Myofascial trigger points (muscle knots) can develop in a muscle due to various causes. Examples of these causes are overload, fatigue, an accident, joint dysfunction or stress. These trigger points can cause (radiating) pain, loss of muscle strength and mobility.
Dry Needling is an effective method to treat trigger points. A dry needle is inserted into or near the trigger point. The tissue reacts reflectively to the sharp stimulus causing an immediate relaxation of the trigger point. Through this relaxation you will immediately experience a reduction in your symptoms.
