Dry Needling (DN) is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm. An injury or chronic pain can lead to “knots,” or trigger points, in the muscle, which may lead to pain or secondary problems.
DN treatment involves reducing or eliminating these trigger points by inserting a thin filament needle into the affected muscle. This will typically cause muscle relaxation, alleviating pain and dysfunction. Many patients experience a dramatic and often times immediate relief in their symptoms.
