Dry Needling











Functional Dry Needling:

 

Functional Dry Needling is an effective, safe, and efficient treatment for patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain. A small, thin needle is inserted into the muscle where tight, taut trigger points are palpated by the therapist. The goal of this needle is to contract the muscle and then relax it. This treatment is effective for patients with chronic muscle or joint pain, muscle inhibition, or are looking to increase muscle performance.
