Hydro Massage Therapy
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage & muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood
circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, & aid in recovery and range of motion.
Our Clinic offers the one of the areas only Decompression suite. Decompression Therapy is one of the most effective forms of chiropractic care. Spinal decompression stretches & lengthens the spine to relieve the pressure placed on the vertebrae & discs from certain spine conditions, such as herniated &
bulging discs, spinal stenosis & many other conditions.
Electric Stimulation Therapy
Using Electric Stimulation Therapy like a TENS Unit is the most common form of electrical stimulation. These units feature electrodes that are placed over the painful area with the user having the power to control the intensity of electrical stimulation. These units help block the transmission of pain signals
along the nerves & also release the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins to aid in your treatment plan.
Ultra Sound Therapy
Ultrasound Therapy is used to minimize muscle pain & movement dysfunction. Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to your treated tissues. This treatment may help reduce stiffness, swelling, & pain, increase circulation, & promote pain-free movement. Ultrasound therapy may
be used alone or in conjunction with stretching, therapeutic massage, heat, or gentle chiropractic manipulation. Ultrasound therapy is a painless procedure,
& many people find it relaxing.
Cupping & Graston Therapy
Cupping therapy is a therapy in which glass cups are suctioned to the skin using heat to create a vacuum. This therapy helps to eliminate toxins, relieve congestion, improve circulation & relieve muscle tension. These cups can be left stationary or slid along oiled skin, depending on the ailment & doctors
recommendation. While these cups can be applied to just about any area of the body, it is common to have cupping performed on the back, neck,
shoulders and thighs. Cupping is generally painless and can be as effective as massage for muscle problems. The Graston Therapy technique is a form of
manual therapy known as soft tissue instrument assisted mobilization. It is one of many manual therapy approaches that uses instruments with a
specialized form of massage/scraping the skin gently. The therapy is designed to help identify areas of restriction & break up scar tissue.
Dry Needling Therapy
Dry Needling is a general term for a therapeutic treatment procedure that involves multiple advances of a filament needle into the muscle in the area of the
body which produces pain & typically contains a trigger point. There is no inject-able solution & typically the needle that is used is very thin. Most patients
will not even feel the needle penetrate the skin. Dry needling is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, rehabilitation from injury, & even pain &
injury prevention. This technique is unequaled in finding and eliminating neuromuscular dysfunction that leads to pain & functional deficits.
Kinesio Taping Therapy
Kinesio Taping Therapy is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique. This Therapy is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support & stability to muscles & joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the
