Efficacy of Dry Needling and Acupuncture in the Treatment of Neck Pain

CONCLUSIONS: Neck pain is a common and significant global problem. Acupuncture, dry needling, and cupping were all shown to be effective in alleviating pain both immediately after treatment, as well as provide long-lasting relief. These treatments are generally safe and inexpensive and should be considered as part of a multimodal approach for the treatment of neck pain. More head-to-head studies will provide better data to support a choice of a specific treatment over another.PMID:34336626 | PMC:PMC8314077 | DOI:10.5812/aapm.113627

Conclusion. The present case demonstrated the need to extensively investigate causes of generalized bone pain in patients with hypophosphatemia, as TIO is highly curable. Importantly, 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging successfully identified the FGF23 producing tumor, which was undetectable by conventional imaging, favoring its early use in suspected TIO presentation. The present report highlights the importance of timely diagnosis of this complex medical condition, aiming to improve general awareness and enable better clinical outcomes for this rare disorder.PMID:34523297 | DOI:10.2478/enr-2021-0017

Conclusion: Our study results suggest that TFESI is an effective and safe method to decrease not only nociceptive but also NP component in patients with chronic radiculopathy due to LDH. Clinicians should keep in mind that NP is a risk factor that adversely affects the TFESI success and patients should be evaluated before the procedure.
