what is dry needling?
At FYZICAL, our therapists use dry needling to treat pain and movement impairments. The technique works by inserting a very thin “dry” filiform needle, free from medication or injection, into trigger points or targeted areas of the muscle. This is turn, stimulates underlying myofascial trigger points and muscular and connective tissues. Unlike other forms of therapy, the needle allows our FYZICAL therapist to target tissues that are not manually palpable. (A myofascial trigger point consists of multiple contraction knots, which are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle).
