Trigger Point Dry Needling

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) involves placing a small filament needle into the muscle at the trigger point which is typically in an area where the muscle is tight and tender. The intent of TDN is to elicit a local twitch response to normalize muscle tone, therefore improving the mobility of the muscle and decreasing the symptoms. Dry Needling is performed by a licensed physical therapist who has received additional training in this technique. TDN is often an effective treatment for myofascial pain. Myofascial pain can be a component of many conditions including joint problems and soft tissue pathologies.

TDN as used in physical therapy is not acupuncture and should not be confused with a complete acupuncture treatment performed by a licensed acupuncturist. A complete acupuncture treatment might yield a holistic benefit not available through a focused dry needling treatment. Patients interested in acupuncture should consult with a licensed acupuncturist.

Our physiotherapist, Kim Deschamps MPT, BKin, PYT, BDN,  offers trigger point dry needling as an adjunct to her physiotherapy practice for the treatment of myofascial pain.  Appointments are booked as Physiotherapy.
