Ankle Mobility Series Part 4: Functional Dry Needling (Instrument Assisted Deep Tissue Mobilization)
Still can't get your ankle flexibility back after a surgery or injury? Do you always feel like your calf is tight and limiting your squatting, running, or walking performance? Has traditional stretching, rolling, and massaging not worked? It may be time for me to help! Dry Needling may be what you need.
Dry needling uses a tiny needle to go into the tight muscle to lengthen it and can give you more range of motion, less pain, and more functional mobility. It also helps to reset your body's local chemical balance and promote healing of the area. Patients have had instantly improved walking mechanics, squatting range of motion, mobility, and pain.
For stubborn tightness, low-level intramuscular electrical stimulation can be used to help relax the muscle deep down at the site of tightness. Dry needling can be performed on most body parts.
