Neurologic dry needling is the evolution from needling points (myofascial trigger points) to needling the system. Neurologic dry needling can be used to treat all types of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. These conditions are not limited to orthopedics but are applicable to any condition where inflammation (neurogenic), reduced blood flow and muscle guarding is present. The Neurologic Dry Needling system is based on peripheral and central neurologic principles so it is not limited by the traditional trigger point paradigm. Using peripheral nerve mapping model allows a broader opportunity to deliver treatment locally, segmentally, and most importantly systemically.
