§Trigger Point Dry Needling: Also called Western Style Dry Needling. This modality has been used for many years in Eastern Medicine and is slowly gaining more attention from Western Medicine. This treatment helps relieve trigger points for tight and tense muscles and is especially beneficial for patients who have chronic pain or sports injury such as sprain, muscle cramp, tight shoulder muscles, lower back pain and foot pain (plantar fasciitis).
