Integrated Dry Needling (IDN) involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle or muscles in order to release shortened bands of muscles and decrease trigger point activity. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension, and will promote healing. This is not traditional Chinese Acupuncture, but is instead a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective. Your physical therapist is trained as a certified Integrated Dry Needling Practitioner.
IDN is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Like any treatment, there are possible complications. While complications are rare in occurrence, they are real and must be considered prior to giving consent for treatment.
Risks: The most serious risk with IDN is accidental puncture of a lung (pneumothorax). If this were to occur, it may likely require a chest x-ray and no further treatment. The symptoms of shortness of breath may last for several days to weeks. A more severe puncture can require hospitalization and re-inflation of the lung. This is a rare complication, and in skilled hands it should not be a major concern. Other risks include injury to a blood vessel causing a bruise, infection, and/or nerve injury. Bruising is a common occurrence and should not be a concern.
Patient’s Consent: I understand that no guarantee or assurance has been made as to the results of this procedure and that it may not cure my condition. My therapist has also discussed with me the probability of success of this procedure, as well as the probability of serious side effects. Multiple treatment sessions may be required/needed, thus this consent will cover this treatment as well as consecutive treatments by this facility. I have read and fully understand this consent form and understand that I should not sign this form until all items, including my questions, have been explained or answered to my satisfaction. With my signature, I hereby consent to the performance of this procedure. I also consent to any measures necessary to correct complications which may result.
Manipulation (for the spine and peripheral joints) is a treatment technique within the practice of manual therapy that involves specialized hands-on treatments applied by highly qualified physiotherapists. A manipulation is a passive, high velocity, low amplitude thrust applied to a joint beyond its physiological limit of motion, but within its anatomical limit, with the intent to restore optimal motion and function, reduce muscle pain and tension and/or reduce pain.
CAMPT-Certified Physiotherapists are Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) and have advanced training and clinic expertise in manual and manipulative therapy. They are required to have completed extensive post-graduate education in the area of orthopaedics and have attained internationally-recognized qualifications in hands-on manipulative therapy. CAMPT-Certified physiotherapists are qualified to provide safe and effective treatments for pain and movement disorders of the spine and extremities.
Physiotherapists who use manual therapy techniques such as manipulations are required to advise patients that there are some risks associated with such treatment. Physiotherapists obtain informed consent to treatment in accordance with provincial legislation governing their practice. Clients are routinely reassessed following a manipulation and treatment is continued, modified, or discontinued based on the results of this evaluation, and when indicators for manipulation and/or established treatment goals are met.
In particular, you should note that while rare, some patients have experienced: exacerbation and aggravation of symptoms including increased pain and stiffness, muscle strain, ligamentous sprain, muscle spasm and bruising following manipulations.
In spinal manipulations some of the risks may include rib fracture, vertebral fractures, spinal disc injury including disc herniation and bulges, spinal cord injury , myelopathy , central cord syndrome, or quadriplegia, neurological injury or impairment including radiculopathy, numbness, tingling, pins and needles, and radiating pain.
There have been reported cases of injury to the vertebral artery (blood vessel located in the neck) following manipulation to the neck (cervical spine). Vertebral artery injuries have been known to cause dizziness or vertigo, or at their worst stroke, sometimes with serious neurological impairment, or death. The possibility of such injuries resulting from neck spinal manipulation is extremely rare and occurs almost entirely in the top-most region.
Physiotherapy treatment, including manipulation, has been the subject of government reports and multi-disciplinary studies conducted over many years. These reports and studies have demonstrated treatment to be effective for spinal pain, headaches and other similar symptoms. These treatments may contribute to your overall well-being. The risk of injuries or complications from treatment is substantially lower than that associated with the other treatments, medications and procedures given for the same symptoms.
I acknowledge, I will discuss, with my therapist, the nature and purpose of treatment in general and my treatment in particular as well as the content of the Consent.
I acknowledge that I have the right to refuse manipulation and manual therapy techniques, regardless of the consequences and regardless how beneficial or necessary such treatment may be.
I consent to and authorize my physiotherapist, or whomever he/she may designate, to perform manipulation (spinal and peripheral techniques as needed) and manual therapy techniques on me, and agree to proceed with such treatment.
This consent applies to all my current and future treatment.
I acknowledge that I have the right to withdraw my consent and stop treatment at any time
