Functional Dry Needling


FDN is used as a treatment to release shortened bands of muscles and decrease trigger points causing musculoskeletal pain.   This can help resolve pain, muscle tension and promote healing. It is performed by inserting a tiny monofilament needle into a muscle and augmented with use of Estim to reset the contraction of the muscle, promoting a more normal contraction of the muscle itself.  FDN is not acupuncture. The goal of  FDN is to stimulate a twitch response in a muscle with a sustained contraction, shortened muscle  band and allow the muscle to release its chronic restriction and tightness  . Our practitioners have met FDN  requirements within the State of Idaho , and have specifically received training  by KinetaCore .
