Dry Needling in Physical Therapy
Though its name might be off-putting, dry needling is a simple procedure that is quickly becoming a central and effective part of treatment at Mountain View Pain Center. It enables our doctors to not only defuse pain, but also help heal various neuromuscular skeletal conditions. It is one of the single-most effective ways to improve clinical outcomes in both its speed and duration.
While techniques like “wet needling” will inject substances such as saline solution, Botox, or corticosteroids, dry needling involves no fluids or injections. It is ever evolving and, as a result, there are different types. At Mountain View Pain Center, we put our main focus on Functional Dry Needling (FDN) and Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN).
