Trigger Point Dry Needling
Speed up the Healing Process at the Core
TDN is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm caused by injury or misuse of a muscle group over time. This muscular tightness and spasm will cause compression and irritation of the nerves where they come out of the spine. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This can cause symptoms all over the body. Small, thin needles are briefly inserted in the muscles at the trigger points; wherever the symptoms are, the muscles then contract and release improving flexibility of the muscles and decreasing symptoms. This is something that is used in many if not most types of patients who have pain and/or dysfunction. It speeds up the process of returning to normal movement patterns with less pain.
