Chiropractic Spinal Manipulation: Perform chiropractic adjustments by hands or a device to apply a controlled force to a joint of the spine. The goal of the treatment is to relieve pain, increase physical functioning and maximize your body’s healing potential.
Massage Therapy: Massage is the working of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being.
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
Electrical Nerve and 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
- Maintaining or increasing range of motion
MicroCurrent Therapy: MicroCurrent mimics the electrical signals from the brain to the message center of the muscle, which is the tendon, the MicroCurrent stimulates the tendon thus aiding in strengthening the muscles.
The FDA has approved Micro Current therapy for the following conditions:
- To increase local blood flow and circulation
- To increase range of motion
- To decrease muscular spasm
- For neuro-muscular reeducation
- To prevent or retard muscular tissue atrophy
Spinal 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.
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.
Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation is an important part of helping patients get the most possible benefit in the third phase of healing or remodel phase. Essentially, rehabilitation (physical medicine using active and resistive exercise) can help patients recover from physical injuries as quickly and completely as possible. It can be thought of as alignment and balance for your body.
