Dry Needling Or Trigger Point Dry Needling
Dry needling is similar to acupuncture and employs the same type of acupuncture needle. Dry needling is also known as trigger point dry needling, because a small, solid filament needle is inserted into a muscle contracture (painful knotted muscle) known as a trigger point.
Dry needling decreases pain, reduces muscle spasms, and improves circulation and flexibility.
Dry needling can assist with many common conditions, such as:
- Neck/Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Tennis/Golfers Elbow
- Hip and Gluteal Pain
- Knee Pain
- Achilles Tendonitis/Tendonosis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Muscular Strains/Ligament Sprains
- Chronic Pain
- Athletic Performance
