Dry needling is increasingly used by a physical therapist (allowed in state of Illinois) to address acute and chronic pain in muscle, fascia, and connective tissue without the need for oral medication or injections. It also diminishes pain receptors and reduces (even restores) impairments in the body’s structure and function, leading to enhanced activity.
Experienced physical therapists use dry needling to release or inactivate trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Physical therapists may use dry needling as part of an overall treatment plan.
