Muscles twitch randomly all the time, but if the twitching becomes more consistent and you cannot get it to stop, that may be a muscle spasm. Muscle spasms can be painful and even prevent you from doing some of your daily activities as easily as you did before. So what can you do? What are the best treatment options?
Migraine headaches can be debilitating, but many treatment options are available. If you get migraines, you probably know some things that help you feel better: which medicine works best, if you need caffeine, or the closest dark room you can sleep in until it goes away. For some, dry needling could help symptoms associated with a certain kind of migraine. But how do you know what type you have? And what if you can’t get to a dry needling session in time to diffuse the migraine?
Whether getting shots, getting blood drawn, or getting a tattoo, needles can be uncomfortable to some people, and to others, they can be a source of anxiety.

So, what is dry needling and how can it help relieve symptoms?

You may think, “I can just do stretches at home, why do I need to see a specialist?” You may be wondering whether there are evidence-based studies showing the effects of physical therapy. You may not understand why your doctor referred you to something you think you could do yourself and may be asking, “Is physical therapy really worth it?”
