One Response to “Trigger Point Dry Needling- FAQ”

  1. Gayle Rockelli 07. Dec, 2011 at 8:32 AM #

    I had a cluster of trigger points in my thigh that had bothered me for years. Other professionals worked on me manually and could not release this stubborn area of TrPs. Tamar Issa suggested dry needling and I agreed. What a relief! When the needle hit the trigger point mass I felt a small zap and nothing more. I was a little bit sore in that area for a day or two. The dry needling had accomplished what more than three years of other treatments by other providers could not. I could now walk without pain and have been pain free in that are ever since.
