Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS): By placing electrodes around the site of pain, an electric current is transmitted through the tissues to reduce pain and muscle spasms by stimulating the tissues and nerves, relaxing muscles, and reducing pain signals.
Therapeutic Ultrasound: An ultrasound transducer is placed on the skin with a coupling media (ultrasound gel) to transmit energy into the tissues. While this therapy can be used for several conditions, the most common uses in this office are to deliver heat deep into the tissues to increase blood flow, promote healing, and reduce pain. Indications for this therapy include tendonitis, bursitis, degenerative disc or joint disease, and muscle spasms.
Ultrasound/E-stim Combo: This therapy delivers the benefits of ultrasound and EMS in a single treatment.
Soft Tissue Rehabilitation: Noninvasive therapies designed to return tight or damaged soft tissues throughout the body to regular motion, including massage therapy, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretching, strength and range-of-motion exercises.
The therapeutic exercise involves movement prescribed to correct impairments, restore muscular and skeletal function and/or maintain a state of well-being. Therapeutic exercise is a type of physical activity used to treat or prevent injuries and improve functional outcomes. The scientific evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of exercise is indisputable, and the benefits of exercise far outweigh the risks in most adults.
- Therapy bikes can help build strength in your legs and lower body including muscles in your core, back, and glutes which assist the body with balance, and spatial awareness as well as reducing the risk of falling in the elderly and injured.
- Vibrawave is a revolutionary form of low-impact exercise that promotes health and fitness with less effort. The vibration does the work, and the body responds by relieving chronic pain, increasing balance which reduces fall risk as well as increasing bone density and improving overall well-being.
