Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is effective in breaking myofascial pain syndromes associated with soft tissue damage of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Trigger point therapy breaks up muscle knots and adhesions, increases blood flow to the damaged area. Relieves muscle spasm and promotes proper healing.
Light therapy has been proven effective in the treatment of a number of soft-tissue, pain, and inflammatory conditions.
Ultrasound therapy is a deep micromassage that can exert a localized thermal action. Ultrasound therapy decreases swelling, pumps out the fluids, decreases spasms of the muscles, increases local blood supply, produces a localized analgesia which decreases pain
Moist Heat Therapy
Moist heat relaxes tight muscles in addition to producing a general sedation with local analgesia. There is also an increase in blood flow and metabolic rates which enhances local nutrition to tissues which, in turn, speeds the healing process
Cold Therapy helps relieve pain and reduce accompanying muscle spasm. Cold therapy decreases blood flow to areas of acute inflammation and inhibits bleeding after trauma. Cold therapy is also useful in decreasing the swelling of sprains and strains.
The therapeutic goals of galvanic treatment include: an analgesic effect causing reduction of pain, decrease in muscle hypertonicity (muscle spasm), pumping fluids to help reduce edema (swelling) and re-education which can help increase joint range of motion.
Gentle Vibratory or percussive energy is applied to the body to stimulate proprioceptive function, increase blood and lymphatic flow, sedate nervous tension reduce muscle spasm, and break local tissue adhesions.
Cervical & Lumbar Traction
Traction is a form of mechanotherapy that is useful to stretch tissue adhesions and relieve compression of articulating surfaces. It can also be used as an immobilization technique to help reduce muscle spasm.
