What is Dry Needling?

It is a technique used by Physical Therapists to break up adhesions and trigger points to reduce muscle spasms, inflammation, pain and increases the range of motion and tissue healing.  During a treatment, the therapist will insert a thin filiform needle into a muscle at certain points in the body.  The needle is gently stimulated, the muscle will twitch and then relaxes as a result.
