Dry Needling is the use of thin acupuncture type needles for the treatment of muscle pain. The needles are used to target the trigger point of the problem muscle, this is known as the myofascial trigger point and is often described as a muscle 'knot' which contributes to muscle pain and dysfunction.
The needle is gently inserted into the skin directly at this point and often a local twitch response is experienced. This is a good sign as it means the trigger point has been stimulated, jump starting the muscle and nerve supply and increasing blood flow to the area which helps relax the muscle.
After treatment the treated area will feel much softer and the person will feel looser.
