially trained in the technique. For many, Dry Needling offers dramatic and lasting pain relief after only a few treatments.
