Dry needling is a medical treatment which uses thin needles (without medication) to alleviate muscle spasms associated with trigger points. Trigger points are painful points, usually felt as a taut band in the muscle. This phenomenon is caused by muscle over-use, excessive muscle loading/contraction, and stress.
When a needle is inserted into a trigger point, the tight muscle fibers relax whilst being nourished with oxygen and nutrients. Any additional acidic chemicals are flushed away in the process. By restoring the muscle’s ability to lengthen and shorten, dry needling assists with decreasing local muscular pain and improves function.
