Dry Needling is an effective way to eliminate trigger points in tight muscle bands found in many acute and chronic injuries or painful syndromes. It is also used to stimulate healing in chronic tendon problems such as Achilles tendonitis and tennis elbow.
In the case of trigger point treatment, needles are inserted directly into the muscle trigger points. These are overactive areas of muscle and fascia, a tough connective tissue that wraps around most of the structure of the human body.
Typically the needle is inserted into the tight band within the muscle until a 'twitch response' is achieved. Often a number of twitches are achieved within a session. There is then a reflex relaxation and lengthening of the muscle, to create a release in the muscle.
