My lower back hurts on and off all the time. I thought it was going to start a spasm that would cause me tremendous pain so I called my doctor.
Today I began Physical Therapy. It appears I am out of alignment. I thought my right side was longer than my left, but it’s not the case. This misalignment is from where my pain stems.
My therapist started to realign my joints today. And… this is a big one, I got Needles.
Dry needling is a treatment performed by skilled, trained physical therapists, certified in the procedure. A thin monofilament needle penetrates the skin and treats underlying muscular trigger points for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
The relief was immediate after this simple procedure. It’s not like acupuncture where the needles are left in for a bit. These are put in and then taken back out. It almost felt like pressure being released in my sorest spot.
I will do this 3x/week for 6 weeks. I’ll be getting exercises too. Movement is lubricant. So keep on moving.
