Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression provides static and intermittent traction. It gently pulls the cervical spine or lumbar spine in opposite directions to draw the soft tissue around the cervical or lumbar joints and separate the distance between bone sections of the vertebra. This helps relieve peripheral radicular pain associated with: protruding discs, spinal root impingement, bulging discs, hypo mobility, herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, posterior facet syndrome, compressions fracture, acute facet problem, radicular pain, discogenic pain and prolaspsed discs. In addition, we have carpal tunnel attachments to reduce symptoms of carpel tunnel syndrome.

Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction is a means of inducing passive motion into your spine for the purpose of increasing mobility and stretching spinal joints. The discs of your spine have a poor blood supply. Sustenance is accomplished and maintained through spinal joint movement. Proper spinal movement (mechanics) allow needed proteins/nutrients to enter the disc. This also allows for the removal of waste, decreasing the likelihood of bone spur formation (degenerative arthritis). Misalignment of the spine prevents this exchange from occurring. A lack of proper circulation can lead to disc thinning and degeneration of the spine. Intersegmental traction helps restore proper motion and prevent this from occurring.​Patients lie supine on a table which has vibrating roller-type cams beneath its surface. These massaging rollers travel slowly up and down the spine. Most patients find this form of traction to be very relaxing and therapeutic.

Ultra Sound

Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-frequency sound waves to promote healing and relieve pain in various parts of the body. During the treatment, a handheld device called an ultrasound probe is applied to the skin, emitting sound waves that penetrate deep into the tissues. These sound waves create gentle vibrations, which help increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and stimulate tissue repair. Ultrasound therapy is commonly used to treat conditions such as muscle strains, joint pain, tendonitis, and bursitis. It is considered safe and effective, with minimal side effects. The duration and frequency of ultrasound therapy sessions may vary depending on the specific condition being treated.

Interferential (Electro-Therapy)

It is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing.

Tiny amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, a low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain.

Benefits conditions such as: Back Pain, PMS Discomfort, Frozen Shoulder, Migraine Headaches, Nerve Pain, Chronic Strains & Sprains, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bursitis, Sports Injury, Foot Pain, ​Tendinitis

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a specialized therapy that uses an increase in atmospheric pressure to allow the body to incorporate more oxygen into blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid, and other body fluids. The greater the pressure (above 1ATA) the more easily the lungs absorb the oxygen, and at a greater volume.

Mild Hyperbaric Therapy is a safe method of delivering more oxygen to the body at the cellular level. mHBOT speeds recovery of the body, increases energy and provides the optimal environment for the body to carry out vital cell processes, thereby increasing the capacity for the body to heal itself. Mild Hyperbaric Therapy allows for healing at the cellular level, which is critical for changes to be made which in turn affect healthy tissue formation, making it possible for healthier organs and ultimately a healthier body overall.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a effective treatment for muscular pain and trigger points. Very thin needles are placed into the muscle to release the muscular tension or trigger point. The needles are placed into the muscle creating a muscle twitch or contraction. The muscle twitch releases the trigger point allowing the muscle to relax, restoring the muscle function and decreasing the patients pain. The benefits of dry needling include a decrease in pain, increased mobility, and increased strength.

Benefits conditions such as: Acute or Chronic Injuries,
Headaches, Neck/Back Pain, Shoulder Pain, Trigger Points or “Knots”, Hip/Knee Pain, Tendonitis, Elbow Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Muscle Spasms, Arthritis…..And Many More
