Dry Needling


Dry needling involves the use of a thin monofilament needle that penetrates the skin and moves into the deep tissue. The goal behind a dry needling treatment is to assist with facilitating a healthy inflammatory response and mechanically reduce pain. Dry needling can be useful in treating a variety of conditions.

It is important to recognize that trigger point dry needling is only one kind of dry needling, though it is typically the main form utilized in a physical therapy treatment.
