Dry Needling or IMS

Dry needling is a technique that physical therapists providers use to treat muscle pain and spasms. It involves inserting thin needles into trigger points, which are dysfunctional areas of muscle tissue. DN can help relax the muscles, increase blood flow, and reduce pain. DN is supported by research evidence.
