Functional Dry Needling (FDN) is a hands-on, invasive therapy for treating myofascial trigger points. Myofascial trigger points are extremely irritated, small sections of muscle, located in a taut band that is painful to touch.
At Northern Physical Therapy situated in Lyndonville, VT, our patients undergo an initial Physical Therapy exam and FDN will be considered as one possible treatment. Functional Dry Needling is used primarily in the treatment of pain in muscles and connective tissue. FDN addresses referred pain, meaning the pain is felt in a different region from where it originated. The result of FDN is a local twitch response which can cause positive local changes and increased blood flow.
