Dry Needling in Johnson City TN

Dry Needling in Johnson City is a specific technique that uses a small needle to treat muscle trigger points which are creating pain and discomfort.

A muscle trigger point is highly localized, hyper irritable spot along a band of skeletal muscle fibers. These are located throughout the body and they play a role in producing/sustaining feelings of pain and discomfort.

Trigger points develop in a muscle for various reasons including referred or local pain, inflammation, tissue injury, or other causes.
