Functional Dry Needling (FDN) is a technique used to treat myofascial pain with a solid filiform needle.
This technique targets muscles that contain trigger points and are reproducing your pain. Functional Dry Needling focuses not on pain, but on movement. Evaluation and assessment of dysfunctional movement is imperative for the therapist to successfully affect movement. Treating the neuromuscular tissue that is not allowing or promoting proper movement is the goal of Functional Dry Needling. This method is used as a tool within your treatment plan and can produce quicker results.
