Dry needling is a technique Physiotherapists use for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. The technique uses a “dry” needle, that has no medication or injection, which is inserted through the skin into specific areas of the muscle.
Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, includes trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy. Dry Needling involves a thin filiform needle that penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. The needle allows the Physiotherapist to target tissues that are not manually palpable.
We use dry needling with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Dry Needling can improve pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This treatment can be used to help speed up the patient’s return to active rehabilitation.
