Trigger Point Dry Needling
Dry needling is a technique physiotherapists use to treat myofascial pain. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points. Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include trigger point dry needling and intramuscular stimulation.
At Core Sports and Manual Physiotherapy , IMS/dry needling may be used to release specific taut muscle bands that hold specific parts of the body (pelvis, foot, shoulder blade, humerus) in poor alignment or posture. This malalignment often contributes to poor movement patterns, posture and pain. IMS/dry needling is used in conjunction with manual therapy and movement training to help restore better posture and movement patterns for multiple tasks and conditions.
