Dry Needling

What is dry needling?

Dry needling is often confused with acupuncture; however, they are very different techniques. Dry needling focuses on reducing pain and accelerating healing through a deep understanding of the relationships between our bodies and our central nervous system. Specifically, dry needling is another form of soft tissue mobilization that can help reduce inflammation, decrease muscle tension, and ultimately relieve pain.

How dry needling works

Dry needling uses a very thin needle to stimulate trigger points in connective tissue. The goal of dry needling is to release tension in tight muscle bands associated with trigger points that are causing pain. Trigger points can make it painful to perform everyday activities and often radiate pain to other areas of the body. Dry needling focuses on stimulating those trigger points, which has been shown to reduce pain and speed up your recovery process.
