Dry Needling is the technique of releasing myofascial triggers with fine acupuncture needles that work locally and directly.
This technique has been used for centuries to relieve tension in overworked muscles, and to improve the quality of muscle tissue.
At this point we must stress that this is not acupuncture. Other needles can work with a similar effect, but acupuncture needles happen to be very fine, quite gentle, and very easily tolerated.
The podiatrists at Posture Podiatry can use dry needling as part of a broad treatment plan to encourage healthy function through muscles and connective tissue.
