Dry needling is a method of treatment that is used to alleviate musculoskeletal pain and tension. It uses thin, monofilament, sterile needles to penetrate the trigger point within the muscle fiber and facilitates its release.
This is done without injection of any substance. This is not traditional Chinese Acupuncture.
All therapists performing this method of treatment have received training in accordance with the provincial legislation and are rostered through the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO).
