Modalities that we use:
To tolerance, and various manual therapy techniques to enhance joint and muscle function, improve circulation, increase metabolism, and promotes the healing process.
Is helpful since disks have a poor blood supply; they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause disk thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restores necessary elasticity and motion to the spine. It also provides for increased mobility and improves circulation of spinal fluids.
This therapy is administered directly to the area of complaint, penetrating deep into the body. The rise in temperature, increases blood flow, relaxes muscle spasms, positively affects damaged tissues, and speeds the healing process. Patient Benefits of Ultrasound include it being highly effective in treating calcium deposition, stimulates healing without irritation, increasing metabolism and improving flood flow. Ultrasound also reduces nerve root irritation and enhances the body’s natural healing ability.
This therapy reduces pain sensation, helps decrease swelling, promotes general muscle tone, and speeds the healing process. It is useful in many conditions in which body relaxation, the reduction of swelling, and muscle mobilization is desired.
The benefits of chiropractic manipulation of the spine are well documented and aid the patient by facilitating the reduction of nerve root irritation, optimizing the health of body systems, and by promoting enhanced range of functional motion. This therapy will be utilized as needed or determined as needed throughout the course of treatment. There are some patients who do not require manipulation and/or are unable to receive this type of treatment for various reasons.
To improve functional performance, increase active and passive range of motion, promote proper scar tissue formation, increase strength of tensile tissue, and prevent the build-up of intra-articular adhesions. The use of a treadmill will be incorporated as soon as tolerable. This therapy will benefit the patient by increasing anaerobic endurance and increasing blood flow thereby allowing for expedition of waste products that occur because of the types of injuries the patient has. Flexibility and strengthening of the lower extremity muscle groups will aid the patient’s recovery by placing less strain on core musculature, ligaments, and pelvic positioning.
HYDRO MASSAGE (BED): Provides temporary relief of minor aches and pains. Reduces level of stress and anxiety. Deep relaxation provides feeling of well-being.
Without accompanying side effects. It can help regenerate tissue, reduce inflammation, decrease pain, increase immunity and increase blood circulation to the injury area.
