Functional Dry Needling

Functional Dry Needling uses fine filiform needles to treat muscle tightness and soft tissue dysfunction. During this treatment the physical therapist looks for “knots” in the muscle and uses the needles to trigger the muscle to relax, reducing pain and increasing functionality. Functional Dry Needling is effective in both acute and chronic pain conditions. Some examples would be muscle strains, bursitis, tendonitis and joint stiffness.
