MSK Ultrasound Guided
Dry needling is an effective therapy for treatment of both chronic and acute myofascial injuries. Dry needling involves the use of a thin filament needle being inserted into the muscle to help stimulate the healing process of any damaged or inflamed tissues that are commonly associated with sports injuries and other ailments.
Dry needling can help to decrease muscular tension and spasming, which tend to occur with a variety of trauma or tissue degeneration throughout the body such as arthritis, sprains and strains, nerve impingements, disc herniations, IT band strains, tendinopathies, along with a variety of other sporting and work-related injuries. It does not involve the use of any injectable materials into the body, hence the name `dry' needling. TDN allows us to penetrate the deeper tissues of the body, often providing longer lasting results compared to traditional therapeutic massage and other soft tissue therapies. In addition, I use ultrasound images to guide the needle into trigger points and restricted tissue to make the treatment that much more accurate and effective.
