Versailles Health Care Center offers Dry Needling

Physical Therapist Stephanie Goubeaux.
The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center offers dry needling, which is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, and even pain and injury prevention, with very few side effects. Stephanie Goubeaux, Physical Therapist at Versailles Health Care Center, is certified in dry needling and received her training at KinetaCore in West Virginia.

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.
