Physiotherapists use dry needling with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion.
Dry needling has many benefits including improving pain control, reducing tension and improves the function and results of rehabilitation.
Dry needling is different to acupuncture.
Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine and is based around principles regarding the muscular and nervous system.
