Functional Dry Needling
Dry Needling involves multiples advances of a filament needles (similar to acupuncture needles) into the muscle in the region of a “trigger point”. The goal of dry needling is to achieve a local twitch response to release muscle tension and pain. Dry needling is an effective treatment for chronic pain of neuropathic origin with very few adverse effects. Research supports the use of dry needling for improvement of pain, reduction of muscle tension, and an accelerated return to active rehabilitation.
