What is that?
Functional Dry Needling is a soft tissue technique utilized by physical therapists with advanced training. It is extremely effective in facilitating a change in muscle tissue and can often speed recovery times for acute injuries and provide breakthroughs for more chronic dysfunction. While it is often correctly thought of as trigger point therapy, dry needling when applied skillfully can be used to both inhibit or excite muscle groups to produce immediate results.
Is it different from acupuncture?

Could it be right for me?
Dry needling allows your therapist to treat entire pathways of dysfunctional tissue and improve linkage throughout your kinetic chain, making the most of each session. While your therapist may encourage you to try the technique, it is not for everyone, and is completely optional. We are happy to answer any and all questions you may have before and during treatment.
