Dry Needling At South Pointe Physical Rehab

Functional dry needling (FDN) is an extremely effective tool in treating restrictions in myofascial tissue as well as re-educating muscles that aren’t working properly. Functional Dry Needling is often a single component of a larger treatment plan that can include other areas such as bio mechanical analysis and targeted exercises to retrain proper movement patterns. It is accomplished by introducing a very small monofilament needle into the body at a point of dysfunction.  Dysfunction can mean a shortened or tightened muscle in a spasmed state or one that isn’t firing properly.  

When inserted into a trigger point or a tight muscle, a needle can have a profound effect similar to rebooting a computer.  Often times, a twitch response can be palpated with improved mobility noticed after treatment.  When muscles aren’t contracting like they should, needling with electrical stimulation can be a great treatment option.  Introducing an electrical current deep down to a specific muscle can “re-educate” it to contract like normal and restore proper muscle firing patterns. 

What Are Benefits Of Dry Needling?

Functional Dry Needling can be an excellent treatment for patients who are experiencing chronic pain. Over time, the body starts to ignore chronic pain points, resulting in the healing responses for the pain area in question becoming almost completely cut off. When Dry Needling is used to treat these choric pain symptoms, it re-ignites the bodies healing response in areas that have been ignored over time.

In addition to chronic pain, Dry Needling has been shown to be successful tool to treat numerous conditions such as:

  • Neck, Shoulder, and Back pain stemming from tissue in muscles
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Disc Herniation
  • Myofascial Pain
