Participants will be 18-59 years old who are recruited through a convenience sample from the UMHB/Belton community. There will be a randomized control trial consisting of three groups. Each participant will be assigned based on their order of entry to the study group assignment and then randomly organized via computer generation into 3 groups of 20 participants including a control group, a dry needling group (DN), and a dry needling E-stim group (DN-ES), resulting in approximately 60 total participants. Participants in the DN and DN-ES groups will be treated four times; at weeks 0, 2, 4 and 6 of the study. Data will be collected at weeks 4, 6 and 12 in all groups.
Interventions per group:
DN: 20-30 seconds of DN per trigger point in each involved trapezius muscle, needles rest in situ 10 min, needles removed.
DN-ES: 20-30 seconds of DN per trigger point (TrP) in each involved trapezius muscle, DC ES attached to needles crossing the most reactive TrP and current set to strong, but comfortable intensity at 10 MHz for 10 min, needles removed.

First, we aim to determine if there is a difference in the rate of improvement, as measured by the Neck Disability Index (NDI) and Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), across a 6 week treat...
trigger point dry needling with intramuscular electrical stimulation vs trigger point dry needling
Hypothesis The application of intramuscular electrostimulation will be more effectiveness than the dry needling in myofascial trigger points treatment. Objetives: To determine the ...
An experimental study will be conducted to evaluate the effect of a single dry needling session, compared to a sham needling session, on surface EMG activity (signal amplitude and frequenc...
This is a randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of Fu's subcutaneous needle (FSN) and Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) on chronic neck pain by using more ob...
To determine the changes produced by trigger point dry needling (TrP-DN) of sternocleidomastoid in patients with neck pain, and to observe how it might modify cervical motor control (CMC).
Stroke is one of leading causes of disability in western countries. A variety of rehabilitation programs for the treatment of patients post stroke have been proposed. We describe the outcomes of a 49-...
To assess the effectiveness of adding dry needling (DN) to an exercise program on pain intensity and disability in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
To evaluate the effects and complications related to use of mitomycin C (MMC) as an adjunctive therapy in bleb needling.
There are some records about the needling and moxibustion sensations in Chinese ancient medical literature, in which, the concept of ( arrival) and its relationship with the production of therapeutic...
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Recorded electrical responses from muscles, especially the neck muscles or muscles around the eyes, following stimulation of the EAR VESTIBULE.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Diagnosis of disease states by recording the spontaneous electrical activity of tissues or organs or by the response to stimulation of electrically excitable tissue.
The use of specifically placed small electrodes to deliver electrical impulses across the SKIN to relieve PAIN. It is used less frequently to produce ANESTHESIA.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
