CONDITIONS WE TREAT


THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHER TREATMENT MODALITIES THAT CAN BE USED TO COMPLEMENT YOUR PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENT TO INCREASE EFFECTIVENESS AND HELP YOU HEAL FASTER


SHOCK WAVE THERAPY

Extracorporeal (shockwave) therapy is one of the best adjunctive therapies for chiropractic care. Shockwave therapy includes focused sound waves (acoustic compression therapy) and radial electric impulses (radial shockwave therapy). Both therapies are effective at breaking down adhesions and scar tissue that forms in the joints, tendons, and ligaments.

Research suggests the mechanism of action includes the activation of acute-state healing and angiogenesis. Shockwave therapy has many of the benefits of a mechanical therapy, such as massage or tissue scraping, but without bruising or discomfort from pressure.

Additional research shows this modality offers benefits for tendinopathies of the Achilles tendon, elbow collateral ligaments, and even sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Whether the problem involves longstanding alignment issues or acute soft tissue injury, shockwave therapy can benefit patients in conjunction with chiropractic care.


TENS THERAPY

One of the most familiar adjunctive therapies to chiropractic care includes electric stimulation therapy. Whether interferential or Russian biphasic stimulation, benefits can be seen in the electric-sensitive tissues, such as muscle and nerves.

Electric stimulation therapy reduces nociception by means of pain gating and the reduction of facilitated muscle. Secondary effects are observed in the connective tissue as well. This treatment technology enhances chiropractic care.


ULTRASOUND

Therapeutic ultrasound is used primarily for two different effects: the deep heating treatment and non-thermal uses.

Deep heating effects: Ultrasound is often used to provide deep heating to soft tissue structures in the body. Deep heating tendons, muscles or ligaments increases circulation to those tissues, which is thought to help the healing process. Increasing tissue temperature with ultrasound is also used to help decrease pain.

Deep heating can be used to increase the “stretchiness” of muscles and tendons that may be tight. If you have shoulder pain and have been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder, your physical therapist may use ultrasound to help improve the extensibility of the tissues around your shoulder prior to performing range of motion exercises. This may help improve the ability of your shoulder to stretch.

Non-thermal effects (cavitation): Ultrasound introduces energy into the body. This energy causes microscopic gas bubbles around your tissues to expand and contract rapidly, a process called cavitation. It is theorized that the expansion and contraction of these bubbles help speed cellular processes and improves the healing of injured tissue.


COLD LASER/PHOTOTHERAPY

The positive effects of laser therapy are by now well researched.

Regardless of the brand or class of laser, a therapeutic dosage produces a photomodulation (PBM) effect at the treated area. Light energy has been shown to increase cellular metabolism and promote tissue repair at an accelerated rate.

Additional effects of PBM include reduction of nociception and spasticity, making laser an effective tool for patients who present with antalgic or post-treatment discomfort. Class 4 lasers also create low-grade heat, which increases blood flow, fostering an environment of healing in the damaged or diseased tissues.
