Dry needling is a treatment technique that can help reduce muscle pain and tightness. Thin acupuncture needles are used to release trigger points (knots) that cause pain in the muscle.
Dry needling can be as effective as a sports massage while often being less painful. It is useful for helping treat and prevent injuries when used in combination with other therapies such as massage, and stretching.
