Dry needling is a modern technique which can be used as a treatment of muscular pain and myofascial dysfunction. During dry needling, a practitioner inserts several fine filiform needles into your skin for a short period of time, focusing on trigger points in your muscle and tissue, without injecting any substance. The term ‘dry’ simply references that the needles do not inject any fluid into the body. Also known as intramuscular stimulation, dry needling practitioners say that the needle can help to release knots and relieve any muscular pain or spasms.
