Dry needling is a therapeutic modality utilized to treat soft tissue restrictions, lack of mobility, and pain. The needles can target “knots” or “trigger points” and provide great relief for patients. A thin needle is placed and causes a physical reaction within the body to help the muscles and surrounding tissue relax. The goal is to reduce pain, increase mobility, and allow individuals to strengthen through a greater range of motion. Dry needling is best used in conjunction with stretching and strengthening exercises thus improving overall function.
