Low Level Laser
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a form of alernative medicine that applies low-level (low-power) lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the surface or orifices of the body. Where as "high-power" lasers are used in laser medicine to cut or destroy tissue, low-power lasers are claimed to relieve pain or to stimulate and enhance cell function.
A Chiropractic adjustment is the use of specific fors ine a precise direction that helps normalize spinal function. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones to a more normal positionor motion, restoring body's natural healing. The most important thing a chiro can do.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS is used for rehabilitation purposes. It is used for the prevention of disuse muscle atrophy which can occur for example after musculoskeletal injuries, such as damage to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This is distinct from transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), in which an electric current is used for pain therapy.
Decompression (traction table)
Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals for many years. Both traction and decompression therapy are applied w/the goals of relieving pain and promoting and optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
Therapeutic exercise refers to a range of physical activities that helps restore and build physical strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, and stability. The goal of therapeutic exercise is returning and injured person to a pain-free, fully functioning state.
Ultrasound therapy is used to minimize muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. Ultrasound therapy may be used alone or in conjunction w/stretching, therapeutic massage, heat, or gentle chiropractic manipulation.
Intersegmental Traction (IST)
Intersegmental traction tables gently help reestablish the normal ranges of the body's spine. Intersetmental traction tables also help facilitate muscle relaxation and reduce muscle spasms.
