Most of us sit too much and this contributes to severe weakening of the back and torso muscles which are needed for a healthy back. Performance is offering dry needling for your aches and pains. Dry needling utilizes a solid filaform needle. No substances are injected, therefore the technique is called ‘dry needling’. Trigger points are hyper-irritable spots in a taut band of a muscle.

Physical therapists performing this procedure have advanced training and certification in the use of trigger point dry needling.
