Trigger Point Acupuncture, also known as Dry Needling, is a very effect approach to the treatment of pain and injury. At Vitalize we have found that trigger point acupuncture can be our most effective tool for the treatment muscle tension, muscle strain, chronic pain, injury, and much more. Trigger point is a Chinese medicine technique with a western medicine spin. Instead of focusing on specific acupuncture points, practitioners use their knowledge of anatomy to stimulate the muscle motor points in the area of tension or injury, this causes a twitch response, a release of Lactic Acid, and a reduction in tension and pain. Trigger point acupuncture increases circulation to the muscles so that they can receive fresh blood full of nutrients and white blood cells which quickens recovery time. Patient as well as their providers, are often surprised by how quickly chronic pain is resolved.
