THE FINER POINTS BETWEEN ACUPUNCTURE AND DRY NEEDLING

THE FINER POINTS BETWEEN ACUPUNCTURE AND DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling differs to Acupuncture, as it is a treatment technique utilized by trained physiotherapists, based on anatomy, physiology and biological concepts within the Western model of health.  Dry needling involves the insertion of exactly the same thin needles as acupuncture (but different reasons, locations and techniques) and has been shown to effectively manage painful conditions including neck and back pain, osteoarthritis, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis.
