Author: Richard SymisterDry Needling My Hip TFL the Day After Dead Lifting
My right TFL (tensor fascia lata, the top portion of our ITB) is a little bit stiff the day after multiple reps of Olympic bar deadlifting.
Let’s practice some Dry Needling … on myself — going right to that TFL.
Step 1: functional movement screen (I feel some mild discomfort at the bottom part of my squat)
Step 2: palpate and review my landmarks (I took the liberty of using magic marker on my hip)
Step 3: glove up, clean the area (yes yes, I totally skipped this step working on myself)
Step 4: apply dry needle
Step 5: lay back and let the needles go to work (15 minutes)
Step 6: remove needles
Step 7: rescreen. (my squats are much more fluid with less restrictions)
Heal. Move. NEEDLE. Evolve.
