FAQs for Dry Needling
Dry needling and acupuncture both involve the use of thin needles, but they have different principles and purposes. Dry needling primarily targets muscular trigger points, while acupuncture focuses on energy flow within the body.
Some patients may experience mild discomfort during dry needling, but it is generally well-tolerated. Any potential side effects are typically mild and short-lived, such as temporary soreness at the needling site.
The number of dry needling sessions required varies based on the individual's condition and response to treatment. Dr. D'Amato will discuss a personalized treatment plan.
