What is Dry Needling?Dry Needling is a form of Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS). Using acupuncture-like needles, the therapist will place the needle into muscles that have tight bands or “trigger points.” The ultimate goal of Dry Needling is to cause a “twitch response” within the muscle. This can feel like an ache, tightness, or small contraction within the muscle. It is brief and the discomfort typically subsides immediately. The purpose of Dry Needling is to create a neuromuscular change which can help to decrease muscle tension, improve muscle strength and flexibility, and, overall, improve symptoms of pain and dysfunction.
