What to Expect With Dry Needling
After evaluation, your treatment may include either
Superficial needling: Your therapist will insert the needle only five to ten millimeters below the skin.
Deep needling: Your therapist will insert the needle beyond the subcutaneous tissue deep into the muscle.
The number of needles used and length of treatment will also vary depending on your condition.
Slight soreness for 24-48 hours afterward is normal. It is important to stay hydrated and continue regular movement. Heat can be used if needed.
