Functional Dry Needling

Functional Dry Needlings¬† in Calgary is a therapeutic method that entails delicately inserting slender needles into precise trigger points within muscles, tendons, ligaments, or near nerves. Unlike acupuncture, which is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, Functional Dry Needling is based on Western medicine principles. The primary aim is to alleviate pain and enhance well-being by targeting muscular trigger points and promoting the body’s natural healing processes.

Our skilled and certified physiotherapists at Miracure follow a thorough assessment before administering Functional Dry Needling. The procedure includes inserting needles into targeted areas, stimulating muscle tissue, and initiating a localized twitch response. This twitch response helps release tension in the muscle, improve blood flow, and promote the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
