Trigger Point Dry Needling


About Us Dry Needling Trigger Point Therapy Treatment
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.

Trigger Points

A myofascial trigger point is a hyperirritable spot in a muscle which is painful to touch and is located in a taut (tight) band. This hypersensitive spot, or nodule (the “knot”), can give characteristic referred pain, referred tenderness, and other referred symptoms in areas other than where the muscle is located and is related to the production and maintenance of the pain cycle.
