Medical acupuncture, or dry needling involves the use of sterile needles to reduce muscle tension, pain and improve local blood supply to promote healing. These techniques are used in conjunction with osteopathic treatment or on their own. It is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge or anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine. Medical acupuncture acts mainly by stimulating the nervous system and modulating pain signals. It can be used to alleviate back pain, headaches, neck aches and a broad range of other medical conditions.
Dry needling can be safely used in most muscles of the body, including the low back, calves, quadriceps, hamstrings, neck muscles and suboccipitals, shoulders and buttocks.
