Functional Dry Needling is an approach using a thin monofilament needle inserted directly into the muscle believed to be producing contraction knots and contributing towards the person’s pain cycle. This can help de-sensitize sensitive muscles for a neurophysiological response to help restore motion and function. Most clients feel an improvement within the first session, with reinforcement through manual therapy and a home program.
The staff at Refine Physical Therapy is certified in the treatment approach of dry needling not offered in many Michigan clinics.
Manual therapy is a hands-on treatment approach of musculoskeletal conditions by performing joint mobilization and/or manipulation. Manual therapy performed in conjunction with an individualized exercise program has been shown to improve efficiency of recovery.
When you're physically active or starting a new sport, pain can sometimes accompany that activity. Not sure if your condition warrants formal physical therapy, or if simply refining your movement could help? Email or call to schedule a free 20 minute movement screen and have your questions answered. The best part is it's free!
