Deep Tissue Laser.
Deep Tissue Laser (aka low level laser therapy) is FDA approved to help with many issues dealing with the body. Effective laser therapy administration is a direct function of power of the laser light and dose delivered. Administering the optimal treatment dose to patients produces consistent positive outcomes. The class IV therapy lasers, which we use in our practice, provide a deeper depth of tissue penetration and ultimately provide a dose that results in positive reproducible outcomes. Higher wattage also results in faster treatment times and provides results unachievable with low wattage lasers. These lasers provide a level of versatility unrivaled by other Class I, II, and IIIb lasers due to their ability to treat both superficial and deep tissue conditions.
Spinal Decompression uses a non-surgical mechanical traction table through an on-board computer that controls the force and angle of disc distraction and creates a negative pressure in the disc which reduces the body’s natural propensity to resist external force and/or generate muscle spasms. The force applied to alleviate the pressure is very subtle and often the movement is barely detectable. The results, however, can be dramatic in alleviating pain and pressure. At the same time, the disc is receiving nutrients to help in the healing process. Any acute or chronic arm or leg pain such as shooting, sharp pain and numbness and tingling will often be alleviated with treatment. Bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and Spondylolisthesis (displacement of a vertebra on to the vertebra below it) patients are commonly treated with Spinal Decompression.
Chiropractors are extensively trained and board certified to locate and find misaligned vertebrae. When vertebrae are misaligned, a chiropractor uses methods such as examination, x-ray findings and motion palpation. During motion palpation, the doctor will put a joint in motion and look for restriction during a range of motion. When the subluxation is located, pressure will be applied to the specific vertebrae and a proper line of correction will be used during the manipulation of the joint, to remove restriction. When the spine is properly aligned, the nerve interference and motion of the joints are restored. This will lead to better functioning of the nervous system and motion of the whole body. Chiropractic helps with neck pain, back pain, headaches, chronic tiredness, numbness or tingling in arms and legs, sinuses, athletic injury and many more by aligning the spine to its correct state thus removing any possible nerve interference. Also, spinal manipulation (adjustment) helps the joints function more smoothly and increase range of motion.
