Trigger Point Dry Needling

Trigger point dry needling is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm which commonly follows injuries and often accompanies the degenerative processes. This muscular tightness and spasm will cause compression and irritation of the nerves exiting the spine. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This may cause peripheral diagnoses, such as carpel tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain. Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscles at the trigger points causing the pain referral. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.

Effective Treatment Techniques Offered at Tomsic Physical Therapy

Manual Therapy is a sub-specialty in the field of Physical Therapy. This highly skilled therapy involves the hands-on movement of a joint, muscle, or other soft tissue to decrease pain, increase range of motion, reduce inflammation, promote relaxation, improve soft tissue repair, flexibility, and/or stability, and improve function. Here at Tomsic Physical Therapy we specialize in Manual therapy as part of your treatment. There are many ways to pursue this sub specialty, from a weekend course, to a 1-2 year Fellowship Training program. Although anyone who has completed a weekend course can call themselves a ‘manual therapist’, here at Tomsic Physical Therapy, we have the only two Fellowship Trained Manual Therapists in the Four Corners region.
