A dry needling treatment will usually include a session in which you will lie or sit on the table with a small area of skin exposed (part of your body where you are feeling the pain). The needles will be inserted into the trigger points of your muscles. Typically the needles are left inserted for about 5-10 minutes in order to release the trigger points in the muscle. A stim unit may or may not be used, depending on symptoms, to increase the efficacy of the treatment.
