Dry needling is a procedure in which an acupuncture needle is inserted directly into the muscle at the site of a trigger point. A trigger point is a hypersensitive spot in a muscle that can refer pain to other areas of the body. Once the trigger point is deactivated (this can be done through acupressure or dry needling) the pain sensation that is felt in the associated muscle or the joint that has been limited, is improved.
Dry needling focuses on joint and muscular injuries and pain unlike acupuncture which works with energy meridians and its flow in the body. So whilst acupuncture and dry needling sound similar there use in treatment is quite different.
