Dry Needling is a myofascial trigger point treatment intervention, performed by a physical therapist who has had additional training and has achieved certification in this method. Through this treatment an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle with the purpose of healing the trigger point, or "muscle knot." Dry Needling can effectively treat acute and chronic pain and the symptoms associated with it's presence. Most commonly, patients with myofascial trigger points also suffer from muscle tightness, restricted range of motion and movements and weakness, in addition to pain.
