Dry needling is a modern, research-based technique where fine, sterilized needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments, scar tissue, or near nerves to stimulate a healing response. Inserting a needle into trigger points can cause favorable biochemical changes which assist in reducing pain. Stimulating a trigger point with a needle helps draw normal blood supply back to the area and release tension.
