Our treatments are non-surgical and designed to help patients recover the use of joints and muscles through targeted, specialized strength and movement training and education.
At our clinic, we emphasize manual therapy and one-on-one, personalized care. You can expect a custom treatment plan and frequent reassessment by your treating therapist. We focus on reducing pain, promoting healing, and restoring function and movement.
Ultrasound therapy. Many think of ultrasound as imaging technology, but when applied to soft tissues and joints, sound waves can also produce a massaging effect that helps reduce swelling +and decrease pain and stiffness.
Trigger-point therapy. Applying gentle pressure to a specific area of muscle where a patient experiences pain to alleviate that pain.
Injections. Anti-inflammatory injections: Injections are typically used for the short-term treatment of moderate to severe pain. Reducing pain helps you recover more comfortably so that you can return to your normal daily activities.
Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions.
Therapeutic exercises and stretches. Therapeutic exercise, also known as rehabilitation, is used to strengthen the musculature in the human body and increase range of motion. It is important to strengthen the muscle that surround the spine in order to prevent upper or low back injuries.
Shockwave therapy is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and musculoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues.
Diathermy. Diathermy is a therapeutic treatment most commonly prescribed for muscle and joint conditions. It uses a high-frequency electric current to stimulate heat generation within body tissues. The heat can help with various processes, including: increasing blood flow, relieving pain and improving inflammation.
Interferential current therapy is an effective therapy (uses a mid-frequency electrical signal) option used by or office to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, pain free state. The high frequency signals of an IFC penetrate through the skin into deeper lying muscle tissues that reduces or eliminates your pain safely.
Pettibon Cervical Traction is beneficial for individuals with cervical spine compression that is triggering neck pain, jaw pain, headaches, and migraines. The Pettibon cervical traction helps to re-establishes motion for the cervical and lumbar spines while also managing pain without the need for drugs.
Pettibon Wobble Chair. Adds strength and flexibility to the discs and ligaments of the low back. Reduces stress in the low back and aids in the prevention and recuperation of injuries. Assists in the healing of disc bulges and tears. Re-hydrates and inflates the lumbar discs and keeps them young and strong.
Whole-body vibration machine as part of a comprehensive therapy regimen has been tied to a broad set of health benefits, backed by both research and stories from or patients. Studies have even found that whole-body vibration exercises can increase bone density and promote neuromuscular adaptation — essentially the strengthening of muscle due to exercise — in some groups and situations.
PulStar offers gentle analysis and treatment for chronic or acute pain by using precise computer controlled impulses that will document your results.
Paraffin wax is not only beneficial to skin, but it also has many other health benefits. It has been known to relax muscles, increase blood flow, relieve joint stiffness and reduce pain.
Kinesio tape is used to restrict motion in a particular joint or muscle. The theory behind utilizing kinesiology tape is based on the fact that muscles actually heal faster if they are kept mobile. Therapeutic placement of kinesiology tape opens up injured muscles and allows lymphatic fluid to flow around the damaged tissue and cleanse it.
Ice Therapy. When dealing with injury or inflammatory conditions, ice therapy coupled with other anti-inflammatory treatments, is useful for the reduction of swelling and, in turn, pain. Many don’t realize just how troublesome inflammation is and how much pain it can cause. We generally use ice in acute conditions in order to cause vasoconstriction within the tissues, allowing the area of injury to heal faster.
Orthotics. Refers to the fitting of any appliance to help support or correct a biomechanical condition in the hips. Foot Orthotics are inserts placed in the shoe. Orthotics can be “custom-made” and prescribed by a health practitioner, or prefabricated (“off the shelf”).
