Trigger Point Dry Needling 

Our sports performance physical therapy clinic specializes in helping runners in Mount Pleasant and Charleston, SC overcome pain, enhance mobility, and elevate their running performance. One of the key therapies we offer is trigger point dry needling, a highly effective treatment that provides numerous benefits for runners.

What Is Trigger Point Dry Needling?
Trigger point dry needling is a minimally invasive treatment technique that involves inserting thin, solid filament needles into specific trigger points in muscle tissue. These trigger points, also known as muscle knots, are areas of tightness and hypersensitivity that can contribute to pain, restricted motion, and reduced overall performance.

Benefits of Trigger Point Dry Needling
Trigger point dry needling delivers a range of benefits to runners, including:

  • Pain Reduction: By targeting and releasing trigger points, dry needling can significantly decrease pain and discomfort associated with running-related injuries, strains, sprains, and overuse issues.

  • Improved Range of Motion: The release of muscular tension through dry needling promotes enhanced flexibility and improved range of motion, allowing runners to move more freely and efficiently.

  • Reduced Muscular Tension: Dry needling effectively alleviates muscular tension, promoting relaxation and improved muscle function, which is essential for optimum running performance.

  • Optimized Movement: By addressing trigger points and muscular imbalances, dry needling helps optimize movement patterns, reducing the risk of re-injury and enhancing overall movement quality.

Integration with Exercise Regimen

Pairing trigger point dry needling with the appropriate exercise regimen can be highly beneficial for individuals recovering from strains, sprains, overuse injuries, and tension headaches. When combined with targeted exercises, dry needling can help in:

  • Facilitating Recovery: The combination of dry needling and exercises accelerates the recovery process by addressing both muscular imbalances and tissue dysfunction.

  • Enhancing Performance: By promoting pain-free movement and improved mobility, dry needling aligns with an exercise regimen to enhance overall athletic performance, particularly for runners.
