I am Rachel Henderson, Doctor of Physical Therapy. I do things differently at my practice to guide your to living your best life.
Dr. Rachel started in the rehabilitation world at a young age, initially working at her mother's physical therapy clinic. While recovering from her own injury, Dr. Rachel realized she is fascinated by the human body. This led her to Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI where she competed for the Track & Field Team prior to completing her Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree in 2012. Dr. Rachel then advanced her skills with the Orthopedic Residency at the University of Wisconsin. Eager to best serve her patients, Dr. Rachel learned Trigger Point Dry Needling and Primal Reflex Release Technique. In 2018, Dr. Rachel moved her practice to Pineville, NC. She owns Ignite Wellness Physical Therapy, a cash based practice, and is a Master Instructor for Primal Reflex Release Technique.
I am fascinated by muscles and the way the human body moves. After having sports injuries, I became passionate about understanding how to heal the body and optimize function.
Different that most PT clinics. More thorough and more hands on. Many patients feel much better day 1.
Everyone experiences the technique differently. It can be uncomfortable but it is one of the fastest ways to release pain and restore proper muscle tension. Dry needling is also very safe. I have been certified by MyoPain Seminars and using the technique for over 7 years.
