Dry Needling

Prognosia Offers Dry Needling Service In Gurgaon

Trigger-point dry needling is an invasive procedure where a fine needle or acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle. It is aimed at myofascial trigger points (MTrP) which are hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle that are associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule in a taut band. Trigger point dry needling can be carried out at a superficial or deep tissue level.

How It Benefits

The effectiveness of this treatment depends greatly on the skill of the therapist to accurately palpate myofascial trigger points as well as kinaesthetic awareness of the anatomical structures.

Dry-needling can restore muscle activation and strength as well as ROM.

Dry-needling decreases pain in patients with chronic low back pain and in patients with hemiparetic upper limb post CVA.

Muscle regeneration

The needle may cause a small focal lesion which triggers satellite cell migration to the area which repairs or replace damaged myofibers. This occurs 3-5 days after dry needling.
