      Dry needling is a method of using Acupunture needles to relieve muscles that may be tense or in a knot...It is very painful, because it is almost like a tatoo...using the needle in a succesion of about 10-20 times, to the affected area.

      There is another method of injections of medication...a numbing solution, anti-inflamitory or steroid if need be-
