Relief Plus is pleased to announce that the personnel at the clinic have been trained and are experienced in the application of dry needling in Lafayette, Louisiana, to patients. A three-phase program is applied in the clinic, which includes relief from pain, reinforcement of practices to prevent pain from returning, and learning to live a more healthy lifestyle through practice and education. Dry needling is one of the methods utilized to provide patients with rapid and effective relief from pain.
The technique of dry needling involves inserting fine needles into the areas of muscle fiber banding and construction. These areas often lead to secondary pain as well as local pain. When the needles are inserted into the trigger point areas, it brings a new supply of blood to the area, which is the basis of healing and pain reduction. Contrary to concerns, the insertion of the needles relieves pain and restores movement, rather than causing pain. The body undertakes the process of self-healing.

Dry needling is combined with other therapies and techniques, such as manual adjustments, soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, and laser therapy. Some of the conditions that have been helped by the application of dry needling include golfer’s elbow; plantar fasciitis; muscle, tendon, ligament injuries; tennis elbow; tension headaches; tendinitis; and SI joint pain. A customized treatment plan is created for each patient after a thorough assessment.
The techniques of needling utilized at the clinic are just the first step in a care plan. By reducing the pain and constriction levels, the patient typically is better able to employ other non-invasive measures to restore movement and enjoyment of daily activities. The team at Relief Plus works with patients to help prevent a return to activities and practices which have been the underlying cause of the pain.
