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.
You guys are awesome! Thanks so much for all you have done. I can tell you really care about what you do by the way you treat people and talk to them like regular people and just a patient. I’ll miss you a lot. It is nice to have my shoulder back. God bless.Karlyn
