What is dry needling? How is it different to acupuncture?
Dry needling has been shown to be an effective treatment in reducing and alleviating muscle pain and dysfunction. It is called “dry” as no substance is being injected into the body. Very fine needles (like acupuncture needles) are used. This elicits a “twitch response” in the muscle trigger point that induces a change within the muscle and helps it return to normal. (Shah & Gilliams 2008).
Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine, where thin needles are inserted into specific points in the skin believed to restore energy balance.
