Releasing myofascial trigger points

Dry needling is a method of releasing myofascial trigger points (MTrP) that develop within a muscle. A MTrP is a tight band of muscle fibers that sits within the muscle and is commonly referred to as a “knot” in a muscle. These MTrP’s can cause pain locally in the muscle. Sometimes they can also refer pain to other away from the site of the MTrP, i.e. down the leg or arm. MTrP’s also inhibit normal muscle function as they increase the normal resting tension of the muscle unit. This may increase the risk of further injury to that muscle or to joints around it.
