Trigger Point Therapy
Releasing Muscle Tension
Acupuncture trigger point therapy (aka “dry needling”) provides effective pain relief in musculoskeletal conditions and restores normal joint movement and stability.
Through reducing muscle tension this therapy assists in removing metabolic waste, increasing blood flow and facilitates healing of injuries.
Thin acupuncture needles are inserted into tender areas of muscles and connective tissue. This technique often elicits involuntary muscle twitch that resets neurological regulation of muscle tension, thus restoring strength and elasticity.
In our clinic we usually support trigger point needling with postural recommendations and/or referrals to physical therapy.
