Dry needling: How the modern treatment aims at easing muscle pain

There’s a new treatment for muscle pain that involves a system called dry needling. It works by inserting needles into what is known as a trigger point which is a painful knot type sensation in the muscle and fascia. Although it seems similar to acupuncture, it does not target meridians but instead releases tension directly in the pained area. The treatment can be painful like massaging a knot would be, but the results seem to indicate it’s fast acting. Research suggests it’s good for headaches, and multiple areas of pain on neck and back.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acupuncture and dry needling seem similar, but the later is a modern treatment rather than an ancient technique.
  • Dry needling focuses on inserting and manipulating needles directly into knots of muscle tension, rather than acupuncture points.
  • With dry needling, physiotherapists manipulate these areas of muscle tension to relieve stress and pressure.

“By the next morning, it was a nagging ache, and eventually, the headaches were gone – from just one session.”
