Dry Needling Can Improve Your Abs

Just in time for swim suit season...

A study found that dry needling the lumbar mutifidi can improve the contraction of the transverse abdominals.

  • "This study suggests that application of DN to LM was accompanied by a decreased resting thickness and an increased contraction thickness of the TrA in asymptomatic participants."

Sherrington would call it reciprocal inhibition. Janda would call lower crossed syndrome. Ron Hruska would call it an over extended, over inhaled system.

Regardless of the theory, I see this work all the time in the clinic. Back pain and movement can be improved immediately with dry needling.
