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 what do we do with those patients who’ve got that ball under the scapula, that knot that they feel. They’re inaccessible with manual therapy techniques but with dry needling we can needle the middle and lower fibers of the trapezius and get some great results followed up with a manual therapy technique. So finding this area is very easy of course the middle and lower fibers of trapezius T4-T12, spinous processes, and they attach just here those fibers to the medial under surface of the scapula spine just in here. So, identify the important landmarks, the spine and the scapula, the medial and lateral borders of the scapula, we can get some very nice results and having great twitches, you can do level one to five or the level six here.

But let’s have a look at what we’ll do as a manual therapy technique. Put that behind you there, winging the scapula up here like that and we’re going to look at T5 – 12 and of course spine of scapula is going to be your T3 landmark, so it’s going to be coming off here and inserting into that medial side of the spine of scapula on the under surface so we’re going to grab that medial side just here and we’re going to do some nice stretching right here of that spine of scapula away from the spinous processes in that thoracic spine. So that’s going to be a really nice technique as a follow up when you’ve got that knot under the scapula.

Hope that helps.
