TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING
Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) uses thin filament needles to “deactivate” or “shut down” painful or knotted areas in the muscle. These fine needles are inserted into affected areas which elicit a “twitch response” followed by immediate and long-lasting relaxation of the muscle. TDN accelerates healing by promoting increased circulation to the injured area, improved oxygen delivery, and stimulation of neural pathways that can block pain messages.
Patients experiencing chronic or acute pain who have had limited or no response to traditional or nontraditional treatment techniques in the past typically respond well to this type of treatment. It is an effective treatment for many different types of injuries and conditions.
