Dry Needling

What is Dry Needling?

Dry Needling involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle or group of muscles in order to release shortened bands of muscles and decrease trigger point activity. At times electrical stimulation may be applied to the needle(s) to provide a stimulus to the muscle and neuromuscular junction. This can help resolve pain, decrease muscle tension and promote healing.
