Dry Needling

by pb-lin pb-lin
What is it? The most mainstream of the therapies described in our Cutting-Edge Pain Therapies feature, dry needling is used by physical therapists who want to reach problematic areas of tissue that lie deep in a muscle. They insert thin (acupuncture-like) needles into tense bands of muscle. When the needles penetrate them, they help relax these bands and release the neurochemicals that are causing pain, says Scott Epsley, P.T., R.M.S.K., director of physiotherapy and clinical diagnostics for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers. “It causes muscles to relax, bloodflow to increase, and the body’s natural healing process to activate,” he says. “Once the trigger point is released, the muscle quickly begins to contract and function normally.”
