Dry Needling


Dry Needling, Acupuncture requires a medical examination and diagnosis by a practitioner knowledgeable in anatomy, neurology, and orthopedics. It originated in the USA by a US physical therapist called Janet Travell. Needle insertion is indicated by physical signs and not according to predefined meridians. Subjective and objective effects are usually experienced right after the treatment. The easiest way to think of this treatment is to relate it to a massage. The knots in your muscles that massage therapy often targets are similar areas of treatment for IMS (also known as Trigger Point dry needling acupuncture-TDN).

It is important to understand that the origins of Dry Needling Acupuncture are drawn from Western Medicine principals and scientific research-based conclusions. The technique of Dry Needling Acupuncture has NO historical ties to Acupuncture, which is based on Eastern tradition. Dry Needling Acupuncture effectively treats musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction while acupuncture aims to influence “energy” and “meridians.” The only similarity between the two is that they share a common tool, a fine needle. However, just because the same tool is used doesn’t mean the same job is being performed. For instance, a surgeon and a butcher share a common tool but I know who I would want using that tool on me.
