How Does Dry Needling Work?

Dry Needling works by sticking a small filiform needle into the trigger point of a muscle causing a “twitch” response. These ‘trigger points’ are tender, irritable spots in fascia and muscles, and palpable nodules in taut bands of tissue. This response helps relax the muscle in order to improve movement and restore its normal function. The results are often immediate and noticeable improvements in both pain, range of motion, and you ability to move.

Is Dry Needling Painful?

Most patients will agree that the initial needling is not painful. When patients feel the uncontrolled “twitch” response it may stimulate quick painful response that does not last long.


What Will I Feel After Dry Needling Treatment?

The majority of patients that have had dry needling performed will exhibit an instantaneous increase in mobility and a decrease in their overall pain. Soreness may be a small side effect based on the area treated but should not last more than 1-2 days.



How Many Dry Needling Treatments Will I Need?

The number of sessions of trigger point dry needling is determined by each patients individual progress and severity of his or her condition. In some cases it may only take 1 visit.
