Dry needling is a therapeutic technique in which a trained physical therapist inserts small, sterile filament needles into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. This generates a twitch response, helping release muscle tension and pain.
Active trigger points consist of multiple contraction knots within a muscle and they can develop due to injury, musculoskeletal dysfunction and overuse. Active trigger points impair a person’s ability to lengthen,strengthen or contract the muscle. As a result the muscle shortens and compresses the structure around it, causing pain. Your therapist will insert small, sterile filament needles into the skin and muscles directly at your myofascial trigger points to release muscle tension, restore motion and function, and reduce pain.
Thank you so much for a wonderful PT experience. Not only does my neck feel much better, but I have been blessed by working with all of you. You are caring, yet professional and efficient. Thank you also for sharing your testimonies of the love of Christ in your lives.Joyce
