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 for your skillful therapy. On a scale of 0-5 (0 being very poor and 5 being excellent) I rate the care and treatment I received as 5… EXCELLENT
