Based on modern medical research, dry needling/trigger point needling is a fast and effective way to reduce muscular pain and myofascial dysfunction.
With great care and precision, fine needles are inserted into the trigger points (knots) in the muscle. By doing this, tension is relieved, muscles relax and this allows the increase of blood flow in that area.
The patient will experience a local twitch response, which is a reflex that results in relaxation of the muscle and the associated trigger point.
Your initial appointment with our practitioner will be between 60-90 minutes, with follow-ups generally between 30-60 minutes.
