Dry Needling

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique in which thin monofilament needles are injected into myofascial trigger positions (painful knots in tissues), tendons, ligaments, and nearby nerves in order to facilitate a healing method in chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions. Dry needling is not acupuncture or Oriental Medicine; that is, it does not have the intention of changing the course of energy (“Qi”) along with old Chinese meridians for the treatment of conditions. In fact, dry needling is a new, science-based intervention for the way and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as neck strain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, headaches, knee injury, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, or low-back back.
