Trigger point therapy and DryNeedling

The muscle loses its normal state of tension due to incorrect stress or traumatic overstretching. That`s why trigger points occur.

Trigger points can cause local pain, or they can be felt through radiation to related body regions. In trigger point therapy, the muscle is stimulated with specific movements so that the state of tension can normalize again.

So-called dry needling can be used as a support. Sterile acupuncture needles are used for this technique.

Not all therapists are trained in DryNeedling. Please ask to be assigned to a suitably trained therapist:
