Trigger Point Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is a treatment technique that utilizes thin, solid filament needles to deactivate and desensitize trigger points in muscles. A myofascial trigger point is a shortened, knotted muscle that can contribute to pain, decreased flexibility and decreased muscle function.

Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. Trigger point dry needling is most effective when it is used as an adjunct to other therapy techniques and treatments that specifically address a patient’s underlying muscle dysfunction.
