Acupuncture Dry Needling

Acupuncture Dry Needling

Trigger Point Acupuncture, also known as dry needling, involves the insertion of a needle into a tight trigger point within a muscle to create a physical release of the constricted tissue.  As an acupuncturist I have had thousands of hours of training in the technique of trigger point acupuncture and I find it very effective in the treatment of pain and dysfunction.

“Accordingly you are advised that under the current statute, physical therapists are not authorized to engage in dry needling or intramuscular stimulation.” – NJ Attorney General
