Neuromuscular Dry Needling
What Is Neuromuscular Dry Needling
NMDM is the treatment of trigger points for Myofascial Pain Syndrome MFPS.
How does Dry Needling work
Proper dry needling of a Myofascial trigger point will elicit a local twitch response LTR which is an involuntary spinal cord reflex in which the muscle fibres in the taut band of muscle contract. The LTR indicates the proper placement of a needle in the Trigger point. Dry Needling that elicits LTRs improves treatment outcomes for the patient, and may work by activating endogenous opioids.

Electro NMDN Treatment
Chronic Musculoskeletal pain can be alleviated by the use of an electro needling device, using low, mid and high frequencies. The rational for multiple frequencies is that the various groups of neuro transmitters are mobilised for central and peripheral release by different frequency ranges.
