What is Dry Needling?
Dry Needling uses thin, sterile, single use needle inserted in to the muscle to try and illicit a local twitch response (ltr). For most people this sounds intimidating, but it usually is quite tolerable. The patient will feel a light pinch at the beginning, then a little pressure or dullness, and then will feel the muscle twitch or do a quick contraction.
Due to the effectiveness and usually immediate results of dry needling it has quickly become popular among professional athletes and professional sports teams. The Redskins are just one of the NFL teams that use this procedure to heal their athletes and speed recovery time.

How Does Dry Needling Work?
Dry needling is used to release tight bound up muscle tissue. Most people refer to this as a “muscle knot”. It is an area within the muscle that is not acting normally and causing pain. It can also restrict range of motion and change normal movement patterns. That is why Dry Needling is so beneficial to athletes. Athletes push their body’s to the limit and sometimes the body is not able to fully recover before the next workout or event. Dry Needling is able to allow these tight bands of muscles to relax, restoring normal muscle function and mobility.
