Here at Kerr County Chiropractic, we are proud to offer dry needling.
Dry Needling (DN) is considered a skilled minimally invasive intervention that uses a thin filament needle to penetrate a variety of altered or dysfunctional connective soft tissue including derma, fascia, muscle, scar tissue, ligaments, tendon, peripheral nerves, neurovascular bundles, and even rigid structures such as bone. Dry needling is primarily used for the management of acute and chronic neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. It is considered a form of medical therapy, and many different terms of this type of medical therapy currently exist; these include intramuscular stimulation, trigger point acupuncture, trigger point dry needling, myofascial trigger point dry needling, intramuscular manual therapy, and/or biomedical acupuncture. DN is defined as “dry” because no chemical solution is involved with the insertion of the needle into the tissue. This makes DN distinctly different from “wet” needling, which does involve injection of solution via a needle into connective tissue.
