Apr 27, 2018 · Dry Point Needling given by a certified Physical Therapist in Chronic Pain

I am very interested in connecting with anyone who has had dry point needling at Mayo. The affected muscle is a complex one – the SCM.

I did not have success, but I followed the titration schedule on the bottle, however, my doctor was sending me by mail a different schedule for titration and I thought the schedule on the bottle was the one I should follow. Now I have taped down the tizanidine and we are going to try tramadol and lidocaine patches 5% for four days and see how that goes.

Thank you for your reply. Do you ever take it during the daytime ? What is the effect on the spasms?

I have severe neck spasms which have been treated by a variety of methods – acupuncture, massage, baclofen, flexeral, physical therapy- but the spasms persist. When the drug was suggested to me, I had never heard of it and so I was curious to see if anyone else had experience with it. Thank you for your response and I’m happy that it helps you!

Lynette, I don’t know the answers to all of your questions. But I think the first step is to see if the program is covered by your health insurance.

I think it’s important to understand that Mayo has several programs to help people dealing with chronic pain. When I went to Mayo’s website, I found this description: “The Pain Rehabilitation Center’s three-week program is intended for adults whose chronic pain is a major health issue and who, because of pain, have experienced a significant decline in functional abilities, mood and quality of life.” So, here you have a program that lasts three weeks, eight hours a day, five days a week. The program I am referring to is called, I believe, the Pain Clinic Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Group. This a 12 week program that meets once a week for an hour and a half. It It is important to check your health insurance coverage if you are interested in either group. It may be that it’s a covered service, but preauthorization is needed.
