Trigger-Point Dry Needling

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.

Benefits of This Service:

  • Pain Relief

    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.

  • Improved Muscle Function

    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.

  • Muscle Relaxation

    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.

  • Enhanced Blood Flow

    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.

  • Reduced Muscle Knots and Tightness

    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.
