Chiropractic Adjustment

 

The Chiropractic adjustment is to relieve subluxations of the spine. The Dr. does this by applying pressure to the vertebra and giving it a chance to move back into its natural place.

 

 

 

This technique helps release pain in these areas:

 

- Neck

- Mid back

- Low back

- Hip

- Shoulder

- Wrist

- Knee

- Ankle

Acupuncture

 

Acupuncture is a process of inserting very thin needles into the skin at certain points on the body.  These needles are inserted at different depths for different effects.  It originated in China and has been used there for thousands of years to treat ailments.  It wasn’t until the twentieth century that is spread from Europe to Canada and then to the United States.  Today it is used to treat many different things.  

 

- Alleviating pain

Headaches and migraines

Anxiety

Depression

Insomnia

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Sinuses

Irritable bowel syndrome

Menstrual pain/PMS

Smoking addiction

Infertility

Bladder infections

Stress

Cold Laser Therapy

 

A new, non-surgical approach using the MICROLIGHT 830 Laser For Cold Laser Therapy. Patients are now being accepted for Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

 

 

 

 

The MI 830 is also used to treat:

 

- Arthritis

Low back pain

Repetitive stress injury

Tendonitis

Sprains

Strains

Fibromyalgia

Post-operative pain

Tennis elbow

Soft tissue injuries

Muscle spasms

And many more!

Ultrasound Therapy

 

Ultrasound therapy is the process of introducing an injury to high energy sound waves.  These sound waves can not be heard but can penetrate deep into the tissue.

 

 

Ultrasound therapy is used to treat sports or other injuries such as:

 

- Knee

Foot

Lower leg

Thigh

Ankle

Hip

Groin

Tennis elbow

Shoulder

Electric Muscle Stimulation

 

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated.

 

The impulses mimic the action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. EMS is both a form of electrotherapy and of muscle training. It is cited by important authors as complementary technique for sport training, and there is published research on the results obtained. In the United States, EMS devices are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Microcurrent Therapy

 

Microcurrent therapy, commonly referred as MENS (Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation), is extremely small pulsating currents of electricity. These currents are finely tuned to the level of the normal electrical exchanges which take place at body’s cellular level. These currents being more biologically compatible than any other electrical stimulation device, have the ability to penetrate the cell - as opposed to passing over the cell as other stimulation devices do. It works on ARNDT - SCHULTZ Law which states that : “Weak stimuli increases physiological activity and very strong stimuli inhibit or abolish activity.”

 

This subsensory current normalizes the ordinary activity taking place within the cell if it has been injured or otherwise compromised. The external addition of microcurrent will increase the production of ATP, protein synthesis, oxygenation, ion exchange, absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste products, and neutralizes the oscillating polarity of deficient cells. Homeostasis is restored. The biologically sensitive stimulation effect of microcurrent picks up where the body’s own electrical current fails, as the human body must adhere to the natural law of electricity which is : “ electricity must take path of least resistance.”. Therefore, its electrical current is destined to move around an injury or defect, rather than through it. By normalizing cell activity, inflammation is reduced while collagen producing cells are  increased. Healthy cell metabolism creates a healthy, pain free internal environment.

Foot Orthotics

 

Foot orthotics have been used for decades in the treatment of various different foot problems. Since the mid 1980's they have become increasingly important in the treatment of various sports related injuries where overuse of muscles, tendons and ligaments occur.

 

Conditions such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, knee pain, bunions, corns, calluses and a host of other foot problems, leg, knee and postural complaints have all been known to improve with the use of orthotic appliances.
