Transcript

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.

Any lateral elbow pain, of course we’re going to have a look at the extensors of the wrist and fingers, but brachioradialis, of course, is a target muscle for trigger points in there. They’re going to refer around the lateral elbow and into the radial side of the wrist.

So needling brachioradialis, of course, a really important skill, and very useful. Get some great results with anyone with lateral elbow pain. Well, what can you do other than that as far as a manual therapy technique? Well of course, gapping the radiohumeral joint, very important right here just over the knee, really effective to open out that radiohumeral joint with a straight elbow just like here. There you go in different degrees of flexion, but not too much flexion.

Otherwise, you take that limit off there. That’s a great follow-up therapy technique for needling to the brachioradialis followed by gapping of the radiohumeral joint. Hope that helps.
