What Is Trigger Point Dry Needling?
Trigger points are tense and knotted areas between muscles that create discomfort. A trigger point in one spot of the body can create pain around others. Stress, tension, and physical activity can worsen these trigger points over time.
Trigger point dry needling relieves this pain by inserting sterile needles into the affected muscle. This method will shut down trigger points and reduce muscle tension in and around the area.
Dry needling differs from the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture in several significant ways. For example, trigger point therapy taps directly into the knots of the muscle; however, acupuncture focuses on the patient’s overall energy balance.
Our methods are ethical and safe. Trigger point therapy is becoming a popular wellness alternative to invasive surgeries and drugs. We can answer questions about the treatment process so you can relax and enjoy the results.

Recovery From Treatment
Dry needling is a brief therapy that usually takes under 30 minutes to complete. Some individuals may experience slight bruising or soreness following the treatment, but these side effects are typical and should subside quickly.
Some may experience a degree of fatigue after therapy as well. This symptom is typically due to muscles settling after being tense for so long.
Dry needle therapy is excellent for teens and healthy adults, but we do not recommend this therapy for:
- Pregnant women
