Therapies

Non Surgical Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine whether it is the lumbar spine (low back) or cervical spine (neck). By applying mechanical traction for a determined amount of minutes usually 30-45, will help to take pressure off the nerves and discs reducing significantly the pain and associated symptoms like tingling, weakness or numbness.

The average patient feels a major pain relief in about two weeks. It may require 20 to 32 treatments to fully complete the care. It will depend on patient’s condition, age, lifestyle and compliance with the care plan.

Laser Terapy

Laser Therapy works through a process called photobiomodulation. When cells in your body absorb the light emitted by the laser, it creates a chain reaction within the cell that increases cellular energy. This can reduce inflammation,  increase healing time and reduce pain. This therapy can be used in combination with other treatments to help the patient recover faster and promote healing of the tissue in the area applied.  

It can also reduce muscle spasm and improve joint mobility when applied no less than twice a week. For chronic conditions it might be necessary to treat the area three times a week. Treatments can take 10 to 20 minutes.

Good for:

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Muscle Pain/Spasm
  • Tendinopathy
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Post surgery recovery
  • Radiculopathy
  • Epicondylitis

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound in physical therapy is a modality that emits heat to superficial or deep tissue and it creates an effect in the tissue called cavitation.
