Myofascial Trigger Points have been one of the most commonly overlooked causes of both acute and chronic pain. Today, evidence shows that myofascial pain may often be the primary cause of pain and dysfunction. This workshop presentation highlights recent studies in MTrP including the neurophysiology and pathology and will demonstrate the technique of de-activation of trigger point areas using dry needling with acupuncture needles. The practical demonstration of superficial and deep dry needing will also focus on needle safety and cleanliness, the effects of needling muscle, fascia and connective tissue and specifies about needling different muscles and areas of the body. This workshop is mainly but not restricted to therapists for whom dry needling is in their scope of practice.
