Dry Needling

 

 

Dry needling is a treatment that involves a thin, sterile, single-use needle being inserted into the myofascial trigger points (TPs). TPs are referred to as a hyperirritable spot in a muscle. They are also known as taut bands or knots in muscles. Having myofascial trigger points is suggested to decrease the joint range of motion as they can change the muscle activation patterns.

 

Dry Needling can be used

  • To release myofascial trigger points (taut bands or knots in muscles)

  • to restore full range of motion in the muscle

  • to improve muscle firing/ activation patterns- (very important)

Our Myotherapist has a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine a treatment plan.

We take precise history and perform a thorough assessment and postural analysis in order to determine exactly where the problem, tension and or injury is within the muscular system with the aim of eliminating the root cause, not just the symptoms.
