What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is an incredibly effective technique that produces rapid improvement in muscle physiology and function. Small, hollow needles produce direct disruption of myofascial trigger and tender points, supporting chiropractic adjustments and addressing the muscular component of musculoskeletal issues. It physically disrupts tensions within involved tissues, eliminating myofascial pain effectively and quickly.


Myofascial trigger point dry needling requires a physical examination and diagnosis based on a Western understanding of anatomy, physiology and neurology. It does not use theories of meridians, energy, pulse points or tongue characteristics to determine why or where to place a needle. Acupuncture is a separate system of healing with its own ancient laws and philosophy; the tool is the only common element.
