Conditions Treated by Trigger Point Dry-Needling (TDN)
Hip And Leg Pain
Gluteus Minimus Trigger Points Causing Leg Pain (Sciatica)
Patients generally feel leg pain that follows a posterolateral (behind the leg) distribution that extends to the knee area and sometimes all the way to the ankle. It is frequently one sided and “mimics” sciatic pain.
The pain is described as being deep, dull and achy stemming from the lateral gluteal area which is very tender to palpation. It can become intolerably persistent and severe at times.
Numbness, tingling, loss of sensation and weakness are NOT present (true radicular symptoms caused by nerve root compression).
