Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of deep heat therapy created by high frequency sound waves. When applied to soft tissues and joints, the sound waves are a form of micro-massage that help reduce swelling and increase blood flow. We will often use this to treat ligaments, tendons and joint capsules. Therapeutic ultrasound treats internal ailments with a sound frequency far beyond the maximum that can be detected by the human ear. This noninvasive and painless treatment is F.D.A. approved and has been used throughout the world for over 50 years.

Patient Benefits

  • Reduces painful symptoms
  • Decreases muscle spasms
  • Increases circulation
  • Reduces swelling
  • Assists in soft tissue repair

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy uses bursts of low-level electromagnetic radiation to heal damaged tissues and bone, to relieve injury-related pain, and even to stimulate organs.

The idea is that pulses at low frequencies will pass through the skin and penetrate deep into muscle, bones, tendons, and even organs to activate the cell’s energy and encourage its natural repair mechanisms. PEMF is catching on as a non-invasive way to approach injuries, chronic pain, and even chronic conditions like depression and diabetes.

 

By transferring energy, PEMF has been used to improve functions like:

  • Rate of injury healing
  • Immune function
  • Sleep
  • Depression
  • Physical energy
  • Bone healing and density
  • Circulation

Healing is a cellular processes and infrared light therapy stimulates everything from the cell membrane and cytoplasm, to the nucleus and the DNA. Light therapy increases cellular metabolism by increasing ATP (which produces more energy), decreasing inflammation, and increasing endorphins. This process is called cellular amplification. A demonstration of this process earned the Nobel Peace Prize in medicine in 1994.

 

Light energy has been used for healing since early medical history, but more recently, with new emerging research, there has been an explosion of utilization of energy medicine modalities including micro-current stimulators, bone growth stimulators, hot lasers and cold lasers. Far infrared and cold lasers treat at a very special wavelength, 600-1000 nanometers. It has proven extremely effective in healing sprains and strains, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint pain, swelling, muscle spasms, bruises (hematomas) and skin conditions such as acne.

Hydromassage therapy utilizes whirlpool jets to massage the neck & back for a relaxing-dry hydrotherapy treatment. Heated water is pumped, under pressure, through a series of three rotational hydro-jets inside a water-filled mattress. The water movement created by the jets provides the massage and is similar to the action of a whirlpool or spa. Hydromassage stimulates soft tissues, increases blood and lymph circulation while breaking up scar tissue between muscle fibers. Hydromassage generally produces an overall relaxed feeling. Patients are soothed by the heat of the water and experience a reduction in pain to affected areas.

Patient Benefits

  • Reduces muscle spasms
  • Relieves pain
  • Promotes the healing process
  • Increases metabolism
  • Improves circulation
  • Increases joint mobility and range of motion

Our rehabilitative exercise therapy combines strength and flexibility training, using exercises that tone and condition the entire body. Particular attention is paid to building and developing the area of the body called the “powerhouse,” the core region of the body that includes the abdomen, pelvis, lower back and buttocks.

  • Reduces stress
  • Provides effective rehabilitation for injuries
  • Flattens abdominals and strengthens back muscles
  • Provides a gentle, low-impact, whole body workout
  • Increases energy, invigorates the body
  • Strengthens the mind-body connection
  • Alleviates back pain
  • Improves body posture and movement

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury.
