Denver Family Sport and SpineAbout Functional Dry Needling
Dr. Casey Schmitz of Centennial’s Denver Family Sport and Spine offers functional dry needling to help his patients recover from injury and reduce chronic pain. His dry needling treatments use thin needles to access trigger points in the muscles to facilitate patient recovery from within.
The needles used in dry needling do not inject any solution, and they are so thin that most patients will not feel them penetrate the skin. Some patients do feel mild to moderate discomfort as the needle enters the muscle tissue, but most consider it minimal compared to the reward of releasing trigger points and thereby relieving pain.
Results typically appear in just two to four sessions, depending on the injury and pain being treated.
