What is Dry Needling?
A physical therapist with specialized training uses Trigger Point Dry Needling by using a solid filament needle that is inserted into the skin and muscle at a myofascial trigger point. A trigger point consists of multiple knots within the muscle. These knots are related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.
Is it the same as acupuncture?
No, Trigger Point Dry Needling is based on Western medical
research and principles, whereas acupuncture is based on Eastern Chinese Medicine. The main similarity is that the same sterile,
disposable, solid filament, needles are used. Dr. Kloosterman is one of a handful of physical therapists in northern Indiana who has been certified in dry needling and has been using it with
great success for the past several years.
