Dry Needling for Muscle Tear and Scar Tissue

baseball player to undergo dry needling therapy

I saw an article about a professional baseball player looking to undergo dry needling therapy to treat some muscle tear on his left hip.

Here is an excerpt from the news article:

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will undergo a dry needling procedure on his left hip Monday in Philadelphia, Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said Sunday.

Tulowitzki’s leg muscle injuries have been well chronicled — a left quadriceps tendon tear in 2008, groin issues near the 2011 All-Star break and the one that required surgery in 2012. Although Tulowitzki spends lengthy periods before and after games on maintenance of the muscles, there is always the risk of injury based on the history.
