Dry Needling with Electrical Stimulation

With dry needling, the therapist gently inserts needles through the patient’s skin directly into the affected muscle.  The extremely fine needles are either hollow-core hypodermic needles or solid filiform needles, such as those used in acupuncture. They do not contain medication or injection, hence the term “dry.” 

Sometimes we add electrical stimulation or e-stim, an electrical current transferred through the dry needle that can help accelerate the pain-relief process. On low frequency, the electrodes help stimulate smooth muscle fibers to increase blood flow, which helps heal specific muscles or areas of inflammation more quickly.
