Dry Needling – A Quick Overview

What is Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN)?

Dry needling is an effective therapy performed for the purpose of treating muscle tension and spasms, which commonly accompany conditions such as arthritis, nerve irritation, muscle strains, ligament sprains and herniated disks. TDN uses a small monofilament needle, which is inserted by a trained physical therapist into a trigger point (contracted painful knotted muscle fiber) in an effort to create a local twitch response in order to exhaust and release the muscle fibers.
