Dry Needling for Back PainLike giving your muscle a "chill pill"
I had been having mid back pain on and off for years – I think related to being pregnant and all the ways that my body was shifted and strained carrying babies. I finally went to see a physical therapist who came highly recommended. She introduced me to dry needling as part of her treatment. She targeted several of the tight, sore muscles with her needle – which is – I think – basically an acupuncture needle. She sticks it in and goes pretty deep with it and then does this kind of twist. It was the most bizarre sensation because at a certain point, the muscle just completely relaxes. I walked out of there feeling like all the muscles that she treated had just been to the spa! I also did a series of exercises as part of my treatment that were designed to restore balance. On the whole the treatment worked and I’m so glad I broke-down and saw someone, but especially for immediate relief, dry needling works.
