Dry needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in muscle).
A myofascial trigger point, also known as a knot in the muscle, is a group of muscle fibres which have shortened when activated but have not been able to lengthen back to a relaxed state after use. A myofascial trigger point develops a sensitive nodule in the muscle. This hypersensitivity occurs as the muscle fibres become so tight that they compress the capillaries and nerves that supply them. As a result, the muscle is unable to move frequently, obtain a fresh blood supply containing oxygen and nutrients, or flush out additional acidic chemicals.
In addition to this nodule, the remainder of the muscle also tightens to compensate. The presence of a myofascial trigger point in a muscle can lead to discomfort with touch, movement and stretching; to decreased joint motion; and even a temporary loss of coordination.
-Also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an alternative technique adapted from acupuncture and it is an effective way of treating chronic pain and discomfort arising from a tense and contacted muscle.
