What Is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling is a technique for using acupuncture needles to solve pain and tension in muscles without the use of medicines. This is not about TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) or acupuncture, but about a needle technique based on Western anatomy and neurophysiology of trigger points in muscles (triger points).
Dry Needling (dry puncture) is a great technique for the treatment of myofacial pain syndrome conducted by specially trained physiotherapists and doctors. It represents a very effective method of manual therapy in solving problems of myofascial trigger points as an elimination of pain. It is most often performed on the muscle of the neck trapezium where the palpation finds a painful trigger point. After the treatment there is a reduction in trigger pain and an increase in the volume of the treated muscle movement.
In 2015, organized by INSTEMA Institute of Manual Therapy from Spain, a certified Dry Needling and mio fascia trigger point course was held in Serbia. This course was attended by our associate.
