Onecoloroptions forembroidery What You Should Know About Dry Needling Dry needling is a new treatment for muscle, nerve, and connective tissue pain that has proven effective for a wide variety of patients. PinnaclePhysicalTherapy logo identity -R7

How Does It Work? There have been a number of recent medical studies that help prove dry needling stimulates biochemical and physiological changes in the body which help reduce pain. Dry needling is not synonymous with the term acupuncture. Acupuncture is derived from Oriental Medicine with the purpose of redirecting the flow of energy (“Qi”) along traditional Chinese meridians for the treatment of disease. Dry needling is a modern, evidence-based intervention for the treatment of pain and dysfunction in some muscle, bone, joint, and nerve conditions. The term “Dry” is used because there is no medication or fluid being injected into the body. Electric Dry Needling may be used by connecting electrodes to the needles and stimulating the tissue at low frequencies. This is an invasive technique which will only be considered if a patient has sub-acute or chronic symptoms which have not responded favorably to conservative methods.

The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

Are you like many people, with an aching back at the end of the day or worried about lifting an object due to your back going out? You are not alone, over 80% of the population will suffer back pain at one time or another in their life according to CDC data. It is the price we pay for walking upright on two legs. However, the majority of back pain is non-specific, meaning that there is not a primary cause, such as a fracture or disc protrusion. How tight hip ligaments can cause low back pain Your hip joints have to travel through a very large range of motion. There are thick Y shaped ligaments that surround the hip joints called the iliofemoral ligaments, which provide support. However, with prolonged sitting over weeks, months or years, these ligaments shrink, reducing the natural movement of the hip joints. Whenever you walk, instead of your hips moving naturally, the ligaments yank and pull on the pelvis, which is attached to your spine. This causes inflammation, strain and pain to the back muscles. Furthermore, the loss of hip motion can even cause your pelvis to tilt, altering the posture of your spine and increasing strain. By improving hip mobility, back pain can typically be relieved quite quickly. When you suffer from back pain, make sure that you have an expert look at your movement. Even though your back may ache, it may not be the source of your problem. Call us today to discover how our medical professionals can pinpoint the cause of your pain, relieve it quickly and teach you how to maintain a healthy spine. Are Your Hips Killing Your Back?

How Healthy Are Your Hips?

Try these simple tests to see if your hips are causing your back pain You can easily check your hip motion by doing the following tests. If you discover your hip motion is limited, you feel pain or strong discomfort, it’s time to get your hips checked by our physical therapy professionals. Try these tests and see how mobile your hips are:

Hip Mobility Test • Lie on your back with your legs straight out. • Cross one ankle above the other knee cross legged in a figure 4 position. • Keep your ankle pressed on the other leg, but now lower the raised knee to the side. Does it lower close to the ground? • Repeat on the other side and see if there is a difference. • This might indicate a hip motion problem and cause pain in the back or hip discomfort on that side.

Hip Squatting Test • Keep your knees parallel facing forward. • Squat down as far as you can keeping your feet and heels flat on the floor. • If you feel a lot of pressure in your knees or calf muscles, you could have a hip movement problem. • Try again in front of a mirror. Does your body want to go to one side? This can indicate a hip motion problem on one side.
