Dry needling is a proven, effective solution to heal and restore soft tissues. While many of us run from the term “needling,” this treatment is actually painless, safe, and accessible. The word dry is used because the needles have no fluid on them (like in the case of getting a vaccine). The purpose of dry needling is to treat precise trigger points.
Trigger points are found in the following:
- Achilles tendon
- And more
We’re often asked the difference between acupuncture and dry needling; in simple terms, acupuncture is centered around the flow of energy or Qi, while dry needling is essentially the sports version of that with a focus on muscle work.
This therapy utilizes ultra-thin needles in localized areas of the skin where soft tissues are injured, turning the tissues on and off through stimulation.
