What is Dry Needling a the Chiropractic Professionals of Columbia?
Dry needling is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points (painful knots in muscles), tendons, ligaments or around nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in painful musculoskeletal conditions. Dry needling in not acupuncture or Oriental Medicine; that is, it does not have the purpose of altering the flow of energy (“Qi”) along traditional Chinese meridians for treatment of disease. In fact, dry needling is a modern, science-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, shoulder impingement, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, knee pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis or low back pain. Dry needling at the Chiropractic Professionals is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Like any treatment, there are possible complications. While complications are rare in occurrence, they are real and must be considered prior to giving consent for treatment.
Risk for Dry Needling: What You Need To Know!!
Dry Needling could cause Drowsiness, Tiredness, or Dizziness, occurs after treatment in small number of patients (1-3%) and if affected, you are advised not to drive. Minor bleeding or bruising occurs after dry needling in 15-20% of treatments and is considered normal. Temporary pain during needling occurs in 60-70% of treatments. Existing symptoms can get worse after treatment in less than 3%; however, this not necessarily a “bad” sign. Fainting can occur in certain patients (.3%), particularly at the first treatment session when needling head or neck regions. The most serious risk with dry needling is accidental puncture of a lung (pneumothorax) in .01%. ` If this were to occur, it may likely require a chest x-ray and no further treatment. The symptoms of shortness of breath may last for several days to weeks. A more severe puncture can require hospitalization and re-inflation of the lung
