Cold Laser (Low Level Laser)

Cold laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment that is used for a variety of chronic and acute musculoskeletal health conditions. Cold laser uses low levels of light photons to stimulate healing and blood flow in the target area. Damaged cells absorb the light, which leads to cell regeneration and stimulation. Cold laser is commonly used to decrease pain and inflammation in injured tissues.

Conditions Treated:

  • Ligamentous strains
  • Muscle sprains
  • TMJ pain
  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Joint pain

Normatec

NormaTec is a compression therapy that is used to enhance recovery by improving movement lymphatic drainage, pump out stagnant fluids, remove toxins from your muscles, flush out lactic acids, increase circulation of oxygen-rich blood, and decrease inflammation. Normatec is often used for athletes or patients who are on their feet most of the day.

Conditions Treated:

  • Muscle soreness
  • Poor circulation
  • Diabetes
  • Inflammation

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Therapeutic ultrasound utilizes sounds waves and has a thermal effect that can be applied to both chronic and acute tissue injuries. Therapeutic ultrasound has a transducer head, which allows treatment to applied to specific areas of the body including muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and joints. Benefits include tissue healing, increased blood flow, and decreased pain.

Electric Muscle Stimulation

Electrical stimulation delivers electrical currents to areas of the body with the use of sticky pads known as electrodes. These electrodes are specific to each condition by varying treatment intensity, frequency, and duration. E-stim stimulates muscles to contract and relax, which helps to treat neuromuscular tissue injuries. Benefits include decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and increased muscle endurance.

Hypervolt Therapy

Hypervolt is a handheld percussion massage gun that utilizes a variety of attachments to treat specific musculoskeletal conditions with varying pressures. Hypervolt massage guns target both superficial and deep muscles fibers. Benefits include decreased muscle tension, increased blood flow to muscles, and increased range of motion.

IASTM (Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization)

IASTM aka Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, is a form of soft tissue treatment that utilizes a metallic tool to focus on myofascial injuries. These tools come in a variety of shapes and sizes to help treat specific body parts and areas. Benefits include treating myofascial adhesion, breaking up scar tissue, increasing range of motion, decreasing pain, and stimulating healing.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a therapeutic technique that utilizes a vacuum force created beneath a small glass or plastic vessel applied onto the skin’s surface. Cupping focuses on blood and autologous healing substances in a specific area, stimulating metabolic activity, improving immune function, and stabilizing blood biochemistry. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
