Q: What is the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?
A: While they both use Acupuncture needles they are very different forms of treatment. Acupuncture involves needles being inserted at certain acupuncture points along the meridian lines. These lines represent organs of the body and have their origins in ancient Chinese medical history. Acupuncture is usually used more for internal treatments--complaints like digestive issues, stress and chronic pain. Dry Needling is based on the theory that when trigger points develop in muscles, they lead to neuromuscular dysfunction, resulting in pain, decreased function and increased stress on surrounding structures. Acupuncture needles are used to elicit a twitch response to release the trigger point and restore normal function to the muscle.

Depending upon how easily you bruise, this treatment make leave marks on your skin. These marks typically disappear within a couple days.
