Trigger Point Dry Needling

Colin Moore recently successfully completed a Trigger Point Dry Needling course in Ottawa, Ont. Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. TDN is a manual therapy technique that involves inserting acupuncture needles into active trigger points within a muscle. The muscles then contract and release (twitch), improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms. The needle is pistoned up and down in the trigger point multiple times to completely break up the trigger point. The effect is an immediate decrease in symptoms. TDN can help with problems such as; carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain. Colin is certainly happy to be able to add this highly effective treatment technique to their skill set. They look forward to having better treatment results with patients who have symptoms related to muscle trigger points.TriggeTrigger Dry Point Needling Diagram
