Dry Needling

Dry Needling (DN), also known as intramuscular Manual Therapy (IMT) and Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN), is a procedure that uses threadlike needles to help relieve muscle pain. This is not acupuncture.

How it works

DN relaxes muscle spasms by deactivating trigger points in muscles and the connective tissue that surrounds them. Patients typically report immediate pain relief that can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks, allowing normal muscle function to be restored.

It is not uncommon for the treatment to produce soreness that could last several days. However, the relief experienced often far outweighs any discomfort.
