Dry Needling Amsterdam IJburg, NDSM, Oud Zuid/De Pijp
Zeeburgereiland, Amstelkwartier and Amsterdam Noord

Dry Needling is the Western form of acupuncture. It helps to dissolve pain points and “muscle knots” in a muscle and relax the muscle. During the treatment, the physiotherapist places thin needles superficially in the pain point. This often gives a recognizable pain reproduction.

Dry Needling versus Acupuncture

In acupuncture, several needles are usually inserted into the skin for a longer period of time. This affects the ‘energy’ of the body.

This is different with Dry-Needling. The physiotherapist usually uses 1 needle to stimulate certain muscles (‘trigger points’). This first tightens the muscle and then relaxes it again. It is therefore not an ‘energy’ treatment.
