Dry Needling and Acupuncture
Acupuncture and dry needling are forms of treatment where very fine needles are inserted into tissues (pierces the skin) in order to create neurophysiological reactions in the body and stimulate healing.
What is the difference between acupuncture and dry needling?
Acupuncture is based off traditional Chinese medicine and is used for overall wellness and healing.
Dry needling aims at creating a local twitch response, which is caused by the muscle being stimulated from the needle. This stimulation helps to cause a decrease in pain chemicals, increases blood flow, and helps the overactive muscle fibers to relax.
