Dry needling is a therapeutic technique gaining popularity in the field of physical therapy and pain management. It involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific trigger points or tight muscle bands, with the aim of relieving pain and improving musculoskeletal function. Unlike acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and focuses on balancing the body's energy flow, dry needling is firmly grounded in Western medicine and neuroscience.
During a dry needling session, a trained practitioner locates the trigger points or areas of muscle tension causing pain and dysfunction. The insertion of the needles into these points stimulates the release of muscle knots and tension, often resulting in immediate relief. Dry needling is commonly used to treat conditions such as muscle strains, sports injuries, chronic pain, and even conditions like fibromyalgia and tension headaches. It can help restore normal muscle function, improve range of motion, and reduce pain, making it a valuable adjunct to physical therapy and rehabilitation programs for individuals seeking non-invasive, drug-free pain relief and improved physical performance.
