Dry needling is a practice that uses trigger points to eliminate pain. The specific trigger points to be used are determined by observing a patient’s reverberation to manipulation of the painful muscles. Once selected, each trigger point can be relieved with a very, very thin needle as it is inserted into the trigger point, influencing the energy flow through the body and causing the muscle to relax and relieve pain. Occasionally heat, pressure, or electrical current is used in addition to these needles.
