What is Dry Needling? There are a number of theories. We are going to go in depth on Functional Dry Needling (FDN). With this particular style of needling you are looking to improve movement. By improving movement, pain and discomfort should also reduce.
The other models include the Trigger Point model, Energy Crisis model, Radiculopathic model, and the Motor End-Plate model. I always like to think of FDN in a more simple way.
FDN helps to reset the muscle. So if the muscle is over firing, spasming or chronically tight you can get it to relax by putting a needle in there. If it doing the opposite so not firing you can put the needle in there and get it activate. The analogy I like to use is that of a computer. We’ve all experienced a time when our computer is not working, as we like. So the first thing we do is shut the computer down and turn it back on again. We reset it and that more often then not will get it to start working again.
So with the body if we can get it to start moving better often times we can get the pain to reduce and eventually go away. The important thing to remember is that FDN along is usually not enough to make a lasting change. We always like to follow up all out treatments with a series of therapeutic exercise. These exercises are going to ensure a long lasting change.
