Dry needling is similar to acupuncture; however, it specifically treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Conditions like pain, muscle spasms, and tendon injuries are often the target. The thin filament needles decrease pain by releasing endorphins, enkephalins, bradykinin, and nitric oxide. It also stimulates mechanoreceptors, effectively cancelling out pain signals. Pain and range of motion difficulties are very successfully treated with Dry Needling.
