Dry needling is an alternative medicine technique that treats hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle. It’s goal is to correct dysfunction of skeletal muscle through insertion of solid filiform needles. It is also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling because of it’s effect on myofascial pain syndrome. Dry needling is a modern adaptation of traditional acupuncture treatment and there is no medication on the needles. Several treatments may be needed to get relief from muscle pain. In short, NuView Health Medical provides dry needling because patients do report effective relief from the pain of “dense muscle knots”.
