  1. Hey Jacob, What needle do u normally use for this? Do u attach the needle directly to a syringe, or use a needle with a short extension tube?
    Great work. Thanks, Jeff

    1. Hi Jeff!
      I usually use a 10 cc syringe with a 25 gauge, 2.5 inch needle. I’m placing 5-10 cc’s per area, depending on how good of a spread I get!

  2. hi first thank you for what you do for us
    but i don’t recognize the nerve from muscles from fascia..etc some difficulties for recognize the nerve , the needle should not touch the nerve , right just spread around and near it
