Dry needling – what is it? Is it right for you? More and more people are starting to return to activities that they previously enjoyed. This may include returning to the gym, playing a round of golf, or walking with a neighbor. Since they may have been less active over the past year, with this increased activity people are experiencing a variety of body aches or pains. With these changes people are often unsure of where to turn for help. They might try stretching, stopping activity, or seeing their doctor. While all those are possibilities, they may want to consider a visit to physical therapy where they can experience the benefits of dry needling.
Physical therapists use a variety of methods and techniques to achieve patient goals. They might use massage, stretching, exercises, pain reducing modalities, or other interventions. One of these techniques is called dry needling.
