Heel Pain & Dry Needling: What Do Patients Think?
Before dry needling, more conservative treatment options will be tried, like shoe inserts, shoe changes, stretching exercises, and more, so if you haven’t already tried those methods, it is unlikely that dry needling will be recommended for your case. But if you have tried those methods and nothing has worked for you, dry needling is a great alternative to surgery. It is less invasive and carries less risk. Dry needling can also be performed in the office, and it is less expansive than surgery or other non-invasive treatments like shockwave therapy.
There are risks, as with every procedure, so be sure to discuss those with your podiatrist if you are considering this treatment option.
Here is an example of what our patients are saying about dry needling:
“After several visits and attempts to rid the pain in my right heel from a Plantar Fasciitis, Dr Neuhaus decided to perform the dry needling procedure. The in-office treatment worked very well, with a local injection and ultrasound he was able to perform the dry needling in about 10 minutes. After a few days, wearing a special boot, and not walking barefoot the soreness subsided, this procedure has given back my mobility in walking without pain and with less discomfort each new day. " - W. H.
