    Would dry needling be contraindicated for a person taking Eliquis? The DN would be in the lumbar region.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Chris
    Since eliquis is a blood thinner, dry needling would be a “precaution” not an absolute contra indication. I personally always check with the physician who prescribes any blood thinners prior to dry needling their patient. Usually this provides an opportunity for a connection with the provider and education about PT and dry needling if necessary.
