Trigger Point Dry Needling

Dry needling uses a small, mono-filament needle which is inserted in a contracted, painful, knotted muscle to create a local twitch response.

Research has shown TDN can decrease muscle contraction, reduce chemical irritation, improve flexibility and decrease pain.

Dry needling is not acupuncture, which is a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research and requires training and certification.

Although Dry Needling has been used for many years now, research continues to be published that supports the use of Dry Needling as a manual therapy technique that is supported through many studies. TDN has been supported by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) as an appropriate intervention and is under the practice act of the Alaska Physical Therapy Association.

Have to say that the staff & providers at Revolution Sport & Spine are top notch!! Professional, caring and brilliant!!! Highly recommend them for any physical therapy needs you may have. So grateful for the help/assistance they provided me to get back in the game.
