Dry needling

Acupuncture services.

Dry Needling is a form of acupuncture that traditionally used a hypodermic needle with no injected liquid.  Thus the 'dry' needle.  Wet needling uses a hypodermic needle to administer some form of medicine like Lidocaine, Benzocaine, or even steroids.  Sometimes even plain saline is used.  

A better term for this would actually be motorpoint needling or myofascial trigger point therapy,  sometimes called needle therapy for back pain.
