Risks Associated with Dry Needling

Potential Adverse (Unwanted) Risks:

punctured lung
vasovagal response – feeling lightheaded or flushed
muscle soreness
• fatigue
• bruising
• pain during insertion

Many of these adverse effects above are extremely rare. However, if you are nervous of any of these symptoms please talk with your ICTMJC doctor prior to receiving Dry Needling Therapy.
