Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an alternative therapy that reduces acute and chronic pain. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and is widely practiced today in the United States. The treatment involves the placement of needles that stimulate points of the body that release natural painkillers called endorphins. These sites connect with pathways or ‘meridians’ that distribute energy and clear obstructions that may result in illness.

Once the meridians have been regulated, the body begins to naturally repair internal functions. Harmony is quickly restored to the blood flow and nutrients that balance the body and its energy sources. Acupuncture is proven safe and treats various types of pain, including: back and neck pain, headaches/migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, dental pain, menstrual cramps and fibromyalgia.

Chiropractic Care

Good health depends on normal functioning of the spine and the associated nerves that impact other parts of the body. Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to treat pain that develops when proper function is disrupted. It is considered to be a conservative form of therapy because it utilizes non-invasive techniques before pharmaceutical drugs or surgery.

Spinal pain is often caused by accidents, falls, or tension that displaces a part of the spinal column. Our specialists pay close attention to the spine during our initial health assessment. We carefully evaluate its structure to uncover any misalignments or irregularities. Depending on the severity and type of spinal pain, we perform adjustments and therapies that improve mobility with manual and computerized modalities.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Deep tissue laser therapy is clinically proven to reduce pain and inflammation. This non-invasive procedure delivers laser energy that penetrates deep tissue structures and hastens the healing process. Once the light is absorbed, damaged cells immediately begin to regenerate and increase circulation throughout the injured parts of the body.

Laser therapy treatments are an effective alternative to surgery or prescription drugs. The procedure is FDA-cleared and targets a broad range of acute and chronic pain conditions, including: back and neck pain, slipped discs, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, headaches, and sports injuries. Most treatments only take 10-15 minutes and provide lasting benefits that maximize healing potential.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is one of the latest advancements in non-surgical pain relief. The procedure utilizes low-level wavelengths of light to eliminate discomfort, reduce muscles spasms and inflammation, and increase mobility and range of movement.

The healing energy is delivered with a handheld device that places a laser over the injured area anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes. The length of exposure depends on the size of the treatment area and the dose of the cold laser unit being delivered. The injured cells then quickly begin to normalize and reduce the amount of time required for the damaged part of the body to heal.

Physical Therapy

Injuries are one of the most common causes of pain that impair your ability to function. Physical therapy is used to restore mobility by strengthening injured areas of the body. We use a hands-on approach to safely return patients to their daily routines. Our physical therapy program is designed to address various forms of pain, including: back, neck or shoulder pain, hip or leg pain, headaches, sprains and strains, muscle spasms and whiplash; and any discomfort caused by sports injuries and automobile or workplace accidents.

The physical rehabilitation services we offer include numerous modalities. We facilitate the highest level of comfort while improving activity levels and range of movement. Our goal is to train the problem area how to properly function again and teach patients how to lessen the chance of injury recurrence. Every procedure is non-invasive and incorporates healthy lifestyle modifications, such as nutritional counseling and exercise programs.
