Additional Therapies

Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a powerful tool for treating pain and inflammation.  Studies show effective pain relief for many musculoskeletal conditions including acute sports injuries, joint injuries, tendinitis, sprains, arthritis, back pain, lumbar pain, plantar fasciitis and more [1].  We employ a super pulsed laser that can penetrate up to 5 inches of tissue to treat a wide variety of pain issues.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasound has been shown to speed the healing process and increase blood flow in the treated area, leading to a reduction in pain and swelling [2]. It also gently massages muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the treated area. Ultrasound promotes tissue repair, including the softening of scar tissue.

Functional Nutrition

A car runs only as good as the gas you put in it and your body is no different. We must nourish our body if we expect it to repair and respond to treatment. Whole foods are the best approach; however, synthetic vitamins have a time and place. Each patient is guided toward appropriate supplementation for their specific needs. We recommend Juice Plus as a simple beginning for those who want to improve their intake of fruits and vegetables.

Mechanical Traction

Mechanical Traction is a machine that helps gap open the compressed joints in your spine allowing nutrients to re-hydrate your discs and improve the mobility of your spine.
