Dry-Needling Revisited

Quite a while back, I talked about dry-needling and how it can be used to treat muscular trigger points. I was finally able to experience what this felt like on my internship at FirstLight Hospital when one of the outpatient therapists performed trigger point release on my upper trapezius muscles. It definitely felt weird at first, but good at the same time. The next day I was a little sore, and that just felt like muscle soreness as you would get after a hard workout in those muscles.

On my internship at Glacial Ridge, I got to experience a little bit different type of dry-needling. My Clinical Instructor, Mike, was certified in a dry-needling that addressing pain more specifically with the use of electrical stimulation. So, we tried it out on my hand as if we were treating C7 radiculopathy, which is a type of nerve pain or altered sensation that comes from the neck and can go down to the middle finger. It actually felt pretty good, my hands were pretty boney so you could definitely feel the needle moving around more than when I had dry-needling to my upper traps.
