Dry Needling Q & A

What is dry needling?

Dry needling at Scarsdale Health & Wellness uses tiny needles to reduce pain and restore your body’s natural healing capabilities. It helps improve chronic problems with your:

  • Muscles
  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
  • Nerves


During the treatment, your provider inserts thin acupuncture needles into trigger points, or hyper-irritated muscle tissues, to release tension and alleviate discomfort.

What is dry needling used for?

You provider at Scarsdale Health & Wellness might recommend dry needling to improve pain associated with:

  • Disc or joint problems
  • Tendinitis
  • Migraines
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal problems
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Night cramps
  • Pelvic pain
  • Other types of chronic pain


If you experience pain associated with a sports injury, chronic disease, fall, or automobile accident, dry needling might be the holistic solution for you.

What’s the difference between dry needling and acupuncture?

Dry needling and acupuncture treatments both use tiny needles to relieve pain and improve the way your body functions. But while acupuncture focuses on improving energy flow, dry needling stimulates tight muscle fibers in trigger points to reduce muscle irritation and pain.

What happens during dry needling?

When you arrive at Scarsdale Health & Wellness for dry needling, you lie down and relax on a comfortable exam table.

Your provider gently inserts very fine needles into strategic areas of your body associated with injuries or pain. While you rest, the needles stimulate twitch reflexes, healing, and pain reduction.

Many patients describe dry needling as a rejuvenating or satisfying experience, but it isn’t painful. Your Scarsdale Health & Wellness specialist might recommend a series of dry needling treatments or ongoing sessions to help you achieve long-lasting relief.

Is dry needling right for me?

Scarsdale Health & Wellness lets you know if dry needling is the right treatment for you after a comprehensive health evaluation.

You might not be a good candidate for the treatment if you’re pregnant. If you take blood thinners or recently had surgery, consult with your doctor before trying dry needling.

Don’t live with nonhealing injuries or chronic pain or use addictive pain medicine when holistic solutions are available at Scarsdale Health & Wellness. Schedule a dry needling consultation over the phone or online today.
