Functional Dry Needling/IMS

– improve muscle control and circulation

Functional Dry Needling (FDN) involves sterilized needles being inserted into tight muscles to alleviate pain and muscle tension, increase strength and range of motion, and ultimately promote healing. FDN is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain. Although the needles are being employed, FDN differs from acupuncture as it encompasses a medicinal approach as opposed to a focus on the meridian lines of the body.

Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) is a needling technique used to decrease nerve irritation and pain following injury. IMS causes muscles to relax, encouraging a reduction in pain and a greater range of motion.
