How does dry needling work?

Dry needling, contrary to popular belief, is not acupuncture. While the two therapies are similar in some ways, dry needling is based on western medical and research approaches.

This treatment simply creates an environment that encourages the body’s ability to heal while also alleviating pain. To relieve pain, reduce muscular tension, and increase movement, a sterilized needle is inserted between the skin and the damaged tendons, ligaments, or muscles.
