Dry needling technique is an acupuncture technique which falls under the specialty of Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM). It is an effective technique for treating myofascial trigger points with related pain and restrictions.  Dr. Denny is a specialist in APM, a technique based upon Dr. Janet Travell's trigger point therapy.

Be wary of weekend trained practitioners who present themselves as experts in dry needling. It takes years to become proficient in this technique and you should choose your doctor or therapist wisely. Even the AMA has come out with a position against poorly trained healthcare providers using dry needling without similar education as professionally trained acupuncture providers.
