Athletes tend to push their bodies with rigorous training schedules without sufficient rest in between. This results in severe muscle strain, which can affect their athletic performance. Dry needling can be used as a solution in such cases. It is a therapy used by physiotherapists, where ultra-fine needles are inserted into (myofascial trigger points) sensitive knots that form in muscles, ligaments, tendons, ligaments or near nerves. The aim is to stimulate healing for various painful musculoskeletal conditions.
