Dry needling can be used to treat muscular pain and dysfunction in conjunction with other treatment. Dry needling is effective in relaxing muscles or ‘trigger points’ and reducing muscular pain. The technique uses tiny needles which are placed into the effected muscles without injecting any substance.
The technique is based on Western science, but uses the same needles as those used in acupuncture, however should not be confused with the Chinese Medicine technique.
The technique in conjunction with other therapies can be an excellent way to relieve pain and assist in the healing process.
