SPORT Clinic Physical Therapy offers Trigger Point Dry Needling to help resolve common symptoms associated with muscle dysfunction and pain. Our goal is to thoroughly evaluate and treat the cause of musculoskeletal problems, not merely the symptoms.
What is trigger point dry needling?
Dry needling is an evidence-based approach for treating pain and dysfunction. It is used to treat trigger points in muscles.
The procedure involves advancing a thin filiform needle through the skin to stimulate the underlying trigger points.
The result is improved muscle function and less pain with movement. Trigger points in multiple muscles can be treated during each session and no medication of any kind is used.
What causes trigger points?
Trigger points can be the result of overuse, muscle strains, repeated or unaccustomed activities, or even postural strain. They are also associated with osteoarthritis and other joint or nerve dysfunctions.
Does dry needling hurt?
The sensation felt during dry needling is described as a brief muscle cramp lasting a fraction of a second, followed by some soreness comparable to after strenuous exercise.
Trigger point dry needling produces a superior outcome especially when used in conjunction with other physical therapy treatments.
