In addition to our traditional chiropractic treatment, we utilize many other modalities to help restore function through hands-on care. These modalities help decrease pain, return strength and increase range of motion. This allows a return to an active and unrestricted life full of purpose and freedom from pain. A few of the modalities we utilize in our clinic include:
- Electrical Muscle Stimulation
- Mechanical and Manual Traction
- Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
These modalities are an added benefit to our body as education of physical awareness that will help prevent future injury and promote good lifelong health.
The Ultrasound machines by utilizing high or low frequency sound waves that will penetrate deep into the targeted tissues and muscles to cause warming and relaxation effect to help relaxed muscle stiffness, spasm and minimizing scar tissue formation. Through higher frequency of sound waves, the machine promotes vessel vasodilatation (enlargement) to increase circulation and assist healing. In lower frequencies, the machine will help decrease tissue inflammation.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical stimulation machine helps with increase muscle strength, decrease muscle spasm, and promotes blood supply to the targeted area to promote healing. This allows oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the area for tissue healing, as well as the removal of waste products from the injured site.
Mechanical and Manual Traction
Traction involves the application of tension to a specific area in order to give a stretch to specific tissues. This helps to decrease muscle spasm, nerve pressure, and increase range of motion (mobility).
