We are frequently asked what dry needling is and if it is right for the individual. What it definitely is not, is acupuncture. This is a Western medical treatment involving the insertion of a non-medicated needle into dysfunctional tissues for treatment of pain. Examples of conditions it can be used for include low back pain, knee pain, golfer or tennis elbow, neck pain, cervical headaches and more. It is a great, safe alternative to addictive medication and has long lasting effects when paired with functional interventions like physical therapy and exercise.
