Today marks 4 weeks! I had PT this morning and we are pulling out all the stops in trying to help me recover after this revision!
Dry needling today was definitely and experience. Typically dry needling doesn’t bother me….other than sweating, but today was a different experience. I don’t typically notice when my PT is needling, but I had some major twitch responses today. I didn’t have as many knots as pre-op, but the ones I did have had some unique responses. We did my quad, pectinius, adductor, and glute. I had some histamine response to the needling today too which isn’t normal.
So, I sit here in my dual ice machine (Cothera and IceMan) hoping that the ice and compression with the soreness from dry needling today!
