Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN)
Trigger point dry needling (TDN) is an effective therapy for treatment of both chronic and acute myofascial injuries. Dry needling chiropractic & therapy at Boulder Sports Chiropractic involves the use of a thin filament needle being inserted into the muscle to help stimulate the healing process of any damaged or inflamed tissues that are commonly associated with sports injuries and other ailments. Dry needling chiropractic & therapy can help to decrease muscular tension and spasming, which tend to occur with a variety of trauma or tissue degeneration throughout the body such as arthritis, sprains and strains, nerve impingements, disc herniations, IT band strains, tendinopathies, along with a variety of other sporting and work-related injuries. It does not involve the use of any injectable materials into the body, hence the name `dry' needling. TDN allows us to penetrate the deeper tissues of the body, often providing longer lasting results compared to traditional therapeutic massage and other soft tissue therapies.
Dry Needling Chiropractic & Therapy
What to expect...
Customer experience is our number one priority and before any treatment is administered, your Boulder Sports Chiropractic provider will begin assessing the areas where the muscle adhesions and trigger points are located to ensure accurate and effective treatment. During the session, you may or may not feel the insertion of the "acupuncture-like needle" into the trigger points identified by our expert team members. Often, a twitch response of the muscle can be expected during treatment. Because we are treating areas of discomfort, it is not uncommon to feel mildly sore immediately following treatment. Typically, decreased levels in pain along with improvements in range of motion can be experienced shortly following your TDN session. Trigger point dry needling is a perfect solution for patients looking for pain management and increased mobility without a regiment of pills.
