What Conditions Can Be Treated? Shockwave Therapy (SWT) or Radial Shockwave Therapy (rSWT) can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, in particular, those involving areas where major connective tissue attaches to bone.
Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles and is supported by research. Dry Needling involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the region
of a “Trigger Point.” The aim of Dry Needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. Dry needling is an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin with very few side effects. Based on the Trigger Point theory, Dry Needling targets the discrete, irritable points in skeletal muscle and fascia, which, upon compression, are painful and can refer tenderness or radiate pain. When tissue is injured, whether by acute trauma or repetitive use, the body responds with inflammation to that area. In an effort to further protect itself, the damaged tissue contracts, resulting in a decrease in oxygen and the ability to remove toxins from the inflamed area. Left untreated, restriction in mobility can occur as scar tissue builds up around the muscles and tissues. Dry Needling can not only eliminate neuromuscular pain but also restore mobility and functionality. The Dry Needling technique utilizes very thin, solid filament needles, which are inserted into the knotted muscle to elicit a twitch response, resulting in a relaxation of muscle contraction. In addition, the produced immune response to the insertion of the needle affects a systemic reduction in inflammation all over the body, not just locally. It is termed ‘dry’ as no material is injected into the tissue. Coupon Corner
Common sites that can be successfully treated are: •Plantar Fasciitis, heel spurs & Achilles tendonitis •Patellar tendonitis, jumper’s knee & shin pain •Tennis or golfer’s elbow •Rotator cuff tendonitis & calcification (Shoulder)
Discover How To Live Pain Free! At Dynamic Rehab PhysicalTherapy, you will receive hands-on therapy treatments by our friendly, caring health experts during focused and individualized sessions. Research is accumulating in the use of SWT & rSWT. Evidence supporting its use has been published in high quality medical journals. The strongest evidence is for shoulder calcific tendinitis and plantar fasciitis, but satisfactory results have been published for other common musculotendinous problems that have “failed to respond” to other conservative treatment. SWT is a non-surgical option with results that match surgical outcomes, and should be considered when other treatment options have failed. •Trochanteric bursitis (Hip) •Trigger points in muscles •Stress fractures/shin splints, non union’s (delayed bone healing) •Morton’s Neuroma (Nerve)
