Local gluteal spasm response

In this video you can clearly see a local twitch response in the gluteus muscle.

Ultrasound-guided dry needling to improve safety

In some cases, such as in patients taking anticoagulants, the use of ultrasound-guided procedures can help us to avoid injuring important vessels and increase precision on the muscle to be treated, since dry needling is a relative contraindication.

Calculation of distance to trigger point

In this video you´ll see two very interesting things. On the one hand, as in the case of deep muscles, the ultrasound allows us not only to orient the needle and see the local LTRs but also calculate the size of needle we need, bearing in mind that when we feel we are going to compress and therefore need smaller needle size. This video is a demonstration of something that we usually do and that can be very helpful for people who are just getting started.

Dry needling Extensor hallux longus

In this video you will see the ultrasound recording of the short axis approach of the extensor hallucis longus muscle.
