Dry Needling
Dry needling is an invasive procedure in which a solid filament needle is inserted into the skin and muscle directly at a myofascial trigger point. It involves insertion and repetitive manipulation of the needle in the myofascial trigger point in order to produce a local twitch response. This twitch response results in muscle relaxation due to the release of shortened bands of muscle fibers. No medication of any kind is injected.

 

Conditions Treated
Deactivation of the trigger points can bring immediate relief of a wide variety of symptoms, then we can immediately train the muscles to work in their newly-gained pain free range of motion.

Trigger point dry needling therapy can help treat the following conditions:

 

  • Myofascial Pain
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • TMJ/TMD
  • Chronic Pain
  • Movement Disorders
  • Sprains or Strains
  • Muscle Imbalances
  • Sports Injuries
  • Joint Pain of Myofascial Origin
  • Orofacial Pain
