dry Needling means inserting acupuncture needles without training g in appropriate physiology, pathology, diagnosis or treatment. Many studies of acupuncture have proven the ineffectiveness of needling with the appropriate knowledge and training. It is referred to in studies as “sham acupuncture” and is used as a control in double blind studies to determine the effectiveness of acuij crude. Dry needling is ineffective, inappropriate and gives acupuncture a bad name as people will confuse its ineffectiveness with true acupuncture.
