eloquis and dry needling

    • August 28, 2018 at 3:35 pm #17817

      Anyone see any reason not to dry needle a patient on eloquis? Patient is concerned about trying it because he was told by his doctor “no injections”. I don’t see any issue and will of course go slow. Just wanted confirmation. I usually put extra pressure after I needle just in case there is any bleeding. Anyone feel otherwise?

      Sorry missed this one. I have been needling those patients for years without issue but this is something that if you have concern I would speak directly to the physician. Make sure they understand that we are using 30-38 gauge needles and we are not doin aggressive pistoning so they understand what we are doing they also describe why we needle. That has always worked well for me with docs.
