What is Dry Needling?
Discussion Myofascial pain is pain from muscle or fascia, and usually associated with myofascial trigger points which are “…a highly localized, hyperirritable spot in a palpable, taut band of skeletal muscle fibers.” Trigger points are common reasons people, especially adults, seek relief in primary care or pain clinic settings. Athletes may also complain of pain caused by them. They are treated in a variety of ways, none of which used as a single method is successful for all individuals.

Teardown: Inside the Neurometrix Quell TENS device
A TENS device for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation wraps around the upper calf much like a wristwatch wraps around the wrist. Here are some of its operational secrets.

None of us here are diabetic so we can’t say whether the Quell actually does what its manufacturer — Neurometrix Inc. of Waltham, Mass. — claims it can do. What we can do is describe how the Quell is supposed to work and what we found when we disassembled it...
