Here are the stages of recovery that you can plan on:


Stage One

We begin our care with a thorough examination that leads to a general assessment that guides our treatment. Our treatment starts with therapeutic modalities that reduce inflammation in the injured areas as well as stimulate the muscles to increase circulation. At this stage, we also use passive stretching to increase the range of motion in the injured areas.

Stage Two

We advance care using stimulatory modalities and an exercise program designed for the restoration of function in the injured areas.

Stage Three

We increase the rehabilitation at this stage, designing treatments for a broader musculoskeletal rehabilitation using conventional strengthening and stretching exercises as well as isotronic resistance equipment.


Treatment Modalities:

  • Electric Muscle Stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Passive and Resistive Stretching
  • Manipulative Therapy
  • Cervical Mechanical Traction
  • Lumbar Mechanical Traction

    Treatment Options

    Chiropractic Care

    Spinal manipulative therapy a.k.a. adjustments are used to put in motion back into the spine or extremity Cervical Mechanical


    Traction, Spinal Decompression

    Used for bulging cervical discs to create a degree of soft tissue tension and/or to allow for separation between joint surfaces.


    Lumbar Mechanical Traction, Spinal Decompression

    Treats herniated, bulging, and degenerative discs without surgery. State of the art technology gradually relieves neurocompression often associated with lower back pain. This process has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing herniation and strengthening outer ligaments. It helps move herniated areas back into place, reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.


    Electric Muscle Stimulation (EMS)

    Increases blood flow which helps to decrease inflammation and bring nutrients necessary for healing injuries. Stimulates local nerve cells which can have a pain reducing/anesthetic effect.


    Hot Packs

    Application of superficial heat that is most effective in subacute or chronic conditions. Cold Packs: Application of cold for withdrawal of thermal energy used in acute and severe spasticity.


    Ultrasound

    Sound waves pass through the skin (a deep penetrating modality) to increase local blood flow, reduces swelling and acute/chronic inflammation. Also used for breaking fibrotic adhesions and reducing muscle spasms.

    Passive and Resistive Stretching

    Used to increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility, and mobility.


    Intersegmental Traction, Spinal Decompression

    Induces passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.


    Manual Therapy

    Neuromuscular, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Massage Therapy used to reduce muscle spasms, break adhesions and release trigger points in the muscle tissues.


    Digital X-Ray

    Digital x-ray imaging use sensors instead of the traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.


    Rehabilitative/Muscle Strengthening Equipment

    One-on-one patient contact by the provider using dynamic activities with lifting stations to improve functional performance. *Including an 8-Way Cervical Rehabilitation Machine.
