This ancient Chinese treatment for chronic pain and stress relief has been shown to reduce musculoskeletal pain by targeting acupuncture points (in your skeletal muscles) with dry needles. Functional dry needling uses fine filiform needles to treat muscle tightness and soft tissue dysfunction. Functional dry needling is effective in both acute and chronic pain conditions. Some examples would be muscle strains, bursitis, tendonitis, and joint stiffness. Functional dry needling can relive pain and stiffness and improve flexibility and range of motion.
Hausmann PT is home to certified dry needlers so you know you are in good hands when treating pain. 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. Hausmann PT is dedicated to finding the best ways to ease your pain and get you feeling better faster.
