What is Trigger Point Dry Needling?
Trigger point dry needling, commonly known as dry needling, works in conjunction with other treatments to help deactivate myofascial trigger points and reduce pain. This procedure is referred to as “dry” because the needles are solid. Commonly confused with acupuncture, dry needling is only for treating specific trigger points in a muscle. Dry needling involves the insertion of a needle into the skin and muscle at the trigger point. The needle is then pulled in and out of the trigger point to deactivate and release it. Sterile needles are used every time, along with the proper protective gear to keep you and your therapist safe. While dry needling is a procedure invasive to the skin, it is mostly painless. Some patients state a small shock feeling or cramping that lasts for a few seconds. Some soreness after the treatment is common.
