Dry Needling is a skilled intervention performed by a health care professional. This professional uses a fine filiform needle to penetrate the skin, creating a healing response in the tissue that has been lesioned. Tissues contributing to neuromuscularskeletal dysfunction can be dry needled, including muscle, fascia, tendon, capsule, ligament, peripheral nerve and microvascular structures. Patients who present with pain syndromes, neuromusculoskeletal disorders and movement impairment syndromes can all benefit from dry needling.
