At Momentous Sports Medicine, we use many different manual techniques to help you eliminate your pain and improve your function, including trigger point dry needling. Dry needling is the use of a thin sterile filament needle to release trigger points and tightness in the muscle. Trigger points can cause pain, weakness and improper movement patterns. Once the trigger point is released, pain decreases and movement improves, leading to the ability to properly improve strength and function. Consult with your Momentous practitioner for further information and to see if dry needling would work for you.
