Dr. Kayla Kukahiko from Fuller Physical Therapy was in studio Tuesday morning to talk to WPKY about their new facility and their grand opening.

Dr. Kukahiko told listeners that the new facility, which is privately owned by Chris Fuller, is currently open and seeing patients. Because it is a privately owned facility patients do not have to be referred by a doctor, although they will accept doctor’s referrals. They also accept most insurances and are a provider plus for Alliance Coal.

The new facility is state-of-the-art and even includes a new aqua massage machine. The machine uses water pressure through a barrier between the machine and the patient to massage a patient’s muscles in a particular spot or throughout the whole body. Use of the aqua massage machine is free for all their patients and is available to non-patients for a dollar a minute.

Dr. Kukahiko also mentioned that all the therapists at the facility are certified in trigger point dry needling, which is similar to acupuncture but puts very thin needles into tightened muscle groups to help them relax and ease pain. Their staff includes Dr. Kukahiko, and Princeton natives Michael Blythe and Dana Dyer.

Fuller Physical Therapy will have a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, March 14th, starting at noon. They will have free Subway sandwiches, cake, and tours of the new facility. They are located at 2072 US Highway 62 West in Princeton.

For more information or to schedule an appointment you can call them at 270-365-5226 or message them on their Facebook page, Fuller Physical Therapy.
