Dry Needling NEW to Versailles Health Care Center

Physical Therapist Stephanie Goubeaux.
Stephanie Goubeaux, Physical Therapist at Versailles Health Care Center, recently received training in Dry Needling at KinetaCore in West Virginia. Goubeaux is now certified in this effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects, and is excited to offer it at The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center. KinetaCore and dry needling were featured on Terry Bradshaw’s “The Edge”. Dry needling benefits athletes of every kind as well as non-athletes.

Dry needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves a very thin needle being pushed through the skin to stimulate a trigger point. Trigger points are irritable, hard “knots” within a muscle that may cause pain over a large area, leading to difficulty performing everyday tasks. When a person has painful muscles and trigger points, it is sometimes called myofascial pain syndrome. Common locations for these problems are the arm and neck. Dry needling may release the tight muscle bands associated with trigger points and lead to decreased pain and improved function. Typically, positive results are apparent within 2-4 treatment sessions but can vary depending on the cause and duration of the symptoms and overall health of the patient.

“I have been utilizing dry needling with patients and the results have been immediate. Patients can stand up off the table and notice results,” said Goubeaux.
