Physical therapists use dry needling with the goal of releasing or deactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Preliminary research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles.
This can help speed up the patient’s return to active rehabilitation.
Some states in the US are now utilizing dry needling in the emergency room to help decrease pain and the use of opioids. Dry needling has been used by therapists for years and is now being more widely accepted as a drug free alternative to relieving pain and restrictions.
