Needling in Dnipro

Needling or a needle aponeurotomy is one of the most effective soft tissue treatments, where thin needles are inserted into the skin and subcutaneous tissue to stimulate collagen and improve circulation. Also, needles can be inserted into the dense fibrous membranes surrounding the muscles, which are called aponeuroses. This method is used for pain and muscle spasms, to treat chronic pain and movement restrictions associated with aponeuroses.

What are the indications for a needle aponeurotomy?

Orthopedic surgeons use minimally invasive needling techniques to treat:

  • Dupuytren’s contracture,
  • Knott’s disease,
  • postoperative contractures,
  • carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of a nerve in the wrist),
  • pain syndrome associated with fibromyalgia,
  • pain syndrome associated with osteoarthritis.

To understand whether this treatment method can help in your case, you need to consult an orthopedic doctor. The doctor will conduct a diagnosis, and tell you about all the features of the procedure, and prices for the needle aponeurotomy.

How is a needle aponeurotomy procedure performed at N1 Clinic?

A needle aponeurotomy or needling is performed by an orthopedic surgeon who is trained in this specialized technique. The patient is placed on his back or stomach, depending on the problem area, and local anesthesia is given.

The doctor inserts thin needles into the aponeuroses along the muscle, where there are points of tension and pain, which are called trigger points. They remain in the patient’s body for 15-30 minutes, stimulating the tissue. As a result, the knots and cords formed in the muscle straighten and eventually disappear completely. As a result of needling, the patient no longer feels pain and the range of motion returns.

After the procedure, the patient feels slight numbness in the area where the needles were inserted. This goes away within a few hours. Since the procedure is carried out in a manipulation room, the patient can go home immediately after its completion.

The patient will see the first results immediately during the process, and full functionality returns after 2-3 days, depending on the individual characteristics of the patient. After surgery, it is necessary to undergo a course of physical therapy to restore range of motion. The doctor selects the duration of the procedures individually: from 5 to 10 sessions.
