This week our resident athlete, Gines went for a session of Dry Needling at Head to Toe Health Care in Hampton. For those of you that are unaware of dry needling please check out the video and description below:
What is Dry Needling?
Filament needles (similar to acupuncture) are inserted into the soft tissue to activate the healing process, resulting in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. Also known as a process of activating “trigger points.”It mechanically disrupts the integrity of the dysfunctional endplates within the trigger area.
Gines thoughts on Dry Needling:
Tried dry needling this week at Head To Toe Healthcare, surprisingly they do not hurt. We worked on relaxing my glutes, ‘honestly I didn’t expect to having needles in my arse Wednesday morning, but it worked, my afternoon run was a dream.’
