Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a treatment technique that uses thin, solid, filiform needles to treat acute and chronic pain by relaxing the muscle, improving blood flow and improving the brain's ability to control the muscle.  

The needles used are quite small and you may not even feel the insertion of the needle.  It is common to experience a cramping sensation during the treatment.
