My physicatrist did dry needing in the quadrous lumborum, ikiocastolis and sacro tuberous ligaments 4 weeks ago. I am still having some pain and soreness in that area which is located in the muscles above the left hip and next to my left upper rib cage. Has anyone else had this done and was it of any benefit? I really cannot do much in the way of exercise and my doctor tells me it will take 6 to 12 weeks for the muscle to heal. I'm really afraid to do anything. Can anyone give me some advice about this procedure and is this an appropriate procedure to relieve pain. My doctor said she was actually injuring the muscle so that it would have to repair itself and that she has done this many times. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
