How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry Needling involves inserting an acupuncture needle into a trigger point. A trigger point consists of multiple contractions within a muscle belly forming a knot. They are often tender and feel painful when pressed or squeezed. These trigger points are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.

When a needle is inserted into muscle tissue, there is an influx of blood to the region.  Blood carries all the nutrients which injured tissue needs to repair.  The introduction of a needle into tight tissue [ironically] also helps relax tight tissue.

Take Control of Your Injury Today

Generally, needle insertion is not felt, but the local twitch response may provoke a very brief pain response. This has been described as an electric shock or a cramping sensation.
