MASSAGE Therapy

Massage relieves tension, relaxes your muscles, and helps eliminate stress and anxiety. It’s also an effective medical therapy that rehabilitates injuries, heals musculoskeletal conditions, and promotes healing. The body’s soft tissue areas include the muscles, tendons, connective tissue, etc. If someone is tense and in need of a release, or they have been injured and have extensive muscle and/or nerve tissue damage that plagues their body, massage therapy might be worth exploring.

Some massage techniques use gentle pressure and kneading, while others employ pressure directed at specific trigger points. The most common techniques are: Deep Tissue (Therapeutic), Swedish (Relaxation) and Cupping.

Due to its increased popularity and demand, some insurance companies provide coverage for massage treatments. Please ask prior to scheduling if you believe you may have these benefits.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that has gained popularity for its effectiveness in pain management and relief. It involves gently stretching the spine to relieve pressure on the discs and nerves, which can alleviate pain and promote healing. Unlike invasive surgeries, spinal decompression is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment option, making it a preferred choice for many individuals suffering from chronic back pain..

LASER THERAPY (hot)

Class IV laser therapy utilizes high-powered lasers to deliver concentrated light energy deep into the tissue. This focused laser light penetrates the skin and targets the underlying issue causing pain. The photons emitted by the laser are absorbed by the cells in the tissue, leading to a cascade of beneficial effects.

When the laser energy is absorbed, it stimulates cellular repair and regeneration, promoting the body’s natural healing process. This results in reduced pain, improved range of motion, and faster recovery. Additionally, the laser light helps to increase blood circulation in the treated area, supplying oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, further aiding in the healing process.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy utilizes high-intensity sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. It has been proven to be particularly effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and tennis elbow. By delivering energy to the affected area, shockwave therapy promotes tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain.

The treatment works by delivering acoustic waves to the affected area, creating microtrauma within the tissues. This microtrauma triggers an inflammatory response, which stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The increased blood flow to the area helps in the regeneration of damaged tissues and the formation of new blood vessels. Over time, this leads to the reduction of pain and improved functionality.

DRYNEEDLING

Dry needling is a therapeutic procedure that involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points in the body, known as trigger points, to alleviate muscle pain and promote healing. Unlike traditional acupuncture, which focuses on restoring the flow of energy (Qi) along meridians, dry needling targets areas of muscle tension and dysfunction.

The needles used in dry needling are typically solid and do not contain any medication or injectables. The goal is to stimulate the trigger points, which may be causing pain or limiting range of motion, to release tension and promote the body’s natural healing response. By inserting the needles directly into the affected muscles, dry needling can effectively address musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

Dry needling is often used in conjunction with other therapies, such as chiropractic, physical therapy and exercise, to optimize pain management and improve overall physical function. The technique is safe and minimally invasive, making it an attractive option for individuals seeking alternative treatments for their pain.
