Dry needling is not the same as acupuncture, although hair-thin needles are used in both types of treatment. Dry needling is used when you have a painful trigger point in the body. Trigger points are a tight band of muscle constricted and the blood flow has been diminished to the area. Dry needling can reach areas of soft tissue that a practitioner cannot reach by hand. When you see a chiropractor for the pain, it is common to receive dry needling as part of your overall care.
Dry needling can help reduce pain and soreness. Addresses trigger points, tender points, muscle spasms, chronic muscle tightness, and chronic scar tissue. Therapeutic dry needling promotes healing. Dry needling is not acupuncture. No medicine is involved.
