Twitch Dry Needling Video Clip. Episode 35 : Dry Needling Soleus and the Sub-talar Joint Non Members

This video describes how I apply dry needling for the patients with heel pain  then follow up with a great manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.


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 someone with heel pain? Obviously the main culprits are Solleus, Gastrocs, FDB, QP. Out of those, the one that I always like is Medial Soleus. A really nice muscle to needle for this problem medial heel pain, gets great results. Follow that up with a manual therapy technique to the subtalar joint.

Get you to lie on your side for me. Facing away, not much happening at the subtalar joint in terms of pronation and supination. Probably 5 degrees pronation, supination 20 degrees. Of course at the subtalar joint, you’ve got eversion and inversion occurring. So articulation of this joint is great for heel pain and a follow up for the soleus dry needling.

So what we are going to do here is do a cross handed technique over that subtalar joint to get some nice articulation here to get it out of compression. Obviously this is the main problem here. A lot of compression in this joint and it doesn’t allow for much buffer because of those ranges of motion. So a great follow up after you’ve needled the soleus for heel pain.

Hope that helps.
