What is the Difference Between
Dry Needling and Acupuncture?
Dry needling is the insertion of acupuncture needles (a thin solid needle) into an area of pain. Needles are only inserted into “Trigger Points” which are tender spots or knots in muscles. Dry needling can break up muscle knots and trigger points. Also, dry needling stimulates the release of endorphins adding in temporary pain relief and encourages the body’s natural healing process.
Acupuncture is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and applied in locations other than just the site of pain. These "distal" points are chosen based off the patients signs and symptoms reported and the practitioner decides on a custom point prescription. These points might move energy away from the location, or they might move energy to the location of pain. The movement of energy can help with pain long-term by bringing the body into a more balanced state.
While dry needling and acupuncture use the same type of needles the technique and principles are very different. Both dry needling and acupuncture can be very helpful in the treatment and management of pain, however, not all healthcare providers are trained in dry needling and acupuncture. Fortunately, Naturopathic Doctors have extensive training in both treatments.
