Of course all manual therapists treat this problem. The problem we all have treating this muscle tension is it’s hard work.
To loosen up the upper border of a moderately hypertonic trapezius muscle can take a good 5 – 10 minutes of hard work. And that’s per side.
By using dry needling to loosen the 2 & sometimes 3 trigger points commonly found in the belly of the muscle you can achieve the same results in 5-7 minutes.
The beauty of dry needling this very commonly tight muscle is that you can leave the needles in situ while you work on the other areas associated with trapezii tension; the thoracic spine, interscapular muscles or use the time to catch up on your notes.
Save yourself time & avoid injuring your hands by learning how to use dry needling.
