What is Acupuncture and Dry Needling?
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that involved stimulating certain body points with a needle penetrating the skin. Dry Needling is a technique used to get the muscle and nerve junction to release the muscle and is similar in that a needle is inserted into the skin to reduce pain.
The difference between acupuncture and dry needling is that acupuncture treats to alter the flow of energy along traditional Chinese meridians, while dry needling follows evidence-based guidelines, recommended point of location and dosages for the treatment of a specific condition.
