We always recommend you call your company before starting treatment so that you understand your plan and coverage. We accept cash, credit and check payments.

I have suffered from tension headaches for the last 7 years. I have tried many different things including burning the nerve endings in my neck and a shot of cortisone and steroids. The shot worked temporarily, but when I started physical therapy, that’s when the progress really started.

Ashley Kuhnau is a Physical Therapist Assistant with Advantage Rehab Inc. and the director of clinical operations. A 2002 graduate of Lake Area Technical Institute in SD with an Associate’s degree in Physical Therapy and has been with Advantage Rehab Inc. from the beginning.

She enjoys getting to know and treating patients as well as helping them discover their unique learning styles and areas of growth. It is important to her that each individual she is fortunate to treat as a patient understand their body and their symptoms, and never leave without a full understanding of their injury and why they feel what they do.

Since working with ARI she has gained a great understanding of those who suffer with chronic pain, which is a growing issue for many. This has allowed her to sharpened her skills in neck and back pain treatments as well as educating patients in how to live life with their pain. Dealing with chronic back pain personally has allowed her the skills and empathy necessary to be diligent in practice. 

Along with years of treating chronic pain she noticed a continual need for further care for many who suffered.  Going back to school she is also a Certified Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Certified Life Coach and is excited to also bring this avenue to no only her patients but the area.

YOUR PATH TO RECOVERY BEGINS HERE

Dry needling is a safe and effective method of treatment performed by a licensed physical therapist that works to reduce pain and muscle tension, while simultaneously improving mobility. It has been proven to treat numerous musculoskeletal issues, including acute and chronic injuries, overuse injuries, neck pain, headaches, back pain, sciatica, muscle spasms, muscle strains, tendinitis, knee pain, hip pain, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and more. If you are in Alexandria dealing with one of these conditions and you’re looking for relief, or if you’d like to gain more information on how dry needling could benefit you, contact Advantage Rehab today!

This treatment method is used by our licensed Alexandria physical therapists as a way to relieve pain. When performing dry needling, our physical therapist will insert a sterile acupuncture needle through the skin, into the underlying tendons, ligaments, or muscles that have been affected, in order to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, and improve mobility. While it is a common misconception, dry needling is not acupuncture. It is based on a modern scientific study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems.
