Upper extremity injuries are typically caused by collisions with other players. Injuries include severe trauma to the cervical spine (C1 to C7); fractures, separations, and dislocations; and contusions of soft tissue.
Dry needling acupuncture, in conjunction with conventional modalities, is helpful in treating all these injuries, specifically for soft tissue. Daily treatment should be provided to reduce swelling, and two sessions per week should be administered for pain and other symptoms.
