What is Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling)?
There are two widely knowns forms of acupuncture: traditional and western. Traditional acupuncture is based on the Chinese belief about energy flowing through your body, whereas western acupuncture (also known as medical acupuncture and dry needling) is evidence-based.
Here at MSK Sports Injury Clinic, we use Dry Needling, which is a technique used for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. This technique uses a dry needle, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. Instead of traditional Chinese philosophy backing it up, it has a more modern origin.
Dry needling is a process that relies on small, painless needles being placed on certain areas of the body.

How Does Medical Acupuncture (Dry Needling) Work?
Our practitioner places needles on specific areas of the body where the client is experiencing pain. This targets the neuromusculoskeletal system. It’s based on trigger point therapy — a system of pain relief that involves targeting and manipulating the area in question, in order to relieve negative sensations. That’s why it’s a popular physical therapy treatment for athletes.
When a fine filament needle is inserted into the center of a myofascial trigger point, blood pools around the needle triggering the contracted muscle fibers to relax by providing those fibers with fresh oxygen and nutrients, as well as by flushing away any additional acidic chemicals. This, in turn, leads to the decompression of the local blood and nerve supply.
