Manual Trigger Point Dry Needling is a hands-on Physical Therapy approach to treat myofascial pain and dysfunction. It is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points to deactivate and shut down painful or knotted areas in the muscle. By inserting the filiform needle into these areas a local twitch response will be elicited. A local twitch response is a brief contraction followed by an immediate and long lasting relaxation. Multiple trigger points in multiple muscles can be treated during each treatment. The deepest parts of muscles can be reached utilizing this treatment procedure allowing for amazing pain relief many people never thought possible.

How long before results are realized?
You will likely feel a positive change right after the first session because you will feel soreness similar to how you would feel after too much activity. The muscle will feel fatigued. This soreness and fatigue can last from a few hours to 1-2 days, but should not interfere with your daily activities. After 1-2 days on average, you should begin to experience less pain and less tightness. This should become long lasting just after only 1-2 sessions.
