Unusual Abdominal Injury
Thank you, Dr. Towfigh and Dr. Goldstein, for taking the time to help. I have a much better understanding of the injury and what I need to do as the injury continues to heal.
Dr. Towfigh, I appreciate your advice concerning dry needling. You mentioned that dry needling is not good in the acute stage, but I did have it done 6 days after the injury. Would this have set me back or done any damage? Does 6 weeks refer to 6 weeks after late October 2014, when the injury happened? I am about 6.5 months into the healing process. Can a muscle tear take this long to heal? I completely understand that these questions might not have any clear answers.
You also mentioned that imaging can show the girth of each muscle. Would an MRI provide this imaging?
