Chiropractic Therapies

Muscle Stim (Interferential Electro-Therapy)

This is a therapeutic treatment to aid in the relief of pain and promotion of soft tissue healing. Tiny amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissue in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain. This is used to treat ligament sprains, muscle strains, and spasms.

Therapeutic Ultra Sound

This modality uses high frequency sound waves to create heat deep under the skin. Sound vibration, as fast as a million times per second, penetrate the tissues deep in the body eliciting increased blood flow in the treated area. These vibrations can also help break down and disperse unhealthy calcium and other hard accumulations. Ultrasound can be very therapeutic in the treatment of acute flair up such as disc herniations and controlling inflammation. The office has two types which we refer to as P1 and P2. P1 uses pulsed sound waves as opposed to P2, which uses continuous sound waves plus required a user to continually move the sound head around as to not heat up an area too much. Both are used to treat the same conditions. However, P2 allows us to treat a larger area or possible an area which has a non-flat surface such as an elbow or knee.


This therapeutic treatment can take many forms ranging from simple spinalators aka roller table to larger devices that can pull specifically on the neck or low back with a force of up to 130 pounds. Many people who have spinal stenosis, myelopathy/radiculopathy (e.g. disc bulge), and symptoms associated with long hours sitting or bending forward benefit from this treatment. Spinal decompression places traction on the spine and lengthens it and a slow rate. This produces a negative pressure, which in turn causes the spine to pull in nutrients that can enable structures like a disc to heal. Due to the avascular (not getting a lot of blood flow) nature of spine, oral anti-inflammatories are often unsuccessful in reaching areas such as an injured disc without assistance. This therapy can be a pivotal tool in the treatment of non-surgical cases and chronic pain.

Therapeutic Exercise & Stretching

This therapy is the scientific use of bodily movement to restore normal function and range of motion in diseased or injured tissues or to maintain a state of well-being. The goal is to affect the body locally and systemically and bring about changes in the nervous, circulatory, and endocrine systems as well as the musculoskeletal system. A common technique used by the office is called McKenzie exercises, which is for the treatment low back pain and sciatica. Other techniques such as Trigger Point Therapy, Graston, and Rapid Release are used in conjunction with stretching to get more motion out of a joint, tissue, and body region.

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle sometimes referred to as a “muscle knot” that causes localized pain and often to other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Individual TrPs often produce a surprising amount discomfort as well as side effects. If a TrP is pressing on a nerve, you may feel tingling or numbness that travels along that nerve. A common example of this is sciatica, but can also take the form of a headache.

Cold Laser

Cold laser therapy is a relatively new technology compared to many alternative therapies like acupuncture (which has been used since 8000-3500 B.C.), chiropractic (since 1895) and physical therapy. It can provide treatment to a broad area of tissue and bone with IR or Red light photons to reduce pain and stimulate healing. CLT offers a non-intrusive option to acupuncture and surgery and can be used as a non-addicting treatment that eliminates the complications of long-term drug treatment programs. Cold lasers are FDA cleared and widely used for treatment of conditions such as acute or chronic pain, arthritis, back pain and more. The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from red and infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. It is the consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP. This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state.
