Dry needling works particularly well on chronic muscle pain and tightness, and acupuncture has great results on arthritic and rheumatic pain. The use of dry needling/acupuncture has been shown to speed up the recovery process and promote tissue healing. Treatment is generally painless and is used in conjunction with other techniques such as manual therapy and specific exercises.
