Functional Dry Needling
Functional dry needling is a specialized form of needling that differs from acupuncture. It helps to reduce pain and dysfunction by inserting a needle into targeted areas of tightness and trigger points in muscle tissue. The needle produces a reflex response, causing relaxation of the muscle, thus reducing tension on other joint structures. IMS is not appropriate for all patients and thus a special assessment is required to determine if it is appropriate for you.
