pain management

Danny Thornburg – “I feel much better now! – with #EncoreRehab Columbiana

“A pain in my neck kept me from doing activities that I once enjoyed. It was hard even to turn my head around to look behind me while backing my vehicle. A friend recommended I come to Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana for rehab. He had been to Encore for back pain and was pleased with his care, so I decided to come to Encore, too. I feel much better now.”~ Danny Thornburg, happy patient

We are very pleased that Mr. Thornburg completed his rehab successfully! He is not only back to enjoying his regular activities but has also improved his range of motion and experiences very little to no pain. We are proud to select him as our Patient of the Month at Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana!

Thank you for choosing Encore, Mr. Thornburg! We LOVE to see you move!

What is dry needling?Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin, monofilament needle to penetrate the skin to stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular tissue and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.How does dry needling work?When a needle tip passes through the skin and hits a trigger point, a local twitch response in the muscle is often seen and felt. The needles in the muscle produce a twitch response that is followed by a dramatic reduction in muscle tension which leads to pain reduction and increased function. Dry Needling also leads to the body’s release of endogenous opioids and initiates healing.Is dry needling painful?Mild discomfort is normal response that is often short lived. Patients may experience a deep ache or referred pain which is a positive indication that the procedure is being performed correctly. Most people feel the insertion of the needle. ,

Christal Smith – Physical therapy Exercises Alleviate Pain

Christal Smith Photo ColumbianaRevised

Before Physical Therapy, I had almost constant pain in my lower back, buttocks, and right leg. My leg would constantly go to sleep. The pain was caused from a herniated disk in my lower back that was pushing on the nerve. Physical Therapy taught me exercises to completely alleviate the pain and my leg no longer goes to sleep all the time. I would recommend Encore Rehab because the therapists are very knowledgeable and also very friendly. They make Physical Therapy fun!” ~ Christal Smith, patient
