The Twitch – Members’ Edition (November 2017)

I’m loving the new Membership Site, even if I say so myself 🙂

The reason I love it so much is because of the way it’s set up and how it’s encouraged so many of you to contact me and each other. You’ve been great at asking questions about how to get the best out of your dry needling training and the Membership Site.

I’ve had more questions asking for advice and help in the last week than I’ve had in about 3 years on the old Membership platform.

Here are our TOP Questions this month…

  • Antony wanted to know what are the precautions for dry needling diabetic patients and whether we need to refer these patients to their GP first. This is a great question because my answer doesn’t just apply to diabetic patients. You could apply my answer to others who are on blood thinners for example.
  • Allan asked if he could apply Dry Needling to a stretched muscle rather having the muscle off stretch. As many of you know, we generally recommend placing a muscle off stretch before needling but there are some cases in which I would not have the muscle in a relaxed state.
  • Stacey brought up the topic of whether it was safe to use Dry Needling when a patient has a pacemaker. Hopefully, my answer will allay any fears about using Dry Needling in these patients.
  • Chris has bought some Hwato 500 pack needles, 5 needles per 1 guide tube. He said that he had used similar needles before but they used to have a larger blister pack to enable easier access to the needles. Unfortunately, this new packaging makes it awkward to reload and handle the needles safely. He wanted some advice about what he to do. Unfortunately, I hadn’t used this type of packaging before, but maybe you have and could help Chris out.

These questions are just some of the great questions asked in the membership area this month. If you’d like to see the answers to all these questions, as well as ask your own, then the easiest way is to join us in the private membership area.
