Periosteal pecking is a form of dry needling in which the tip of the needle contacts the periosteum. Periosteal pecking reduces or stops pain by acting on delta and C pain fibres.
The technique promotes growth and repair of cartilage by stimulating activity of cartilage cells called chondroblasts. Periosteal pecking can help with treatment for osteoarthritis, chin splints, tennis and golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon problems and other periosteum involving issues.
