Dry Needling involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the region of a “Trigger Point”. The aim of Dry Needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. Dry needling is an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin with very few side effects.

This technique is unequalled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain and functional deficits.

 The needle used is very thin and most subjects do not even feel it penetrate the skin. A healthy muscle feels very little discomfort with insertion of this needle. However if the muscle is sensitive and shortened or has active trigger points within it, the subject will feel a sensation like a muscle cramp -‘the twitch response’.
