Dry needling is used by physical therapists to treat pain and movement impairments. Dry needling is a technique that uses an accupunture needle and is aimed at releasing trigger points.
Trigger points are taut bands in the muscle that can cause local pain or refer pain to close-by areas in the body.
When appropriate, your physical therapist can use dry needling to release these trigger points with the goal of decreased pain and/or increased mobility.
