Functional Dry Needling In Milwaukee, WI

Many People Have Heard Of Dry Needling, But Don't Fully Understand What It Does And How It Can Help Them.

What Is Dry Needling?

Dry needling is a proven treatment technique that involves the insertion of tiny sterile needles into tight, painful muscle knots (trigger points). We needle the areas where you have pain. This can help to “reset” the muscles to the way they were before you had a problem with that area.

How Is It Different Than Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique whereas Dry Needling is a modern neuromuscular technique utilized by Physical Therapists, Dan Schumann, and even some Doctors.

Acupuncture focuses on balancing energy flow or “life force”, known as “chi or qi” (“chee”), whereas Dry Needling is based on traditional orthopedic examination methods looking at muscle tone, strength, joint range of motion, and neuromuscular symptoms.

Acupuncture and Dry Needling use almost identical needles, but the assessment, techniques, and philosophies are vastly different.

Great company with great service. Dan takes time to evaluate not only where you are at but who you are and what your goals are. He was able to not only get me back to full training quickly after an injury, he gave me things to do to after I left to pervert injury and improved my performance from where I was before. The practice is very friendly and comfortable to work with. Highly recommend seeing Dan for anything that is bothering you or you want to improve performance on.
