Chiropractic Adjustments: we utilize various techniques to stimulate your nervous system with the intent to help your body regain control of and improve your health. Health as defined by the National Institute of Health is: “a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” It is for this very reason that so many people from professional athletes to everyday families choose Chiropractic Care as the treatment of choice for their Health and Wellness.
Cold Laser Therapy: When laser light is absorbed by living tissue, it triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced, released and carried by blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system. Here are some of the specific physiologic responses:
*Reduction in pain by causing production of natural pain killers.
*Reduction of inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes that create swelling, redness, pain and heat.
*Release of tight muscles that create chronic pain, joint problems and decreased mobility.
*Faster bone repair
Inter-segmental Traction: is used to separate and stretch the spinal segments to promote distraction and gliding of the spinal joints and to dissipate joint swelling. This involves laying on a table while rollers travel up and down the spine which creates the traction and movement of the joints.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation: high volt pulsed and interferential current are used to treat edema, inflammation, muscle spasm, limited mobility and re-education of muscle function. It can also be used to treat pain, adhesions as well as be used as a passive exercise and relax tissues. Small sticky electrodes are placed on the body and the stimulation is then passed into the affected tissues to the patients tolerance.
Ultrasound: is used to provide deep penetrating heat within the tissue and produces a micro-massage within the tissue by breaking down scar tissue and reducing edema. It will also produce a mild sedative effect where muscles, tendons and ligaments attach to the bone.
Manual Therapy: manual therapy techniques include soft tissue and joint mobilization, manipulation, manual lymphatic drainage, manual traction, trigger point therapy and myofascial release. These are used to treat restricted motion of soft tissues, articular structures, neural or vascular systems. This is a very deep tissue treatment that helps restore proper motion and function to the soft tissue and speeds recovery after an injury.
Therapeutic Exercise: are performed in either an active, active assisted or passive approach. They are reasonable and medically necessary for a loss or restriction of joint motion, strength, functional capacity of mobility that has resulted from a specific injury or chronic posture problems.
Massage Therapy: is s soft relaxing way to reduce stress physically and emotionally by stroking, compressing and percussing muscles. This is your typical spa type relaxing therapy that is a great way to improve blood flow, reduce muscle tension and overall help relax and reduce your stress level.
Ear Candling: is a natural, non-intrusive procedure that may help alleviate the painful effects of chronic headaches or sinus conditions, ear infections, allergies or vertigo, as well as minor hearing loss due to excessive earwax build up.
Paraffin Wax Bath: Paraffin wax has a very high “heat capacity,” meaning it is able to absorb and retain a great amount of heat. Very simply, the heat that goes into melting the paraffin is released when it solidifies into a custom-fitted, warm “glove,” thus transferring the heat deep into the affected joint or area. Each dip in a paraffin wax bath delivers a layer of fast-acting heat therapy. This soothing, fast acting heat relief of minor aches and pains. Paraffin Wax Bath therapy is one of the most effective methods of applying heat to relieve pain. Fast-Acting Heat Therapy Drug-Free, Penetrating Heat Soothes Pain and Stiffness. Effective on: Arthritis, Inflammation, Joint Stiffness, Muscle Spasms, Sports Injuries, and Dry, Cracked Skin.
Aquamassage: is a dry hydro massage bed that you lay on while pressure controlled jets under the table forces water against your back. This row of jets travel up and down your body during the treatment session delivering a relaxing massage while you lay there. You stay completely dry and clothed for the entire treatment session.
