Chiropractic care involves manipulations and joint adjustments that help restore balance to the body. Chiropractic care has proven to be effective at relieving lower back, neck, shoulder and headache pain. It can easily treat injuries sustained from automobile accidents, falls and other types of injuries. Chiropractic care is also beneficial for individuals who suffer from chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and various types of arthritis.
Cold laser therapy uses a beam of light to penetrate the skin and elicit a healing response within the body. By targeting soft tissues around an injury, the light stimulates the flow of blood to the area bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients giving the body what it needs to heal. Cold laser therapy has been proven effective at relieving pain, increasing circulation, reducing inflammation, releasing tight muscles and quickening bone repair.
With electric stimulation, electrical impulses are used to trigger a healing response within the body. Small bursts of electric current sent through an injured area can stimulate muscle growth, repair existing tissue and improve muscle strength and sensations. Small pads are placed over the area where the electric impulses are to be directed. Beginning gradually, the electrical current is used to contract and relax specific muscle groups in an attempt to bring about a healing response.
Spinal decompression involves releasing pressure on the roots of the nerves located in the spine. Both mechanical and manual forms of traction are used to allow the body's own weight to gently pull the vertebrae apart. This releases pressure that has a tendency to build up as a person stands upright. Decompression can also relieve the pain and discomfort associated arthritic conditions and acute muscular spasms. Over time, decompression can relax tight muscles and relieve the pain and cramping that involves sciatica and other issues that involve the nerves.
VibraFlex technology as been developed by Orthometrix, Inc. and uses a 12 - 27 Hz frequency to stimulate targeted muscles causing them to relax and contract. Anywhere from 12 - 27 impulses per second are sent into the muscles during the one minute session. This encourages blood flow to the area and strengthens tissues by encouraging the growth of new muscle fibers. VibraFlex technology has provided positive results by increasing range of motion, improving flexibility, improving postural reflexes and relieving stress on the cardiovascular system, just to name a few.
