Supporting Dry Needlin by PT
 

As a supplement to manual release of tense muscles, I was grateful for the tool of dry needling to help me keep walking before hip replacement. Likewise, after hip replacement surgery, the use of combined manual scar release and dry needling for scar release diminished my pain quickly while simultaneously improving my range of motion. Frankly, I was amazed at the immediate effectiveness of this procedure, and would not hesitate to seek it if needed in the future.
