Dry needling therapy is a proven effective treatment against several musculoskeletal disorders. Also known as myofascial dry needling, this is a therapeutic technique that involves locating active or latent myofascial trigger points in skeletal muscles and its associated fascia. Once these are located, a dry needling practitioner will use a sterile needle to probe and deactivate these trigger points.
This therapy technique has its foundations on western anatomical and neuro-physiological principles, This must not be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique of acupuncture. Myofascial dry needling is a cost effective treatment method for myofascial pain, certain types of injuries and chronic muscular dysfunction. This is usually incorporated within a massage treatment.
