Acupuncture/Dry needling

iStock_000005988020Small.jpgDry needling is a term that differentiates the use of needling in a western physiological paradigm from the use of needling in an oriental paradigm which is referred to as acupuncture.

Dry needling involves needling to altered or dysfunctional tissues in order to improve or restore function. This includes needling of myofascial trigger points, periosteum and other soft tissues. Myofascial Trigger Points have been described as a hyper-irritable spots within skeletal muscle. Trigger Points are points in muscles which are painful when pushed, and they can refer pain to other areas of the body.

Dry needling addresses symptoms and restrictions found during the physical assessment. Palpation is used to identify the specific changes within the tissue and then application of the appropriate needling technique is used.

When used in conjunction with other techniques, such as manual therapy, postural re-education and strengthening, needling is a very effective tool to treat muscular dysfunction.
