Dry needling therapy (DNT)
Dry needling is a treatment technique using a sterile, single use, fine filament needle that is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knot). Dry needling assists with decreasing local muscular pain and improving your function throughout restoring the muscle's natural ability to lengthen and shorten.
Rigid and kinesiology taping
Rigid taping is used to restrict movement by providing very firm support. In the acute stage of healing, support of ligament sprains, muscle strains, joint instability and inflammation is beneficial with this form of taping. Kinesiology taping still provides support of injured tissues, but a certain amount of joint or muscle movement is allowed. This microscopic tissue lifting action can stimulate both lymphatic flow and blood flow, thereby reducing swelling, bruising and pain.
