Dry needling can help decrease tension in the muscles and facilitate muscular contractions that aren't happening the way they should. It is a technique using a thin needle to target muscles, sometimes accompanied by an electro current through the needle to create twitches in the muscles and help loosen them so they can better function.
Who is a candidate for dry needling?
Anyone with specific joint pain, muscle pain and/or tendon pain could benefit from dry needling. Regardless of how long symptoms have been present, neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis or low back pain are common conditions treated with dry needling.
