Trigger Point Dry Needling is NOT Synkineedling™The muscles of the face consist of 17 paired muscles and 1 unpaired muscle. The muscles of the face differ from muscles anywhere else in the body because they originate from bone and insert into the skin. The facial muscles possess a three-dimensional relationship to one another meaning layers of muscles. These muscle layers are interconnected by fascial tissue that can form adhesions and therefore interconnect one muscle’s activation to another facial muscle.Synkineedling™ is a technique pioneered by The Center for Facial and Functional Recovery co-founder Jodi Barth, PT. It is a dry needling technique used to release fascial adhesions, allowing the muscle to move with decreased restriction. The specialized technique uses a single use, sterile, monofilament needle and can be done under ultrasound guidance. By needling through the adhesions in the fascial tissue, you can effectively break up areas of restriction allowing the facial muscles to move more freely and efficiently which can improve neuromuscular synkinesis – unwanted movements. Ultrasound assessment of facial muscles experiencing synkinesis has shown that there is tissue conflation (flattening) as well as fascial adhesions that restrict mobility and interconnect activity. Trigger point dry needling is a treatment that healthcare providers use for pain and movement issues associated with myofascial trigger points. With this technique, a provider inserts thin needles into or near your trigger points. The needles stimulate your muscles, which causes them to contract or twitch. This helps relieve pain and improve your range of motion. ... See MoreSee Less
