Kleinpeter Physical Therapy Launches New Trigger Point Dry Needling Service

Kleinpeter Physical Therapy are now offering Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) for Muscular Tension and Spasms at their Baton Rouge and Zachary, Louisiana Locations.


San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/22/2013 -- Anyone who leads an active lifestyle is likely to require physical therapy at some point in their lives, owing to the stresses they place upon their bodies. Physical therapy takes many forms, as those stresses can take their toll on muscle, soft tissue, tendon, ligament or even bone. Kleinpeter Physical Therapy are a Baton Rouge Physical Therapy specialist with a team who have one of the most comprehensive skillsets for dealing with a wide variety of ailments and injuries, and have now added Trigger Point Dry Needling to their available services, for help with muscular tension and spasm.

Dry needling is named so because it uses solid filiform needles and not syringes, and does not inject any substance into the body. Rather, the stimulation of the foreign body can cause a tiny reaction in the muscle which can unlock the previous state that was causing the tension or spasm.

The Kleinpeter practice was set up by physical therapist Karl Kleinpeter, and has proven so successful that they now have two practices in Baton Rouge and Zachary, Louisiana. The new service is available by appointment in both practices so those in the area needn’t go far in order to get relief. The company also provide sports medicine, managed care, treatment for work injuries, spine and back problems and more.

A spokesperson for Kleinpeter Physical Therapy explained, “Muscle tension and spasm is one of the things that we are most commonly asked to treat, but until now effective treatment has proven difficult. Massage has varying effects depending on the cause of the tension and some people simply cannot relax muscles voluntarily. Trigger Point Dry Needling is a medical alternative to acupuncture that has been shown to be effective in these cases so our people have upskilled to provide pain relief in a new form to new clients.”
