DRY NEEDLING THERAPY
What is it?
Dry Needling (DN) Therapy is a highly effective treatment for a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions. Dry Needling is used for the treatment of pain, disability and dysfunction. It is effective for resolving soft tissue dysfunction, such as inflammation, microcirculation disruption, edema, tendinitis, muscular contractures and trigger points, tissue adhesions, and various other nueromusculoskeletal conditions.
What is it not?
Dry Needling is not acupuncture which is based on traditional Chinese medicine and the concept of meridians. The dry needling technique is a modern, Western medical modality used to treat mostly neuromusculoskeletal conditions, as opposed to balancing whole body systems like acupuncture.
