What is dry needling?
It is a treatment that involves inserting very fine needles into muscles, tendons, joints, and other tissues of the body in order to influence the nervous (nerve), muscular, and skeletal systems of the body. The effects of dry needling include:

  • Pain relief
  • Decrease of muscular spasms
  • Improved healing
  • Relief of trigger points
  • Desensitization of tissues

Does it hurt?
Dry needling is not completely painless, but it produces only a very small amount of pain. You know that “hurts so good” of a deep tissue massage? That hurts more than 99% of needle insertions.

Is it safe?
As long as dry needling is performed by a licensed provider and in a careful setting, dry needling is completely safe. Great care is taken to ensure that no organ, spinal cord, or other delicate tissue will be injured by the insertion of the needles.
