Functional Dry Needling (FDN) involves the insertion of tiny monofilament needles directly into muscle. The purpose of this is to release shortened bands and “trigger points” that occur in strained muscle tissue. This is not traditional Chinese Acupuncture, but it is instead a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective.
Since dry needling is a relatively new treatment option that some physical therapists are certified to perform, insurance companies largely do not reimburse for this treatment modality. There is a fifty dollar ($50) out-of-pocket charge per dry needling session.
