What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a technique physical therapists use to treat pain and movement impairments. The physical therapist inserts a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, into areas of the muscle.
- Other terms used to describe dry needling include:
- Trigger point dry needling.
- Intramuscular manual therapy.
- Dry needling IS NOT acupuncture.
What is a Trigger Point?
A trigger point is a taut band of skeletal muscle within a larger muscle group. Trigger points can be tender to the touch. Touching a trigger point may refer pain to other parts of the body. Dry needling involves a thin filiform needle. The needle penetrates the skin and stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. The needle allows a physical therapist to target tissues they are not able to reach with their hands.
