Although dry needling has been around for several years, it’s recently surging in popularity. So what is it? How is it done? Dry Needling involves inserting a small needling into a muscle in the region of a “trigger point.” The goal of Dry Needling is to generate a local twitch response from that area to release muscle tension and pain. Dry needling is an effective treatment for both chronic and acute pain with very few side effects.
