Risks Associated with Dry Needling

Potential Adverse (Unwanted) Risks:

punctured lung
vasovagal response – feeling lightheaded or flushed
muscle soreness
• fatigue
• bruising
• pain during insertion
fainting – typically occurs in individuals who have had prior issues with needles (i.e. giving blood)

Many of these adverse effects above are extremely rare. However, if you are nervous of any of these symptoms please talk with your ICTMJC doctor prior to receiving Dry Needling Therapy.

Who Should Not Try Dry Needling?

Individuals who should not receive Dry Needling or beware of Dry Needling include someone who:

denies consent
• has a high level of fear/apprehension
• has a bleeding disorder(s) or is on anti-coagulant medications
• is pregnant
• has an infection/illness
• has an unstable bone injury
• has a malignant tumor
• has a pacemaker
• around breast implants or other implants
• on or near a joint replacement

Some of these listed conditions or fears above are relative-contraindications, not absolute. Ask our Doctors of Chiropractic if you have questions or concerns with any of these.
