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, needling Peroneus Longus of course is synonymous with treating someone with an ankle inversion sprain. But what do you do as a followup manual therapy technique after you’ve done that? Well, let’s have a look at the needling technique. First I’ll show you a great manual therapy technique as a followup.

So, there’s your head of fibula, you’re going to find some trigger points all the way along here, in that mid portion right there. So, you’ve got mid portion right here. No problem, we’re going to get some nice technique in here, nice stretches. Excellent, okay. Referral into that lateral malleolus.

What else can you do as a followup technique? Well, always we can have a look at the superior tib-fib joint. But, why not look at down here as well, the inferior tib-fib joint? Use the heel of the hand of course. Cup the lateral malleolus and then we’re going to get some great articulation just in here of that inferior tib-fib joint. Really important when you’re treating someone with an ankle inversion sprain, just like this, and get great results.

Okay, hope that helps.
