Our team consists of medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, athletic trainers, counselors, and many others to ensure optimal recovery.
Chiropractic therapy focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The primary role of a chiropractor is to restore and maintain the health of the spine and the nervous system.
In acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate specific points on the body. Acupuncture is used for the relief of pain, spasms and restore function.
Massage therapy is the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Massage therapists improve the circulation of blood through the affected area. Massage also increases the flexibility of muscles, ligaments, and soft tissues.
Traction Therapy involves the gentle stretching of soft tissues and spinal joints. It is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine. When performed correctly, traction therapy might help to decompress the bulging and herniated disks.
Therapeutic exercises consist of a variety of physical activities that focus on restoring and maintaining strength, stability, flexibility, and balance. One on one exercise program with a skilled therapist is essential in regaining maximal strength, range of motion and function.
Neuromuscular exercises are specific exercises to make nerves and muscles work together. The exercises specifically improve movement patterns that are inefficient after painful injuries, like auto accidents, work injuries, falls, sprains and fractures.
Heat/Ice therapy is typically used to treat both acute and chronic injuries. The heat helps to relax muscles and improve blood circulation by bringing essential nutrients to affected areas. Ice helps reduce inflammation and pain.
Hydrotherapy is a form of therapy that includes the use of warm water for its curative and preventive effects. The hydromassage bed uses a combination of water, heat, and massage to heal injured tissues, muscles, and joints.
Ultrasound therapy is a well-established treatment modality to treat painful soft tissue conditions and promote tissue healing. Ultrasound helps to decrease inflammation, swelling, stiffness, spasms, and improve joint range of motion.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been shown to be beneficial for soft tissue healing by decreasing inflammation and swelling Most patients report a comforting warm sensation with immediate pain relief and an improved range of motion following laser therapy.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation - TMS
TMS therapy uses a magnet to activate the brain centers that are under active and not functioning properly.
A helmet with an electromagnetic coil is held against the brain area that is thought to be involved in mood regulation (pre-frontal cortex). Short electromagnetic pulses are administered through the coil to stimulate nerve cells in the targeted brain region.
A typical TMS session lasts 20 to 30 minutes and is offered in an outpatient setting.
