Physiotherapy is used within our office as a pre- or post-treatment adjunct. We find these therapies will have a synergistic effect when used in conjunction with our other treatments. These modalities are not used in a cookie-cutter fashion; they will be applied in a very specific manner to expedite your healing process.
Interferential stimulation, IFC, helps tight muscles to relax by producing electrical currents that pass through the affected area. IFC can help remove damaged tissue, provide pain relief.
Moist heat and ice
Heat therapy relaxes muscles, increases circulation and can provide relief to chronic pain. Ice therapy reduces swelling and can help control pain after an injury.
Muscle stimulation therapy
Muscle stimulation therapy transmits light electrical pulses to specific areas of the body through electrodes placed on the skin. This stimulation can provide pain relief, reduce inflammation and muscle spasm or cause muscles to contract to reduce muscle atrophy.
Pressure point therapy
Pressure point therapy increases blood flow to specific pressure points, helping to relax muscles, decrease pain and stiffness, increase range of motion and promote healing.
Solaris Infrared Therapy
We use Solaris Dynatron Infrared Light Therapy. Cleared by the FDA, the light therapy probes provide topical heating for temporary increase in blood circulation, temporary relief of minor muscle and joint aches, pain and stiffness and relaxation ofmuscles, for muscle spasms and minor pain and stiffness.
A transcutaneous electric nervous stimulation (TENS) unit, which is a small, battery-powered muscle stimulation machine, helps control pain by using variable intensities of electric current.
Ultrasound, a form of deep heat therapy created by sound waves, can help reduce swelling, increase blood flow and decrease pain, stiffness and spasms when the sound waves, a form of micro-massage, are applied to soft tissues and joints.
