For a patient to achieve optimum benefits soon after diagnosis, practitioners recommend three visits per week initially.
However, depending on the severity of your condition, the number of times you may need to see your physio will vary.
Dry needling uses a sterile single use needle and is based on trigger point therapy – uses small needles that target the pain point areas to relieve tension by releasing trigger points (knots in muscle).
When is dry needling recommended?
- Help release myofascial trigger points (muscle knots)
- Assist with pain management
- Restore movement at a joint if limited by myofascial trigger points.
Does it hurt?
You’ll feel a mild tingly sensation as the needle inserts and withdraws. The insertion of the needle should not be uncomfortable when performed by a physiotherapist. Patients don’t report any discomfort during needle insertion.
While Physiotherapist do perform massage therapy, it’s only a small portion of the treatment we give patients. At Tweak.Health we still prioritise manual therapy and exercise prescriptions.
So, what really IS the difference between the two?
⭐ MASSAGE THERAPY
Massage therapy is commonly used for immediate relaxation of pain and muscle spasms. While they don’t actually provide primary care after injuries, they can be a part of an overall treatment plan.
Physiotherapy is geared more towards rehabilitating muscle, joint and nerve function. We work to restore the body due to an injury, disease or motion limitations.
A physiotherapy appointment often involves an assessment followed by diagnosis and treatment. On the other hand, massage therapy alone doesn’t require such things.
You may feel the need to see your massage therapist weekly as you’re not solving the root of the issue (e.g. bad posture, injuries, disease). But your Physio can help to explain the pathology or reason why your issue developed in the first place, and this has the potential to help you recover and move on💪
Needless to say, you may benefit from both, and sometimes simultaneously! Whichever you choose, make sure that it’s appropriate to what you need, and visit a qualified health professional or your local GP.
