Dry needling is a skilled intervention performed by a healthcare professional. It is the insertion of a fine filiform needle into the body to stimulate a healing response in the presence of neuromusculoskeletal issues and movement dysfunction.
Simple muscle tightness, strains and sprains, an overworked body needing recovery, post-injury muscle activation, swelling reduction and pain modulation are all clinical examples for the use of dry needling.
Dry needling is different from acupuncture in its philosophies. In our office, we utilizes the insertion of needles, electrical stimulation and other techniques to create that controlled healing response.
