KC CORE specializes in the treatment of all muscle conditions including fibromyalgia. Our primary focus is pain control using myofascial release and trigger-point therapy to reduce muscle pain and dysfunction. Myofascial release in the key to any fibromyalgia treatment because it increases blood and lymphatic circulation, decreases sensitivity of pain receptors, and reduces chronic inflammation. KC CORE also works with our fibromyalgia patients to establish a home exercise program including nutrition, stretching, and progressive muscle relaxation.
KC CORE specializes in the treatment of all muscle conditions including low back pain. Our primary focus for low back pain is pain control using manual therapy to reduce muscle dysfunction. These techniques include myofascial release, Graston, trigger-point therapy, ultrasound, Active Release Technique, and joint manipulation. These techniques work alongside many other medical interventions for low back pain including physical therapy, steroid injections and laser therapy to speed healing time and reduce incidence of recurrence. Lumbar traction and bracing may be included in treatment if necessary. A home exercise program is also implemented for low back pain patients to reduce pain recurrence and improve joint and fascial mobility.
Plantar Fasciitis is foot pain that can cause limitations and pain in a variety of activities including running, walking, jogging, and hiking. KC CORE uses pain rehabilitation techniques including myofascial release, Graston, ultrasound, Active Release Technique and tri-planer stretching to treat Plantar Fasciitis. These techniques work alongside many other medical interventions for Plantar Fasciitis including physical therapy, corticosteroid injections and laser therapy to speed healing time and reduce incidence of recurrence.
