The Benefits of Combining Dry Needling and Core Training for Back Pain

February 13, 20233 min read

My soul is weary with sorrow;
    strengthen me according to your word.

-Psalm 119:28

Introduction:

Back pain is a common problem that affects millions of people, and it can have a significant impact on one's quality of life. In order to help alleviate back pain, many individuals turn to physical therapy and exercise. Two popular approaches to back pain relief are dry needling and core training, and combining these two approaches can offer several benefit.

Back pain and dry needling and core training

What is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a noninvasive procedure performed by physical therapists that involves the insertion of filiform needles into tight, painful muscles or trigger points. The goal of dry needling is to stimulate the muscle and surrounding tissue, which can help to reduce pain and increase mobility. Dry needling has been used to help alleviate back pain caused by conditions such as muscle strains, herniated discs, and sciatica.

What is Core Training?

Core training is an exercise program that focuses on strengthening the muscles of the deep abdomen lower back, and hips, which are commonly referred to as the "core." Strong core muscles are important for stability and support, and core training has been shown to be effective in reducing back pain caused by conditions such as lower back pain, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. Core training exercises can include planks, bridges, and other exercises that target the abdominal and lower back muscles.

The Benefits of Combining Dry Needling and Core Training

1. Improved Muscle Function: 

Dry needling helps to target tight, painful muscles and promote healing, while core training helps to strengthen the muscles of the abdomen and lower back. By combining these two approaches, individuals can experience improved muscle function and reduced pain in the back.

2. Increased Mobility:

Dry needling can help to increase mobility in the affected area by reducing pain and promoting healing. Core training, on the other hand, helps to improve stability and support, which can further increase mobility.

3. Reduced Inflammation

Dry needling has been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help to reduce pain and swelling in the affected area. By combining dry needling with core training, individuals can experience an even greater reduction in inflammation and pain.

4.Targeted Treatment:

Dry needling and core training can be customized to meet the specific needs of the individual. A physical therapist can perform a thorough assessment and design a treatment plan that targets the individual's specific pain points and weaknesses. Also the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound makes the accuracy much more precise when applying dry needling to damaged tissue.

5. Long-Term Relief:

While dry needling and core training can provide immediate relief, they can also help to prevent future pain and injury. By strengthening the muscles of the abdomen and lower back and promoting healing in tight, painful muscles, individuals can experience long-term relief from back pain.
