FIDN IS AN ABBREVATION FOR FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATED DRY NEEDLING. Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle “trigger points”, fascia, tendons and ligaments, etc) resulting in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology. Research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, normalizes biochemical and electrical dysfunction of motor endplates, and facilitates an accelerated return to active rehabilitation.

Whats different about Functional Integrated Dry Needling to “Normal” Dry Needling? Normally dry needling is done on trigger points but what if there are no trigger points? Hence FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATED DRY NEEDLING is a new phenomenon which is done on not only trigger points but tender points. FIDN also follows the peripheral nerves and therefore the flow of the pain pathways. Intra discal needling and the stimulation of the cartilage /menisci of the knee ALSO IS DONE SUCCESSFULLY.
