What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a procedure that uses a filiform (acupuncture) needle to relieve myofascial trigger points ("muscle knots") by inserting the needle directly into the muscle at the trigger point. By inserting the needle into the trigger point the muscle is able to relax through a local twitch response (LTR).
Dry needling can help conditions such as:
- Muscle Spasm
- Neck and Low Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
Ask Dr. Connolly if Dry Needling may be right for you!
