OUR SERVICES

ADJUSTMENTS

 

Spinal manipulation, also called spinal manipulative therapy or manual therapy, combines moving and jolting joints,  exercise, and physical medicine. It's designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It's often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain, and chronic pain symptoms.

ELECTRO-MUSCLE STIMULATION

 

Electrical muscle stimulation, also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or electromyostimulation, is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling is also called trigger point dry needling or myofascial trigger point dry needling. It is done by acupuncturists, some chiropractors, medical doctors, and some physical therapists (PTs) to treat myofascial pain. The word “myofascial” is made up of the roots “myo” (which refers to muscle) and “fascia” (which refers to the tissue that connects muscle)

ULTRASOUND

 

Ultrasound therapy is the use of sound waves to treat medical problems, especially musculoskeletal problems like inflammation from injuries (sprains, tendinitis, bursitis). It has been a popular therapy for decades, it is a modality that has been used since the 50's to help heal patients with inflammation and pain.

PARAFFIN BATH TREATMENTS

 

Paraffin wax treatments are fast-acting, drug-free, and versatile, providing heat therapy for many different applications from arthritis joint pain relief to salon hand, foot, and facial services.

INFRARED THERAPY

 

Infrared therapy is a method that uses light to treat acute or chronic pain. It is a simple and painless therapy that is being studied for use in various fields of medicine

ICE - HEAT THERAPY

ICE therapy treatment is applied by way of a massage and helpds decrease the blood flow a fluid to the applied area. This helps by reducing inflammation and pain in the applied area. MOIST & DRY HEAT Therapy is used to increase your skin temperature with very little increase in the temperature of deeper areas of your body. Thus allowing your muscles to relax and increase bloodflow to the area. Allowing tissue to heal and promote better stretching. 

NON SURGICAL DECOMPRESSION

Spinal decompression therapy, also known as non-surgical spinal decompression, is a practice that utilizes spinal decompression tables to relieve pain caused by bulging or herniated disc tissue. It allows your spine to move back into place and heal, alleviating the pain this condition causes and allowing you to ignore expensive surgery!
