This referral pan can lead to secondary dysfunction such as tendonitis, arthritis, carpal tunnel, decreased mobility, chronic pain, and a range of other disorders. This scenario can be difficult to treat because the true source of the problem is “hidden” and undiagnosed.
Dry needling is a highly effective treatment, unequaled in identifying and eliminating these referring or “hidden” sources of neuromuscular disorder. The treatment involves identifying the source of pain and advancing a small filament needle into the related muscle, causing a small twitch response and then relaxing of the muscle.
By identifying and stimulating these trigger points, we can “reboot” the muscle to alleviate both the original and secondary pain.
