Myofascial trigger points are problematic for the body. They can arise from many different ways including heavy training/competition, trauma, training errors, poor range of motion and previous injury. They reduce flexibility, joint range, blood flow, functionality and can produce aches and referred pain in the muscle as well as other compensating muscle groups. This in turn decreases athletic performance and increases the risk of other injury.
Myofascial trigger points: a hyperirritable spot, usually within a taut band of skeletal muscle. The spot is painful on compression and can give rise to characteristic referred pain, tenderness and autonomic phenomena (Simons et al., 1999).
Dry needling is accupuncture and is used to improve flexibility, range of motion, blood flow and overall muscle functionality via deactivation of myofascial trigger points.
