Dry needling is a modern, science-based treatment for pain and dysfunction due to muscle, tendon, and ligament (soft tissue) injuries. An injury can be as simple was a myofascial trigger point or painful knot in the muscle. Treatment involves inserting fine needles into the injured soft tissue. Dry needling is a valuable and effective therapy for musculoskeletal pain, can improve muscle function, and range of motion. Dry needling can benefit neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headache, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, lower back pain, and more.
