Dry needling and the effects it has on leg muscles
Dry needling works to deactivate these sensitized nerves when the needle is inserted into your trigger point, a muscle spasm can occur in that location. This special type of muscle spasm is called a local twitch response. The local twitch response helps break the cycle of pain.
Dry needling is very effective when it comes to sore hamstrings, ITB ( Iliotibial band) and calves. Dry needling releases pain, tension and contraction in the muscle. If your a runner or bike rider there are muscles that you just can’t stretch and that’s where massage and dry needling can be very effective to release tension in the muscles. If your continuously training then you need to help the muscles by getting work done on them whether that be weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on your training schedule. Remember if you are training hard and intense you expect a lot out of your body, so replenish the oxygen and blood supply by getting work down on your body and you will then see the benefits of your hard work. If you train hard your body will let you when its sore or tired. If you keep pushing through the pain you will eventually tear muscles or do an injury, so be smart and look after your body, dry needling and massage will get you back on track.
