Anyone get dry needling done

Hi all,i had dry needling done today on my gluteus muscle(bum muscle).It was tight,sore and affected my walking and drove me mad.Had dry needling today and it was sore but found it loosening the muscle straight away.Il know more tomorrow

What is dry needling? Is it an acupuncture thing?

Sewingchick,yes its like it just much more gets deeper into the muscle and ‘wakes’ it up as such.I had a tight gluteus muscle and i could feel it coming back to life after it.Its a long thin needle pushed deep into the muscle and wriggled a bit to stimulate it.I find it great as it was a problem for me.
