Hi. Welcome to the Twitch Dry Needling video training series where I’ll show you a fantastic dry needling technique followed by a manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.
These Dry Needling Techniques should only be applied by trained therapists who have completed an accredited course.
Okay, this is going to be a really nice technique for anyone with an ankle inversion sprain. What do you do? So of course, you’re going to needle around the ankle itself, around the perimeter of the swelling. Probably look at peroneus longus and tib ant of course, but the cream on top really must look at biceps femoris. If you have a think about the mechanics of the injury when you’ve got an inversion sprain it’s definitely going to affect that lateral chain. That lateral side of the hamstrings, and all the way up through the shin and up into the thigh. So needling biceps femoris, in that mid belly area is going to be really effective and get you that extra bit of help for someone with a ankle inversion sprain. So that’s going to be very nice. Great, excellent.
Nice twitches there, okay. So what else do you do as a manual therapy technique after that? Well, you can grab hold of the head of the fibula at the superior tib fib joint. Of course, we’ve got to be careful about the common peroneal nerve in here and in various degrees of flexion. We can do some articulation of that tib fib joint just like this, and really get some nice movement because it’ll often be a restriction of movement in that superior tib fib joint associated with some tension and trigger points in that lateral side in that biceps femoris, hope that helps.
