Massage therapy is often used in combination with spinal manipulation to provide our patients with a comprehensive chiropractic experience. Massage therapy techniques can range from a light stroking sensation to deep pressure and is designed to relieve tension in the muscles, skin, tendons and ligaments. Some of the most common types of massage therapy include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage and Trigger Point massage. Each unique type of massage treatment focuses on a different method or area of the body to provide pain relief, improve circulation, reduce swelling and relax sore muscles.
Injury Rehabilitation and Corrective Exercises
To help our patients heal more efficiently, we often recommend corrective exercises that can be completed outside of the office. This type of injury rehabilitation can typically be completed by patients of all ages and is safe to practice on your own.
Through a series of repetitive movements, you can correct a specific dysfunction in the spine and surrounding areas while improving your posture and gradually increasing your overall activity level. Some of the other benefits of corrective exercises include pain reduction, decrease chance of aggravating an injury, enhanced athletic performance, improved balance and increased strength. Our doctors will work closely with you to tailor an injury rehabilitation plan that meets your specific needs and make sure that you feel comfortable completing your corrective exercises on your own.
This non-surgical spinal decompression option is a passive therapy option favored by many in the chiropractic care field. Through the use of a motorized device, our doctors are able to gently and gradually stretch and relax your spinal discs. This type of stretching of the spine safely repositions and changes the force of the spine to relieve pressure from the spinal discs. Spinal decompression therapy is an ideal treatment option for patients who are suffering from herniated or bulging discs, as it can help the discs to retract and take pressure off of your nerves and other structures in the spine.
The treatment is also great for promoting the movement of water, oxygen and other nutrient-rich fluids to the spinal discs, encouraging them to heal. There are 3 different phases involved in spinal decompression therapy, including:
- Phase I – The initial non-surgical decompression treatment.
- Phase II – The stabilization of supporting structures via rehabilitation exercises that strengthen the muscles that support the spine and ensure successful future treatments.
- Phase III: The final phase is designed to further strengthen and stabilize. With the introduction of core rehabilitation exercises and continued decompression treatment, the spine can be brought back to full health.
Other conditions that can benefit from spinal decompression treatment include back and neck pain, sciatica and degenerative disc disease.
The physiological process of how this piece of equipment works is called Photobiomodulation. Our machine is unique in that the laser sends out multiple beams of varying wavelengths, which most others do not. The wavelengths are between 810 nanometers to 980 nanometers allowing the light photons from the laser to penetrate deep into the body for maximum absorption of the laser photons. When absorbed into the cell this wavelength affects the mitochondria to produce an important product called adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP).
By stimulating this action the result will speed the healing and overall health of the tissue it is penetrating, whether it is nerves, intervertebral discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, etc. Also, the laser forces the cells to release nitric oxide (NO) which is a vasodilator. This specific action will increase blood flow therefore bringing oxygen, sugars, salts and other vital nutrients important for healing and increased recovery while removing cellular waste.
Lastly, the cells stimulate reactive oxygen species (ROS) which is another important factor for healing and recovery. All of these mechanisms from photobiomodulation equate to a reduction in pain, a reduction in inflammation and the acceleration of healing process.
Most conditions require anywhere between 6-10 treatments and each treatment session only lasts about 5-10 minutes
This is another passive treatment option that uses high-frequency sound waves to penetrate the surface of the skin into the soft tissue below. With a vibration capability of one million times per second, therapeutic ultrasound creates a heat response that is easily absorbed by the ligaments, tendons, fascia and any scar tissues in the body. These ultrasound waves also cause the surrounding tissues to vibrate and therefore break down any unhealthy calcium or hard tissue deposits that may be contributing to your condition.
Additionally, the increase in heat caused by the ultrasound is also effective in increasing the extensibility of the ligaments, tendons, fibrous joint capsules and scar tissue to reduce pain, muscle spasms, increase blood flow, reduce swelling and promote a more healthy healing process.
One of the greatest benefits of this type of chiropractic treatment is the fact that it can dramatically reduce healing times of certain soft tissue injuries that may keep patients sidelined from work or sports activities. Other common conditions that can be treated successfully with therapeutic ultrasound include non-acute joint swelling and tendinitis.
This passive and non-invasive therapeutic treatment option is designed to aid in the relief of inflammatory pain, reduce muscle spasms and boost the acceleration of soft tissue healing. Our chiropractic care team finds interferential therapy to be especially effective in treating a variety of common conditions, including:
- Circulatory and Muscular Disorders
- Joint Stiffness
- And More
Interferential therapy works by delivering small electrical currents to specific areas of the body through electrode patches. This allows for a combination of low and high frequency impulses to travel into the soft tissues, where the electrical currents are able to create chemical, thermal and physiologic responses. Muscle strains, ligament sprains and muscle spasms all respond very well to this type of treatment.
During the treatment process, patients will feel a slight “tingling” sensation as the electrical currents activate natural endorphins, providing fast pain-relief. Additionally, interferential therapy can help to reduce inflammation, increase blood circulation and stimulate hormones that help the body heal faster.
Intersegmental spinal traction therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that induces passive mobilization into the vertebral spinal discs and joints. By gently stretching out the spinal ligaments and discs, this treatment is effective in increasing mobility and improving the circulation of spinal fluids. Ideal for gently reestablishing the normal range of motion of the spine, intersegmental traction therapy is also great for reducing muscle spasms and relaxing the muscles surrounding the spine.
Additionally, a variety of different patients can benefit from this treatment option as it works to restore proper joint movement, circulation and mobility by gently elongating the postural muscles of the spine in a comfortable manner. Other benefits of intersegmental spinal traction include:
- Reduces muscle spasms
- Relaxes spinal muscles
- Promotes the recovery and healing process
- Increases mobility and blood flow
- Stretches ligaments and muscles gently and safely
Cupping is Traditional Chinese Medicine that was developed over 2,000 years ago. Cupping is used to promote blood flow and heal the body. It is most commonly used to relieve pain and stiffness in the body specifically the muscles. Cupping is to enhance circulation, pull toxins out of the body and removes “heat” which helps relives sore muscles. By placing a glass or a plastic cup onto the skin, the therapist creates a vacuum in the cup which draws the skin, muscle, and fascia up into the cup.
- Promotes circulation
- Provides a feeling of relief from physical and emotional tensions
- Remove toxins
- Softens tissues to regain elasticity
- Reduces inflammation
- Helps the nervous system
- Relives headaches and migraines
