Dry needling is a technique that has become one of the best known ways to treat muscle tightness. It is a technique that consists of briefly inserting a small acupuncture like needle (approximately 0.3mm thick) into a trigger point within a muscle.
The needle is gently pushed into the tightest points in the muscle, often referred to as trigger points. Trigger points may develop in a muscle following an injury or over time as a result of repeated overload or stress to the muscle. The insertion of the dry needle causes the muscle to contract briefly, known as a “twitch”.
Following the “twitch” the muscle relaxes and this in turn allows it to relax and potentially reducing pain.
