Dry needling is a modern western version of acupuncture treatment designed to ease muscular pain. It is an emerging physical therapy technique that uses a small needles to release knots within the muscles. This treatment has been in use since the 1940s, but it has only recently become a widely used form of therapy to reduce pain, tightness, and discomfort. With the use of small, thin needles, injured soft tissue undergoes a therapeutic process of recovery as tension and pressure is released.
