Cold Laser ~ Low Level Light Therapy
Cold Laser dramatically reduces musculoskeletal pain and inflammation as well as promoting soft tissue repair wherever the laser beam is applied. Cold Laser has undergone over 1000 published laboratory studies and is already proven effective in over 100 successful double blind controlled clinical trials. These trials concluded that Cold Laser was successful in relieving acute and chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, sports injuries, pain from rheumatoid arthritis and chronic joint disorders.
Vax-D ~ Vertebral Axial Decompression
VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for chronic back pain from disc and facet joint disease. VAX-D is an effective and safe procedure. VAX-D can relieve the pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome and radicular (nerve root) pain. Patients can avoid the merry-go-round of drugs and non-specific treatments. VAX-D is a non-invasive treatment for acute or chronic back pain and radicular pain and symptoms (leg pain and numbness) from herniated or degenerated discs and posterior facet syndrome.
Therapeutic Exercises & Activities
therapeutic exercises use the bodies movement to restore normal function in diseased or injured tissues. As with any type of therapy, a therapeutic exercise program is designed to correct specific disabilities of the individual patient. Among the types of therapeutic exercise are those that (1) increase or maintain mobility of the joints and surrounding soft tissues, (2) develop coordination through control of individual muscles, (3) increase muscular strength and endurance, and (4) promote relaxation and relief of tension.
There are many benefits to ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy treatment benefits include the following: stimulates blood flow to the affected area, which starts the healing process; reduces scar tissue, chronic swelling and inflammation; speeds up your metabolism and improves circulation in your affected area; reduces irritation to nerve roots; reduces muscle spasms; gently massages muscles and tendons, which helps them to relax and recover from tissue damage.
Electrical Muscle Stim ~ Interferential Therapy
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or TENS, is a pain management technique that uses electricity to help alleviate pain. TENS treatment involves placing small electrodes, devices that conduct electricity, on the skin over the part of the body that's in pain. The electrodes release small waves of electricity, sending tiny electrical impulses through the electrodes to the painful joint or area of the body. The electricity blocks the activity of the pain receptors, interrupting the pain signals from the nerves to the brain.
Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. But you don't have to be in the Olympics to benefit from sports massage. Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. The massage therapist generally concentrates on a specific problem area.
