Trigger Point Dry Needling

Relieve Pain from Irritated Muscle and Tissue

A myofascial trigger point is a painful spot within a taut band of muscle that produces local or referred pain. The trigger point can lead to increased pain, decreased flexibility and decreased muscle function if not treated. Dry Needling uses small, thin needles to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points for the management of many orthopedic conditions, both acute and chronic.

By inserting a needle into the dysfunctional tissue, it often leads to a contraction of the muscle which then stimulates a release. This leads to a reduction of pain, improvements in flexibility and a restoration of normalized movement when combined with corrective exercises.

Common Issues That Benefit From Dry Needling

Muscle dysfunction can be the primary or secondary contributing factor to many neuromusculoskeletal conditions, which can include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Tendonitis or tendinopathy
  • Muscle strains
  • IT band syndrome
  • Patellofemoral dysfunction
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Neck pain or headaches
  • Rotator cuff impingement
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • SI joint dysfunction
  • Sciatica
