This involves evaluating and treating a range of musculoskeletal disorders and disabilities using physical means. In conjunction with corrective adjustments, our doctors may customize a program using physical therapy modalities designed for your specific condition. These exercises will strengthen and stabilize weak muscles and enable them to support the spine properly by improving muscle tone and balance.
Muscle stimulation therapy helps to ease pain and speed blood flow to injured muscles. Small electrodes are placed on the skin and the patient relaxes while the machine sends a small, pain-free current to the muscles for a short time, 15 to 20 minutes.
During ultrasound therapy, a wand carrying very high frequency sound waves is applied over the skin for treatment. This therapy speeds up of the healing process by increasing blood flow in the treated area, decreases pain by reducing inflammation and edema, and softens scar tissue in muscles, tendons and / or ligaments.
