Dry Needling, or specifically, Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN), can be an effective method for treating a variety of skeletal muscle and connective tissue disorders that cause pain, impair movement and limit the ability to do the things you love.
Trigger Point Dry Needling is a specialized service offered by certified providers. As part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program combining manual therapy, exercise, postural education and activity modification, TDN can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions, many that are chronic in nature and that haven’t responded to other treatments. As costs climb and opioid use explodes, TDN can be a highly effective method to reduce pain.
TDN uses a thin, filiform needle to penetrate the skin and underlying muscle and/or connective tissue to release underlying myofascial trigger points that have become hyper-responsive and painful. It’s used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia and connective tissue and to reduce persistent pain and restrictions that inhibit proper movement, activity participation and function.
Dry Needling can be used to treat a variety of conditions and should be part of a comprehensive program. Reach out to our Trigger Point Dry Needling physical therapy experts in St. Louis, MO, now for more information.
