This Weird New Way to Treat Back Pain Might Actually Work – Men’s Health

Move over, acupuncture. Physical therapists are adding a new needle to their toolkits, and it may be effective at banishing bodily aches and pains. Unlike acupuncture, an ancient practice that has been said to manipulate the flow of energy or qi to promote healing,dry needling works directly on the painful points in muscles that practitioners refer to as trigger points.

Key Takeaways:

  • Unlike acupuncture dry needling works directly on the painful points in muscles that practitioners refer to as trigger points.
  • If you get a knot, it can affect the muscle’s ability to contract, lengthen or function properly. Using a needle the thickness of a human hair can break up that pesky knot.
  • Dry needling hurts, and you’ll be sore for a few days afterwards. Although the research isn’t conclusive the evidence so far suggests that it be worth a try.
