Dry Needling:
A New Weapon to Fight Pain

“Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofacial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. Dry needling (DN) is a technique used to treat… and reduce or restore impairments of the body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.” (American Physical Therapy Association 2013)

Dry needling is an adjunct treatment used by selected physical therapists to treat some of the underlying causes of pain. This treatment is not acupuncture. Modern dry needling is based on Western neuroanatomy and modern scientific study of the muscles and nervous system. This modality can only be done by trained clinicians.

If you are interested in seeing if dry needling is right for you ask your Rehab Associates physical therapist
