What is dry needling?

Revive Dry Needling

Dry needling is a procedure that treats pain. Practitioners use very fine needles inserted in target locations on the body. These are called trigger points.

Trigger points are spots where muscle has knotted or contracted. The tight spot is sensitive to the slightest pressure and when touched, pain can radiate down the muscle.

What are the benefits?

Dry needling is considered a minimally invasive treatment. This means that, while the provider does insert needles, they do not go in very far and they do not stay in the muscle for long periods. People who get relief from dry needling may cut back or eliminate their pain medicine over time.
Dry needling may help relieve pain and increase your range of motion.

Conditions that dry needling may treat are:

  • Joint issues
  • Disk issues
  • Tendonitis
  • Migraine
  • TMJ
  • Whiplash
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Spinal issues
