We can address the functional deficits of your spine and joints via chiropractic care and physical therapies. Effective treatments such as cold laser and spinal decompression create lasting results without medications.
WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY?
Cold Laser Therapy is a treatment whereby a cold laser is utilized to treat chronic and acute pain. Cold laser therapy is used for persons suffering from back and neck pain, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain associated with arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, neuropathy, achilles tendon pain, migraine headaches, sprains and strains, carpal tunnel and other associated pains.
Cold laser therapy also treats conditions such as TMJ, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and other inflammatory and scarring conditions.
Cold laser therapy is non-thermal and noninvasive. A combination of cold laser and electric stimulation, cold laser therapy is one of the most effective healing therapies in the medical community today. Completed in ten to twelve sessions, cold laser therapy is not only significant in reducing treatment times, it is cost effective as well.
The Healing Nature of Light: First developed over 30 years ago, phototherapy uses a specific type of light to penetrate the skin’s surface and underlying tissues to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes. The result is faster healing and reduced pain, swelling and inflammation.
When cells are exposed to photon energy, cellular charges are induced to change the cell homeostasis. This entails a cascade of reactions influencing a number of components of the respiratory chain. (i.e. cytochromes and cytochrome oxidase) which are the primary photo acceptors or chromophores, resulting in absorption of therapeutic wavelengths. This causes short term activation of the respiratory chain, leading to changes in redox status and in turn the activation of enhanced synthesis of ATP. The photons also affect hydrogen ion levels in the cell, in combination with increased ATP, affects the cell permeability and flow of sodium, potassium, and calcium. These changes are necessary to control the proliferative activity of the cell.
Some of the unique healing effects of Phototherapy include:
Increased cell metabolism
Improved localized blood circulation
Development of collagen and muscle tissue
Relief from acute and chronic pain
Reduced localized inflammation and edema
Stimulation for wound healing and tissue repair
Stimulation of the immune system
Stimulation of nerve function
Research demonstrates that phototherapy can be used to effectively treat many conditions.
Simulating the body’s natural repair processes using the healing nature of light has been proven particularly effective for certain conditions including:
DTS Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical answer for disc related syndromes of your lumbar or cervical spine. DTS Decompression Therapy treatments utilize sophisticated, FDA certified equipment that gently stretches the spine, taking pressure off the discs and joints, enhancing the natural healing process.
The gentle distractive force of DTS Decompression Therapy creates decompression, (unloading due to distraction and positioning), to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange in the injured area.
BASED ON COMFORT & SAFETY
Unlike traditional treatments, DTS Decompression Therapy is actually based on your comfort and safety! The force gently graduates over several minutes to a peak that distracts the vertebra and gently stretches the soft tissue. You’ll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation during DTS Therapy. Sessions are typically less than 20 minutes and many individuals’ benefit greatly with as few as 15-20 treatments.
