Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) is a physical therapy treatment technique that utilizes filament needles to make changes in myofascial trigger points.  Myofascial trigger points are “knots” in muscles that can contribute to pain and decreased muscle function.  TDN is an effective tool in the hand of a physio managing soft tissue injuries, disorders and pain.
