Dry needling is a therapeutic technique used by healthcare professionals, typically physical therapists, chiropractors, or medical doctors, to treat musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles (similar to acupuncture needles) into specific trigger points or tight knots in muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other soft tissues. These trigger points are often associated with pain, tightness, or dysfunction in the affected area.
During dry needling, the healthcare provider carefully inserts the needles into the targeted areas, which may be painful or tender. The goal is to stimulate these trigger points to release tension and improve blood flow.
Dry needling is commonly used to address a range of musculoskeletal issues, including chronic pain, muscle spasms, tension headaches, myofascial pain syndrome, and sports-related injuries.
