The Comprehensive Spine Center consiss of a truly integrated therapy team with professionals looking to assist in your rehabilitaion following an injury or illness. Our team consists of medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, athletic trainers, counselors, and many others to ensure optimal recovery.
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession focusing 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 order to support the natural ability to be healthy.
In acupuncture, very fine needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate specific points on the body. This therapy is used for the prevention and treatment of diseases, relief of pain, and as an anesthetic for surgery.
Massage therapy is the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Massage therapists work to improve the circulation of blood through the body and to speed the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles. Their skilled kneading increases the flexibility of muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
Therapeutic exercises are a variety of physical activities that focus on restoring and maintaining strength, stability, flexibility and balance. As the muscles become healthier and stronger, patients are instructed to complete home stretching and exercise programs. Having an adequate exercise program is absolutely essential in regaining maximal improvement.
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.
Neuromuscular exercises are specific exercises in which one's nerves and muscles work together. The exercises specifically benefit movement patterns that have become inefficient and painful after injuries.
Heat/Ice therapy is typically used to treat both acute and chronic injuries. Heat helps to relax muscles and improve circulation by bringing essential nutrients to affected areas. Ice helps reduce inflammation and pain.
Hydrotherapy is a form of therapy that applies the use of water for its curative and preventive effects. The hydro massage bed uses the 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. This therapy helps to decrease inflammation, swelling, stiffness, muscle spams, and improve one's range of motion.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been shown to be beneficial for soft tissue inflammation and swelling following musculo-skeletal injuries and in post-surgical conditions. Most patients report a comforting warm sensation with immediate pain relief and an improved range of motion.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation - TMS
TMS therapy uses a magnet to activate the brain centers that are under active and not functioning properly.
An electromagnetic coil is held against the forehead near an area of the brain that is thought to be involved in mood regulation (pre-frontal cortex). Then, short electromagnetic pulses are administered through the coil. The magnetic pulse easily passes through the skull to the prefrontal cortex, and causes small electrical currents that stimulate nerve cells and depolarize neurons in the targeted brain region.
A typical TMS session lasts 20 to 45 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Generally, the person will feel a slight tapping on the side of the forehead as the pulses are administered. The magnetic field is about the same strength as that of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
