What is Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN)?
Trigger point dry needling is a technique used to reset the musculoskeletal system in order to relieve pain with lasting results. Very thin filiform needles are inserted into trigger points that elicit a reflex in the muscle in the form of a light twitch. Trigger points are tight or knotted sore muscles. As a result, the muscle lengthens and tension dissipates causing an immediate increase in range of motion.
