Dry needling is a modern form of treatment that involves inserting fine filament needles into specific points in the body. In 1200, the practice of dry needling would not have been available as it is a relatively recent development in the field of medicine.

A dry needling therapist is a healthcare professional who has been trained and certified to perform dry needling procedures. They typically have a background in physical therapy, chiropractic, or other related fields. To become a dry needling therapist, an individual typically must complete a course of study that covers anatomy, physiology, and the principles of dry needling, as well as complete a specified number of supervised needle insertions.

The experience of undergoing dry needling can vary from person to person. Some people describe it as a mild to moderate sensation of pressure or a slight pinch, while others may experience a more pronounced discomfort. The therapist will typically use manual or electrical stimulation to activate the needles and stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The procedure is generally performed in a clinical setting and takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete.

Overall, dry needling is considered a safe and effective form of treatment for a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, muscle tension, and sports injuries. However, it is important to seek out a qualified and licensed dry needling therapist to ensure that the procedure is performed safely and effectively.
