Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression treats a variety of conditions like back pain, deteriorated spinal joints and sciatica, and is most noted for its treatment of disc herniations and protrusions.

This low-force technique uses a table with a movable low back section which enables the doctor to move the joints of the spine through all of their physiologic ranges of motion, including flexion, extension, lateral flexion, and circumduction. Depending on the reason you are seeking treatment, you can expect to see an improvement in as little as one to six sessions.

One of our doctors will have you lay on a spinal decompression table and place a large band around your waste connecting you to the table. With very little force, the table will create negative pressure and stretch the spine allowing the disc fluid to move back into place. This will expedite healing and alleviate pain.

A standard consultation lasts between 45 minutes to an hour.

On your first visit, we will request that you complete our patient forms. Our doctor will ask questions pertaining to your health history, concerns, and any pain or discomfort you have been experiencing. This will be followed by a physical exam. Depending on the severity, our doctor might request further examinations or X-rays.

You do not have to prepare for spinal decompression. You are more than welcome to fill out our patient forms in advance.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is a unique therapy that helps reduce pain caused by injury, strain, inflammation, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel, and scar tissue.

Ultrasound therapy sends low-frequency sound waves deep into your joints and muscles to heal the pain at the source. These sound waves warm the tissue and increase blood-flow to encourage healing. This therapy is very safe and approved by the FDA as long as it is performed by a licensed specialist.

One of our trained specialists will apply gel to a small area on your skin to help reduce friction and assist in the transmission of sound waves. They will then move the ultrasound probe around the muscle or joint for five to ten minutes. You may feel heat, pulsing, or nothing but the topical gel during treatment.

A standard consultation lasts 30 minutes.

On your first visit, we will request that you complete our patient forms. Our specialist will ask questions pertaining to your health history, concerns, and any pain or discomfort you have been experiencing. This will be followed by a physical exam. Depending on the severity, our doctor might request further examinations or X-rays.

Ultrasound therapy can make muscle tissue and joints feel sore, so we recommend staying hydrated before and after your appointment. If you are seeking treatment for muscle pain, we recommend stretching regularly after your appointment.

Electronic Muscle Stimulation

Our electronic muscle stimulation therapy sends healing currents throughout the injured area to treat muscle spasms, back pain, neck pain, post-surgery pain, muscle weakness, tendonitis, and acute/chronic pain problems.

By placing electrode patches on your skin’s surface, our doctors can send healing electrical currents throughout the injured areas of your musculature. By controlling the location of the patches and the setting of the current, we can achieve a variety of healing goals. Electronic muscle stimulation is very safe and widely used.

One of our trained specialists will apply several soft electrode patches to a small area on your skin. These electrodes will be connected to an electronic muscle stimulation machine, or e-stim machine, via a thin wire. You may feel tingling and your muscles tightening or relaxing during treatment. Depending on the reason you are seeking treatment, we may ask you to contract your muscle while the e-stim machine sends electrical currents to that muscle.

A standard consultation lasts between 30 minutes to an hour.

On your first visit, we will request that you complete our patient forms. Our specialist will ask questions pertaining to your health history, concerns, and any pain or discomfort you have been experiencing. This will be followed by a physical exam. Depending on the severity, our doctor might request further examinations or X-rays.

You do not need to prepare for an electronic muscle stimulation appointment. If you are seeking treatment for muscle pain, we recommend stretching regularly and staying hydrated after your appointment.
