Trigger points are irritable, hard “knots” within a muscle that may cause pain over a large area, leading to difficulty performing everyday tasks. When a person has painful muscles and trigger points, it is sometimes called myofascial pain syndrome.
Dry needling is a treatment that involves a very thin needle being inserted into a muscle to stimulate a trigger point.
Dry needling may release the tight muscle bands associated with trigger points and lead to decreased pain and improved function.
