Principle and scope of inner heating dry needle treatment
IHDN Brief Introduction
Inner heating dry needle therapy, that is, soft tissue release of internal heat needle, or percutaneous skeletal muscle release, also known as transmuscular dry needle inner heated revascularization, commonly known as skeletal muscle Internal heat acupuncture is a method to treat skeletal muscle spasm, stiffness and degeneration caused by various reasons. It is based on the degree and area of degeneration and ischemia of myofascial spasm. By using internal heat acupuncture, in the ischemic myofascial area, multiple small holes penetrating through skeletal muscle are divided into sections to cause trauma, and induce skeletal muscle regeneration and Revascularization, and directly heating the needle body, to reduce the tension and aseptic inflammation of the spastic degenerative muscles, so that the myofascial spastic degeneration and ischemia can be improved and the purpose of treatment can be achieved.
The specific treatment method is to locate, disinfect, and anaesthetize the soft tissue lesions of the human fascia that are to be released. After sterilizing and anesthetizing, insert multiple internal heat needles and connect the instrument to heat the needle body for 20 minutes. That is, the treatment is completed.
Inner heating dry needle therapy is commonly described as muscle punching, as if "coal" was made into "honeycomb briquette". It is based on the pathological characteristics of myofascial injury, and refers to the advantages of soft tissue surgery, loosening treatment, silver needle therapy, myocardial laser drilling treatment, acupuncture and small needle knife treatment. Internal thermal acupuncture soft tissue release therapy is mainly aimed at patients with severe muscle degeneration and stiffness, and other non-surgical treatment methods such as massage and traction physiotherapy, which are even ineffective. Its unique treatment method, long-term, continuous treatment effect is good, which cannot be replaced by other methods.
Principle of Inner Heating Dry Needle Therapy
Inner Heating Dry Needle Therapy is to release soft tissues by acupuncture with a plurality of inner heated needles to achieve the effect of loosening. There are three main treatment mechanisms.
(1) Release muscle cramps.
(2) Eliminate inflammatory response.
(3) Improve local microcirculation.
The larger diameter of the inner heated needle causes different degrees of trauma to the soft tissue. Through the pathological process of wound healing, it induces skeletal muscle regeneration and revascularization, improves the blood circulation of diseased muscles, and achieves long-term therapeutic effects. Uniform and controlled temperature is transmitted to the end of deep soft tissues such as periosteum through the entire needle body, which plays a role in eliminating aseptic inflammation of myofascial.
Indications of Inner Heating Dry Needle Therapy
Inner Heating Dry Needle Therapy has a wide range of indications. Almost all diseases related to muscle stiffness and spasm, such as neck and back pain, arthritis, etc., can be performed on the basis of drugs and other treatments to control the primary disease. The main indications can be divided into the following categories.
1) Spinal diseases
Such as cervical disc herniation, lumbar disc herniation, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, etc., after cervical, thoracic and lumbar spondylosis, spastic torticollis, ankylosing spondylitis and spinal joint rheumatism.
2) Shoulder disease
Impact syndrome, frozen shoulder, scapular nerve entrapment, calcified tendinitis, rotator cuff injury, etc.
3) Elbow, wrist and hand disease
External epicondylitis of humerus, epicondylitis of pelvis, elbow arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, carpal arthritis, finger tenosynovitis, etc.
4) Haunch and Hip Disease
Avascular necrosis of the femoral head (middle-aged and young people), congenital dysplasia of the hip joint (acetabular), hip impact syndrome, popping hip, gluteal muscle contracture, etc.
5) Knee disease
Osteoarthritis of the knee, submental fat pad inflammation, patellar tendinopathy, patellar softening, goose foot bursitis, knee contracture, knee ligament injury, knee pain and so on.
6) Foot and Ankle Diseases
Sprained ankle joint, ankle instability, sacral sinus syndrome, sacral canal syndrome, Achilles tendinopathy, Morton's palsy, plantar fasciitis
7) other diseases
Heterotopic ossification (ossifying myositis), spasm of limbs after central lesions, etc.
(1) The patient refused treatment.
(2) The skin of the lesion has a damaged infection or a systemic fever.
(3) There is a tumor in the lesion.
(4) Those with severe bleeding tendency, such as blood diseases such as thrombocytopenia, or severe systemic coagulopathy.
(5) Severe cardio-cerebrovascular diseases, such as acute myocardial infarction, acute phase of cerebrovascular disease, etc.
(6) Those who are severely debilitated, such as severe hypovolemia, hypoproteinemia or anemia, severe malnutrition, and severe malignant tumor
(7) Others who are particularly sensitive and fearful of pain.
(1) Infants and young children.
(2) Female pregnancy.
(3) Those who use anticoagulants.
(4) Those with uncontrolled cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
(5) Those with a history of local anesthetic allergy.
