Female doing acup in low back-cropDry Needling involves inserting a needle (the same kind of needle used for Acupuncture) into the body and the needle is then moved back and forth through the tissues to effect a release of the muscle spasm.

Research has proven that trigger points occur due to a restriction of circulation that causes increased chemical concentration around the trigger point. Dry needling breaks up the muscle spasm around the trigger point, restores normal micro-circulation and decreases chemical irritant concentration. Most importantly, dry needling removes the pain of trigger points.
