Functional Dry Needling (FDN)

FDN is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. It involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle or muscles in order to release shortened bands of muscle and decrease myofascial trigger point activity. If you're ready to learn more about Functional Dry Needling in Lincoln make sure you schedule an appointment.

Functional Dry Needling in Lincoln

Horizon Physical Therapy is now offering Functional Dry Needling (FDN). Our physical therapist, Shane Jansa, is now certified in FDN from KinetaCore. KinetaCore’s FDN course gives clinicians the tools to elevate their practice to a new level of patient care. Shane Jansa has been in private practice for 20 years and has owned his own clinic for 13 years. He has experience working with patients that have chronic pain, gait disorders, and neurological diseases. He is a certified strength and conditioning specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association.

Shane uses manual techniques to identify the trigger point, or source of pain. The small monofilament needle is advanced into the area to elicit a brief, involuntary twitch response to relax the muscle. A twitch response or deep ache may be felt around the needle. Patients may soon learn to recognize and even welcome this sensation as it results in deactivating the trigger point, thereby reducing pain and restoring normal function of the muscle. This treatment can eliminate pain, muscle tightness, and reduce referred pain. Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research. This technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, to treat myofascial pain. Unlike having an injection, most patients do not feel the insertion of the needle.

At Horizon Physical Therapy, the training in Functional Dry Needling® (FDN) emphasizes application of dry needling for the purpose of restoring function. We believe the physical therapist’s greatest asset is their knowledge and ability to assess, treat, and enhance movement. Functional movement is a goal for every patient to achieve and the properly trained physical therapist is perfectly positioned to guide and hasten the patient’s journey to healthy movement.

By Far The Best

I've been to a couple PTs in my life and Shane & his staff are by far the best. They are so caring & their therapies are very comprehensive. They educate & train you on the root of your issue, not just treat your ailments. I saw Shane for plantar fasciitis. He was able to relieve my pain & help me adjust the reason for my symptoms. I would highly suggest Horizon PT to anyone in Lincoln!

LET’S DO IT!

I have had sciatic nerve pain for a long time, this time was awful.  I came to Horizon, two great people worked with me.  After a few weeks, the pain was still bad.  Shane sat down with me and told me he wanted to try something new that he has had good luck with, it was called dry needling.  I said yes- let's do it!  I had no pain with it, it didn't take long either.  I got up-dropped my cane and walked out of the room with NO PAIN.  It's been over two months and I still have no pain.
