Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), or muscle stim, is a chiropractic therapy used for a patient who has a lot of pain, tightness, or spasm in the muscle. Electrical current is used to cause rapid muscle contraction to help against inflammation and to relax the muscle. This helps the physical adjustment be more effective and last longer. During this process the body releases endorphins which can help alleviate pain and discomfort. Most find muscle stimulation very soothing and a great way to slow down and relax for a moment.
Back-On-Trac is a lumbar traction chair that safely stretches the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine using unilateral and bilateral flexion. By moving down and left to right the chair relieves pressure on associated nerves and increases the range of motion, flexibility, and mobility in the area. Many patients find this treatment effective and enjoyable.
Damaged, degenerative, bulging or herniated spinal discs are often the cause back and neck pain, or numbness and weakness in the arms and legs. Spinal Decompression helps repair the damage to herniated, bulging or degenerative discs non-surgically by sucking the material back into the disc and promoting passage of healing nutrients to foster a better healing environment. Spinal decompression not only addresses the symptoms but looks to address the problem first, and ultimately prevent a life altering surgery.
This machine helps alleviate knee pain by opening the joint and improving flexibility and mobility. Knee on trac is also very beneficial for osteoarthritis in the knee by increasing the joint space and volume of joint fluid around the knee.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. This pain free therapy can help with inflammation from injuries or surgery, arthritis, back and joint pain, and many other conditions. Most patients begin to feel results after just a few short sessions.
