Functional Dry Needling

Safe. Effective. 


Dry needling is a technique physical therapists use (where allowed by state law) for the treatment of pain and movement impairments.   The technique uses a very thin “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle or connective tissues. Dry needling can elicit a muscle's twitch response. The twitch response has a biochemical characteristic to it which likely affects the reaction of the muscle, symptoms and response of the tissue.  



Conditions that may benefit from Dry Needling:








  • Myofascial trigger points
  • Dysfunctional muscle recruitment
  • Muscle spasm
  • Enhanced muscle performance for sport/function
