Forms of Treatment FAQ:
We offer many forms of therapy to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and restore mobility and strength into your life.
Treatment Procedures to Relieve Your Pain and Restore Life:
Chiropractic Adjustment Procedures: Perform chiropractic adjustments by hands or a device to apply a controlled force to a joint of the spine, moving it beyond its passive range of motion. The amount of force applied depends on the form of chiropractic adjustment used. The goal of the treatment is to relieve pain, increase physical functioning and maximize your body’s healing potential.
Cold Laser Therapy: The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. It is the consensus of experts that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.
Intersegmental Traction: It is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing spinal mobility.
Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.
Low Volt Muscle Stimulation: Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an internationally accepted and proven way of treating muscular injuries. It works by sending electronic pulses to the muscle needing treatment; this causes the muscle to exercise passively. What are benefits of EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation):
- Relaxation of muscle spasms
- Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy
- Increasing local blood circulation
- Muscle re-education
- Immediate post-surgical stimulation of calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis
- Maintaining or increasing range of motion
Neurological Stretching: Neurological conditions often result in chronic loss of joint motion due to structural changes in muscles, ligaments and tendons known as contractures.
Stretching has been used to treat and prevent contractures even though research has shown that a sustained stretch is needed to produce permanent changes in tissue extensibility.
Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy: Designed for anyone suffering from back pain, sciatica, leg pain, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, bulging disc, tingling, numbness, arm pain, neck pain, and some patients with spinal stenosis and failed low back syndrome.
The American Spinal Decompression Association brings together patients and leading specialists in Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression all across the country. Spinal Decompression Therapy has saved thousands of men and women from back pain without surgery.
