Functional Dry Needling (FDN) uses thin monofilament needles that treat muscle trigger points. A trigger point is taught bands of tissue or muscle knots that develop from an injury, overuse, or musculoskeletal dysfunction. These Trigger points tend to cause widespread pain but are often tender to the touch.

Your physical therapist knows if your trigger points underlie your pain. After a comprehensive assessment, your physical therapist at Physical Therapy Advantage may recommend Dry Needling, which is usually combined with other treatments. Call today!
