Dry needling is often used as a form of trigger point therapy, and is an effective way of alleviating soft tissue tension in the presence of sensitivity..
What is Myofascial Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a treatment technique in which a thin filament needle is inserted directly into a trigger point within a muscle. This is aimed at releasing tight muscles with the goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and dysfunction.
Trigger points are localised areas of muscles that have become tightened. This results in tenderness of the muscle and affects the way the muscle functions, as it is unable to lengthen and contract like a healthy muscle.
The primary goals of dry needling are to desensitise nerves, restore motion and function, and induce a healing response within the damaged tissue to relieve a range of musculoskeletal problems by restoring their proper functions.
