New Therapy Technique Provides Quick Pain Relief!

Heath Schneider

Our Lafayette therapist, Heath Schneider has been certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN). It is a treatment for muscular tightness and spasm. When the nerves are irritated, they cause a protective spasm of the muscles to which they are connected.

This may cause conditions such as headaches, TMJ, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, decreased mobility, and chronic pain. Small, thin needles are inserted in the muscle at the trigger points. The muscles would then contract and release, improving flexibility of the muscle and decreasing symptoms.

Our Broussard therapist, Rene LeBlanc, also offers this technique in our Broussard location.

Helpful Tip – Do You Have Good Posture?

Do You Have Good Posture

Good posture throughout the day helps prevent neck and shoulder problems.

For most people, the following tips will improve posture: lift the chest up slightly from the breast bone, pull shoulder blades gently together and down, lengthen the back of the neck as if string were attached to the back of the head and pulling toward the ceiling.
