This technique could be used to treat a variety of conditions, such as sprains or strains, to provide pain relief.

Matt Holland, a Houston Methodist physical therapist said that patients interested in the treatment should seek a medical provider who is certified to provide functional dry needling to ensure their safety during treatment. Most insurance plans will cover the cost of functional dry needling treatments.
