Dry Needling is a technique physical therapists use for the treatment of pain and movement impairments.   The technique uses a "dry"needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle.Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.

Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research.
