Dry needling is a form of acupuncture that involves the insertion of acupuncture needles into the muscles to help relieve myofascial pain and trigger points. The needle is usually inserted into a muscle’s motor point, which is the most excitable part of the muscle, to elicit a local twitch response. Overall, dry needling promotes faster healing and muscle relaxation, and is an effective form of pain management of soft tissues.
