Trigger Point Dry Needling
Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) or Inter-muscular Manual Therapy (IMT) is a technique used to treat active trigger points and deep muscle tension. It is popular among athletes and people with chronic pain. TDN decreases muscle pain and tension by releasing knots that are caused by injury and stress. The goal is to achieve a localized twitch response using small needles to separate the muscle tissue, therefore releasing the muscle.
Common injuries treated with TDN include but aren't limited to Muscle tightness, Sports injuries, Chronic neck and back pain, Headaches/Migraines, Plantar fasciitis, Piriformis syndrome, Calf pain, tendonitis, and other pain related symptoms.
Athletes commonly seek TDN from trained professionals as a compliment to their training regimen because it provides benefits without restricting their performance.
