One of the most Intuitive and Effective manual therapy treatments
Trigger point dry needling therapy and treatment is an invasive procedure in which an acupuncture 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 trigger point in order to produce a local twitch response. This in turn releases contractile tissue and provides relief from acute and chronic pain within the local area or globally depending on the referrals patterns within the active trigger point.
The advantage of dry needling is it can treat parts of the muscle and deeper layers of the tissues which a therapists hands and fingers cannot reach. Used in conjunction with Myofascial Release and Massage, it is an effective treatment for postural issues, strains, sprains and in the treatment of soft tissue pain and injuries.
Benefits of Dry Needling
Through repetitive behavioural movement patterns, injury or stress, layers of skin within the bodies fascial network become stuck together creating adhesions and detrimental tensile forces that result in soft tissue pain and muscular dysfunction.
Trigger point dry needling works to restore functional movement by using tiny filament needles to release the adhesion within the tissue, immediately improving tissue tone, flexibility and range of motion.
I use Dry needling in conjunction with Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release and a combination of techiniques to provide and comprehensive and holistic approach to all my treatments.
