Kinetacore Functional Dry Needling

Functional dry needling (FDN) is a treatment technique used in the management of musculoskeletal pain. “Dry needling” is a generic term for the insertion and manipulation of an acupuncture needle into areas of soft tissue that are causing pain. These areas, referred to as “trigger points”, are highly sensitive muscle bands that are maladaptively shortened. When the needle is inserted into these points most clients will feel a dull cramping sensation or “twitch response” which is the sensation of the muscle releasing. By releasing these areas of tension the muscles are then able to move smoothly through a full range of motion. This in turn allows joints to glide correctly, prevents adverse tension on neurological tissue, and can aid in return to exercise & activity.

Shift Concussion Management Program

A concussion is a type of brain injury caused by a blow, “jolt” or bump to the head that temporarily changes the way your brain works—causing you to experience symptoms like headaches and dizziness. A concussion may also occur from a blow to the body that causes your head to jolt back-and-forth or side-to-side. A concussion may or may not involve a loss of consciousness. In fact, very few concussions actually result in loss of consciousness.

Acupuncture is a treatment technique to reduce or relieve pain, encourage healing and improve function. It has been used for hundreds of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine and more recently is gaining popularity in Western medicine. We are pleased to offer our clients acupuncture. Edmonton residents benefit from this holistic health practice that involves the insertion of small needles at specific points along the body’s meridians. It is safe and effective and is often used as an alternative to medications and even surgery. Acupuncture produces changes in nerves, muscles, connective tissue, hormones and circulation. By stimulating specific points, acupuncture releases the body’s own painkillers: endorphin and serotonin.
