• Dry Needling also known as intramuscular manual therapy is a modality that is used in combination with trigger point therapy and myofascial release to deactivate an active trigger point.  A licensed physical therapist who has been certified in the Dry Needling procedures will evaluate and pinpoint the active trigger point and then with the use of an accupuncture needle will push through the skin to stimulate the trigger point until the spasms releases.
