Dry Needling is a technique that uses acupuncture needles to release off taught myofascial structures, reduce pain, and also promote tissue repair. Although we use the same needles an acupuncturist would use, they are inserted differently and often at different locations on the body to an acupuncture treatment. An acupuncturist would also claim to be able to treat a host of other conditions in addition to what a dry needling practitioner would.
Dry needling is particularly useful in acute presentations, where there is a lot of inflammation and pain. It can be equally valuable in chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia.
