The differences between acupuncture and therapeutic dry needling truly outweigh their similarities. Dry needle treatment, also known as Therapeutic Dry Needling (TDN) or dry needle therapy uses filiform needles to treat western medical neuromusculoskeletal diagnoses at myofascial points. TDN needle point selection is based on diagnosis, palpation and functional testing, and general foundational belief is rooted in the science of the nervous system governing homeostasis in the body, and the methodology of affecting this through needling myofascial points. Acupuncture uses similar filiform needles to treat virtually any diagnosis in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Point selection in traditional acupuncture is based on TCM diagnosis and is focused on balancing energy meridians. The overriding foundational belief in acupuncture rests in balancing energy flow or Qi in the body through these meridians.

Therapeutic Dry Needling vs Acupuncture

Dry needling and acupuncture involve the insertion of thin needles into specific parts of the body, but the similarities stop there. During acupuncture treatment, needles are inserted into points along meridian lines. Meridian lines are based on traditional Chinese medicine and represent flow of energy to the organs of the body. Acupuncture is based on the idea and restoring proper flow of energy and balance throughout the body.

Dry needling and acupuncture involve the insertion of thin needles into specific parts of the body, but the similarities stop there. During acupuncture treatment, needles are inserted into points along meridian lines. Meridian lines are based on traditional Chinese medicine and represent flow of energy to the organs of the body. Acupuncture is based on the idea and restoring proper flow of energy and balance throughout the body.

During acupuncture, the needles are usually left in place for 30 minutes or more. It is most often used to treat a host of external and internal ailments, including anxiety, digestive issues, stress, skin problems, insomnia, and chronic pain.
Dry needle treatment is a new and expanding treatment based on Western medicine premises. Therapeutic dry needling treatment was developed in the 1980’s, and categorically emerged in this century. During dry needling treatment needles are inserted into tight muscles, trigger points, musculotendinous junctions, fascia and other damaged or affected tissues.

During dry needling, the needles may be inserted and immediately removed, pistoned in and out of the tissues, or left in place for a period. This all depends on the goals of the clinician during the TDN session. When needles are inserted into these pathological target tissues, they elicit a response that increases local blood flow, stimulated the autonomic nervous system, and invokes the inflammatory healing systems of the body in the treated area.

Summary: What is the difference between Dry Needling and Acupuncture?

Dry needling and acupuncture are similar in only one way. They both use needles. That is it! The philosophy behind, the approach, and the goals are different and unique between each of these healing modalities. If you are unsure of which treatment you are receiving, please inform yourself, this will ensure you have the best chance to receive the treatment approach you are looking for and will improve the chances of reaching your goals!

What is Achilles Tendinosis

Achilles tendinitis and Achilles tendinosis, are very common overuse injuries of the Achilles tendon that we want you to know more about.

Achilles tendonitis occurs in about 10 percent of runners, but this condition also occurs commonly in dancers, gymnasts, jumpers, and tennis players. Road running produces forces up to eight times the body’s weight, placing significant repetitive stress on the Achilles tendon for prolonged periods. While Achilles tendinitis most commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs, it’s also common in middle-aged weekend warriors who play sports occasionally, but with great efforts, such as tennis, softball, or basketball.

Tendonitis in athletes is usually caused or aggravated by training errors such as incorrect running technique or wearing improperly fitting shoes; however, it is also related to overpronation (arch collapsing) of the foot and myofascial tightening of the gastrocnemius-soleus (calf muscle) complex. Achilles tendonitis is also common when persons first take up athletic activities.

What is the Achilles Tendon For

The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the human body. It is the band of dense connective tissue that joins from calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to the heel bone. This amazing tissue endures strain and risks rupture from running, jumping, and sudden acceleration or deceleration. Because most Achilles tendon injuries take place in sports and there has been a general increase in popularity of sporting activities, the number and incidence of the Achilles tendon overuse injuries and complete, spontaneous ruptures has increased during the last decades.

Treatment methods for Achilles tendon pain vary among doctors and therapists and include rest, immobilization, cryotherapy, NSAID medication, taping, manual therapy, stretching and more. Certified Sports Chiropractors are uniquely suited to evaluate and treat Achilles Tendonitis.

Sports Chiropractic Specialist, Dr. Jonathan Wilhelm of Pro Chiropractic in Bozeman and Belgrade, Montana demonstrates cutting-edge treatment to help resolve Achilles Tendonitis quickly and completely.

Lower Back Pain After an Accident

Autоmоbilе accidents оссur every day. Unfortunately, dаmаgе from these сrаѕhеѕ isn’t аlwауѕ limitеd tо thе vehicles invоlvеd. On thе liѕt of соmmоn injuriеѕ саuѕеd bу car accidents, back injuriеѕ rank high. In fact, lower back pain is the second most common symptom following a car accident! Evеn a seemingly minor crash can cause back injuriеѕ, in раrt bесаuѕе the humаn bоdу simply isn’t dеѕignеd tо absorb thе jаrring imрасt of a car accident, еvеn a lоw-ѕрееd collision. And in turn, even a ѕееminglу minоr bасk injurу саn have a ѕignifiсаnt imрасt оn уоur daily life. Thiѕ аrtiсlе lооkѕ аt соmmоn types of bасk injuriеѕ саuѕеd bу саr ассidеntѕ, hоw those injuriеѕ might bе treated, аnd what to dо if уоu’vе suffered a bасk injurу after a car crash.

Tуреѕ of Back Injuries

The ѕрinе can be dividеd into three diѕtinсt аrеаѕ: cervical vеrtеbrае (nесk), thоrасiс vertebrae (upper bасk), аnd lumbar vertebrae (lоwеr back). Eасh ѕесtiоn оf the ѕрinаl соrd and itѕ vеrtеbrае аrе ѕurrоundеd bу diѕсѕ, muѕсlеѕ, tеndоnѕ, ligаmеntѕ, аnd nеrvеѕ, which if injured can cause vаrуing dеgrееѕ оf раin frоm mild tо debilitating, from tеmроrаrу tо реrmаnеnt.

Thoracic Spine Injuriеѕ

Gеnеrаllу, injuries to thе thoracic ѕрinе are thе most serious. Thе thоrасiс ѕрinе, or uрреr bасk, соnnесtѕ tо thе ribs аnd сhеѕt region. Sрrаinѕ and frасturеѕ in this аrеа аrе primarily caused by high velocity аutо accidents, аnd may rеѕult in permanent nеrvе damage. Because of it’s location between the other oreas, we find thopracic spine injuries following automobile crashes to be the most problematic to treat, and very likely to have longer recoveries in general.

Lumbаr Sрinе Injuriеѕ

Thе lumbаr spine is соmрriѕеd оf thе five lаrgеѕt vertebrae аnd thе ѕtrоngеѕt of thе muscles nесеѕѕаrу tо provide stability fоr thе ѕрinе. Thеrеfоrе, a ѕрrаin or ѕtrаin tо thе lumbаr ѕрinе can рrоvе tо bе particularly painful. A ѕрrаin involves асtuаl dаmаgе tо thе ligaments, whilе a strain is a ѕtrеtсhing оf the tеndоnѕ оr muѕсlеѕ. Eithеr injurу mау rеѕult in limitеd mоvеmеnt, ѕwеlling, bruising, and tеndеrnеѕѕ, and mау ѕеvеrеlу imрасt уоur аbilitу to реrfоrm your daily асtivitiеѕ.

Hеrniаtеd Discs

Sоmе car ассidеnt victims experience herniated discs. Diѕсѕ are the gel-filled сuѕhiоnѕ that separate thе vеrtеbrае and рrоtесt and provide movement to thе spine. A herniated disc оссurѕ whеn disc material iѕ diѕрlасеd. Often, thе hеrniаtеd diѕс thеn places pressure оn thе ѕрinаl соrd оr its surrounding and exiting nerves. Suddеn and intеnѕе раin in thе lоwеr rеgiоn оf the bасk and numbness in one or both thе legs аrе thе mоѕt commonly rероrtеd ѕуmрtоmѕ of herniated discs.

Sрinаl Cord Injuries

The mоѕt ѕеriоuѕ bасk injuries invоlvе thе spinal соrd. Suсh injuriеѕ range from bruiѕing or excessive pressure tо реrmаnеnt dаmаgе tо thе ѕрinаl соrd аnd nеrvеѕ — lеаding tо lоng term diѕаbilitу. Spinal соrd injuriеѕ оftеn result in tоtаl or раrtiаl раrаlуѕiѕ, lоѕѕ оf fееling in сеrtаin аrеаѕ of thе body, аnd loss оf reflex funсtiоn. Further, depending on the tуре оf injurу or trеаtmеnt rесеivеd, viсtimѕ of spinal соrd injuriеѕ may also bе аt riѕk for ѕесоndаrу mеdiсаl рrоblеmѕ, such as infесtiоn duе tо ѕurgеrу, blood clots, bleeding, pneumonia, аnd spinal fluid lеаkѕ.

Auto Accident Lower Back Pain Treatments

Treatments for lower back pain following a car crash will vary depending on the type and severity of your injury. Some injuries require advanced imaging, like MRI, CT or X-ray and others can be diagnosed properly through a thorough musculoskeletal examination which includes palpation, range of motion testing, postural examination, functional movement analysis, and orthopedic testing. A majority of lower back pain injuries following a car crash accident can be managed and treated by a chiropractor certified and trained in whiplash and spinal injury protocols. The low back pain chiropractors at Pro Chiropractic in Bozeman and Belgrade, Montana are skilled and trained to properly evaluate, diagnose, refer and treat car accident patients who are experiencing low back pain. Additionally, they can co-manage your treatment with on-site physical therapy and massage therapy at their sister physical therapy clinics, Pro Physio.

Backpack Safety

With a new school year starting soon, I thought it was important to spread the word on backpack safety. These days, children come home with backpacks full of gargantuan textbooks and binders overflowing with assignments and homework; which is great from an academic standpoint, but detrimental from a physical health point of view. In this blog post, you will learn how to properly wear a backpack, how to properly pack a backpack and the potential safety risks associated with incorrectly wearing a backpack.

It may be a struggle to get your kids to wear their backpack on both shoulders, especially if they are in high school; but in order to maintain proper posture and avoid injuries, it is imperative that children of all ages utilize both shoulder straps. Also, when purchasing a backpack, make sure that the shoulder straps are padded and adjustable. The extra padding helps take pressure off the shoulders with heavier weight and the straps should be adjusted so the back of the backpack sits right up against your child’s back and the bottom of the backpack sits no lower than 4 inches from the waist to avoid hyperextension of the lumbar spine (low back). If the backpack has a chest and/or hip strap, encourage your child to use them. Use of these additional straps helps distribute the weight of the backpack more evenly and promote better posture.

When packing a backpack, always put the heavier items, like textbooks and large binders, in the back, and lighter items, like spiral notebooks and folders, in the front. Doing this allows the heavier weight to be closer to your child’s body limiting the change in the center of gravity. Be sure to utilize the pockets of the backpack to further distribute the weight of the load. The total weight of the backpack should not exceed 10% of your child’s body weight. Another important thing to remember…keep all sharp items, such as scissors, away from the body! Believe it or not, an improperly worn or overweight backpack can injure your child. Carrying a backpack with one strap instead of two can cause potentially serious posture changes which can lead to chronic back pain into adulthood. Wearing the backpack too low on the back can cause hyperextension of the lumbar spine which can lead to spine and joint degeneration in the low back region. “According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in 2013 nearly 22,000 strains, sprains, dislocations and fractures from backpacks were treated in hospital emergency rooms, physicians’ offices and clinics.” (www.aota.org)

Here are a few warning signs that indicate your child’s backpack is too heavy:

  • Pain when wearing the backpack
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms or legs
  • Difficulty when putting on or taking off the backpack
  • Red strap marks over the front of the shoulders
  • Any change in side to side posture while wearing the backpack

If your child complains of back, neck, or shoulder pain, especially associated with wearing their backpack, it is imperative to have them evaluated by a chiropractor as soon as possible to prevent any long-term effects such as spine/joint degeneration and chronic pain.
