Our client, Patricia Boulet of Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness Institute, is becoming certified in Dry Needling!
Once certified, Patricia will be able to offer relief to patients suffering from pain caused by Headaches, Neck/Back pain, Tendinitis, Muscle Spasms, Hip/Knee pain, Muscle strains, Fibromyalgia, Golfer’s Elbow, and other injuries.
Dry Needling is a technique unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction. It involves a series of needle advances to the different trigger points in the muscles.
Most patients who receive Dry Needling do not report having pain. Sometimes, patients will feel a muscle “twitch” similar to a tingling sensation. This “twitch” is a sign that the needle is releasing the trigger point.
Many people compare Dry Needling to Acupuncture when in fact, the two techniques are much different. Dry Needling is based on western neuroanatomy and modern scientific studies. Acupuncture is based on theories of ancient Chinese medicine. The two techniques do, however, use the same tool; a solid needle filament.
Keep up the good work Patricia!
