Myofascial dry needling is a safe form of treatment for common musculoskeletal conditions and chronic myofascial pain. Through the use of acupuncture needles via Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), myofascial dry needling creates an inflammatory response which is produced in common trigger points or areas of muscle shortening. Your Remedial Massage therapist may use myofascial dry needling to quickly and effectively reduce pain. Proper stretching after a myofascial dry needling session is advised to reduce the feeling of delayed onset muscle soreness and to maintain the lengthened muscle position for longer.
