Dry Needling:

Dry needling is a very effective technique in the treatment of myofascial pain, specifically in the treatment of the so-called myofascial trigger points (MTP), reaching relaxation for the affected muscles and the reduction of local pain. Performed by physiotherapists specialized in myofascial pain.

 

Thermotherapy:

This is the application of heat or cold respectively. Heat reduces muscle tone and blood flow increases in the area of application. Cold reduces inflammation and slows the transmission of painful stimuli.

 

Electrotherapy:
