Cupping

The staff at Kinetix is now offering the newly popular, but centuries old myofascial treatment called cupping. Using suction cups to increase blood flow to the effected area, this treatment was popularized by the United States swimming team in the most recent summer Olympics.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a technique physical therapists use (where allowed by state law) to treat myofascial pain. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points.

Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.

Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research .

Body Fat Percentage Testing

 

An effective method for measuring body composition, our highly trained staff will  perform a skin fold assessment using seven sites (meaning parts of the body). The staff member doing the test first pinches the skin. Then, he or she uses the skin caliper device to measure the thickness of the skin fold for each site. Each protocol has specific sites for testing, commonly including the chest, arms, abs and thighs. After plugging the numbers into a formula, practitioners can estimate body fat percentage.
