Myofascial Dry Needling
Myofascial Dry Needling is an efficient technique for the treatment of myofascial pain, muscle spasms, injury and chronic muscular dysfunction radiating from trigger points within the muscles. It involves using a sterile fine filament needle (as used by Acupuncturists) to probe and de-activate active or latent trigger points in skeletal muscle and its associated fascia. Dry needling allows access to deep musculature to achieve optimum results. The simple insertion of the needle into the taut bands can interrupt the pathogenic process and produce mechanical changes in the tissue. The approach is based on western anatomical principals.
Myofascial Dry needling is incorporated within the massage treatment.
