Effects of Trigger Point Dry Needling for the Management of Knee Pain Syndromes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Based on the results of individual randomized controlled trials included and on the overall effect size derived from the current meta-analysis, we recommend (moderate evidence) the application of TrP dry needling as compared to other treatments for short-term reduction of pain in individuals with knee pain of musculoskeletal origin. The meta-analysis revealed that TrP dry needling was effective for decreasing pain in PFP, but not with in knee OA or post-surgical knee pain.
