Myofascial trigger points are tight muscle knots that are commonly found on shoulders & lower back due to incorrect body posture. They can also be found in muscles group that are associated with strenuous exercises such as running, swimming, weight-lifting, etc.
Dry needling is the most effective way to get rid of myofascial trigger points naturally. The insertion of thin filament needle helps to “release” the muscle knots and take the pressure off the nerves resulting in:
- Lasting relief of muscular pain
- Reduced muscle spasms
- Improved functional performance
Unlike Chinese acupuncture which focuses on stimulating meridian points, dry needling treatment is delivered based on the understanding of human anatomy & related biomechanics. It is a treatment that is well-received by athletes and patients who suffer from chronic pain!
Highly effective for:
- Runner’s knee (Patellofemoral syndrome)
- ITB pain
- Upper traps tightness
- Gluteal & buttock tightness
- Sports injuries
