Default Dry Needling for CRPS ?

Has anyone tried Dry Needling for CRPS ?

Yes! Dry Needling For CRPS Pain Relief | NSI Stem Cell

Edit : it seems as tho most physical therapists are trained to administer dry needle treatment .

Default Dry Needling Experience

Yes, I've had 3 or 4 dry needling sessions. I have crps in my foot but my preformus muscle gets tight and presses on sciatic nerve which makes my foot hurt more. It works somewhat, but IMO I think deep tissue massage is able to do the same or better without having to get stuck with needles. Somehow the dry needle causes your tight muscle to "let go" and relax/release. Hope this helps for anyone reading this older post.

Dry needling sent me running to the doctor for steroid injections after the muscles in my back seemed to lock up immediately following treatment and didn't unlock until my GP gave me 6 steroid shots.
That was my 1 experience with it....because there was not going to be a second.
Im not a fan for this reason.
