Risks & Takeaway

Recommended Posts

Risks

Dry needling is usually considered safe if the practitioner uses sterile needles. Otherwise, a person is at risk of contracting blood-borne pathogens.

Further risks associated with dry needling are mild and relatively common. They include:

temporary soreness at insertion sites
bleeding at the sites
bruising at or around the sites
People who receive acupuncture rarely experience side effects. When they occur, they often include bleeding, bruising, and mild pain.

Takeaway
Both dry needling and acupuncture may help to relieve muscle aches, pains, and tightness.

Acupuncture is a well-regulated procedure. Needles are inserted at strategic points to stimulate the flow of energy throughout the body. While some evidence is inconclusive, acupuncture is widely recognized as helpful in treating certain ailments.

Dry needling was developed much more recently. With no formal regulations in place, a person has a much higher risk of experiencing side effects. There has been little research, but some people find that this practice reduces pain.

Before trying dry needling or acupuncture, consult a doctor and research available practitioners
