Twitch Dry Needling Video Clip. Episode 39 : DRY NEEDLING FOR ACUTE LOW BACK PAIN

This video describes how I apply dry needling for patients with acute low back pain then follow up with a great manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time.


Hi. Welcome to the Twitch Dry Needling video training series where I’ll show you a fantastic dry needling technique followed by a manual therapy technique to get great results for your patients every time

These Dry Needling Techniques should only be applied by trained therapists who have completed an accredited course.

Okay, what happens when you stub your toe? Well, the last thing that you want is someone to start prodding and poking your big toe and trying to make you feel better. Same thing with acute low back pain! Why do we straight away go to the lower back? Don’t go there, stay away from there, have a look at glute medius. That’s going to be a really nice muscle and important muscle to take the load off there.

Trigger points into that area often refer into the lower back and into that side of the leg in the buttock, which is going to get you some great results. But, what do you do as a manual therapy technique follow-up with that? There’s someone with acute low back pain. Of course, they’re lying on their side, which is really important, you don’t want them prone. Pop them up here, there, okay, that’s great!

All right, so, in this position we can articulate the thoracic and the lumbar spine, just in here, in that side-bending action, opening out the QL, thoracic erector spinae. Very nice technique to open out their area once you’ve needled the glute medius for someone with acute low back pain.

Hope that helps!
