Which is why you do swab before dry needling - If Wendy was post-operative that would be the main contraindication to infection, however otherwise it is quite a safe and effective form of treatment.

The key thing with dry needling, as well as being analgesic is that does increase metabolic stimulation - Blood to the area and promoting healing :D
I personally don't have issue with my biceps, however I do have rotator cuff problems, and I have found the best and least painful results have been from dry needling.

Wendy, if you're concerned about dry needling, I do recommend you see a Clinical Myo as they do 2 years of dry needling at university as a part of their course, however there are many practitioners who have done the additional training to dry needle effectively.
