Functional Dry Needling

Dry needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the body which produces pain and typically contains a "trigger point". There is no injectable solution and typically the needle which is used is very thin. Typically, positive results are apparent within 2-4 treatment sessions but can vary depending on the cause and duration of the symptoms, and the overall health of the patient.

Some conditions dry needling can be used for include:

  • Sciatica
  • Low back pain
  • Cervicogenic headache
  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Muscle strains
  • Tennis and golfer's elbow
  • Shoulder and knee pain
