In summary, when an injury occurs from repetitive use or acute trauma, inflammation will be produced from the damaged tissues. Dry needling results in the deepest tissue release allowing for improvements in movement and pain. Your life does not have to be lived in pain, alternative therapies are achieving great strides in research and development. Dry needling is recommended by many physical therapist and medical doctors now.
