Dry Needling:

Dry needling is an effective treatment technique that involves the use of very fine acupuncture needles to deactivate trigger points. Treatment involves insertion of a needle into the muscle, creating a ‘twitch’ sensation, and releasing tension. It is usually necessary to treat many different trigger points to obtain the best results. Post treatment, there is a release of muscle spasm and improvement in muscular function.

A trigger point is a tight, irritable area of muscle that, when palpated, causes local or radiation of pain. Patients often describe them as a ‘knot’ in the muscle. They generally develop over time due to an overload of a muscle, often related to exercise, posture or biomechanics.
