  3. 3.  Dry needling is another tool in the armory of physiotherapist.  When used purposefully dry needling works well in various musculoskeletal and neuro muscular conditions.
  4. 4. Therapeutic effects  Pain reduction by counter irritation & release of neurotransmitters  Pain reduction by resolving trigger point  Promotion of healing by fibroblastic activation  Promotion of healing by increasing local blood supply
  5. 5. Regarding trigger point release  Chaitow compares trigger point with fire alarm. Trigger points are manifestation of some underline abnormality.  Simply ‘releasing’ the trigger point without treating the underlying cause may not produce long term relief, may produce trigger points elsewhere.  A more complete approach should include postural correction, ergonomics and prevention of overuse.
  6. 6. Suggested Indications  Trigger points: Releases trigger points  Pain of muscular origin, e.g. muscular component of acute spinal pain: for analgesia, control of muscle spasm.  Musculoskeletal pains e.g. osteoarthritis: works like pain killers, provides temporary relief
  7. 7.  Referred pains: works like pain killers, provides temporary relief  Pathologies of soft tissue origins: e.g. tennis elbow, plantar fascitis, shin splints- appears to improve tensigrity, accelerates healing
