Previous literature has examined using dry needling as a treatment method for rehabilitation in shoulder injuries along with physical therapy. The purpose of this study was to observe the effects of dry needling on pain, range of motion, and shoulder strength in elite overhead athletes with shoulder injuries. It was hypothesized that dry needling would decrease pain and increase range of motion and strength in elite overhead athletes with shoulder injuries.
