Beyond Needling Trigger Points

Beyond the Trigger Point

Many of us needle. We are taught to dry needle trigger points and sometimes (especially in the seminars I teach), to needle the segmental innervation of the muscle involved. But should we do more? I think so, and here is one paper on incorporating needling myofascial meridians along with trigger points that . . .

As people who needle, we often emphasize needling the paraspinal muscles associated with the segemental innervation of the peripheral muscle you are needling. For example, you may needle the L2-L4 paraspinals (ie: femoral nerve distribution) along with the quads, or perhaps the C2 PPD’s along with the suboccipitals. We do . . .
