Dry needling is a technique of inserting fine needles into a trigger point or nodule in order to decrease pain, improve mobility and increase function. This is like acupuncture but the insertion of needles is not based on meridian and acupuncture points. Rather, the insertion is in a spot of a soft tissue (muscle, ligament and fascia etc.) that might be causing pain or dysfunction. Due to this, it is often called western acupuncture. This system has been proven effective especially but not limited to patients with chronic pain. It is easily integrated with modern manual therapy and osteopathic techniques.
