Trigger Point Dry Needling (TPDN) is a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of thin, solid needles into myofascial trigger points—tender areas within muscles that can cause pain and discomfort. Unlike acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, TPDN is based on Western medicine principles and aims to release tight muscle bands and alleviate pain caused by muscle dysfunction.
TPDN is primarily used to target and release trigger points, providing relief from localized and referred pain. By inserting needles into tight muscle knots, the technique helps to reduce muscle tension and alleviate discomfort.
The insertion of needles into trigger points can lead to the relaxation of tight muscles. This can result in improved muscle function, increased range of motion, and enhanced flexibility.
TPDN promotes muscle relaxation by targeting trigger points, reducing muscle spasms, and releasing tension. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic muscle tightness or stiffness.
The needling process stimulates blood flow to the targeted muscles, promoting better circulation. Improved blood flow helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, supporting the natural healing process.
TPDN is effective in reducing the size and sensitivity of trigger points, addressing muscle knots and tightness. This can contribute to a more comfortable and flexible musculature.
