Your Health Matters – What is the difference between Dry Needling and Wet Needling?

 

Bill: Dry needling and wet needling. Dry needling is essentially using a dry needle
which is generally an acupuncture needle or a very fine filament. Wet needling is when
we inject something through the needle like a cortisone injection, or you know, an
injection that a doctor might give. So, dry needling is used for what?

Steve: Well, muscle release. So if you have a really tight knot in the muscle, often you
can use a dry needle to kind of poke it and stimulate it and get it to release.

Bill: Pretty simple, really.

Steve: Yeah
