A treatment that eases your pain is a beautiful thing.
Something I didn’t fully appreciate until a few years ago is that there are multiple ways to ease your pain. Multiple approaches. Multiple practitioners.
I irritated my elbow paddling last week, and I could have seen any number of people to fix it.
This time around, I got dry needling, acupuncture, and some manual therapy from Asif at Lancaster Rd.
He used a technique I hadn’t had before: the combination of dry needling and acupuncture at the same time, followed by muscle work and mobilization of the joints at the elbow and neck.
It worked beautifully, and had an added bonus of being less intense (as needling tends to be).
The Lesson Here Is..
Don’t get stuck in a treatment rut. Experiment with different modalities and practitioners. You might stumble upon the perfect Wellness Formula for you.
And if you’re still debating how to begin your wellness journey, take the quiz to see what treatment type is a good fit for you starting out!
