Therapies Offered

In addition to Chiropractic care we offer a number of physio-therapies to supplement the adjustment and make the adjustment easier and last longer. We offer the following...

  • Aquathermassage tables- Float on a heated waterbed type matress while underneath warm water jets massage your back and relax your muscles. This is good not only for those with chronic back issues but also for stress reduction.
  • Interferential Muscle Stimulation-A small electrical stimulation is used to loosen muscles and promote quick response to Chiropractic Care as well as reducing pain and promoting healing.
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound-Different than the type used on Pregnant Women a therapeutic Ultrasound uses sound waves to decrease swelling and inflammation and promote tissue healing.
  • Heat-We can apply heat when indicated for the relaxation of the muscle and tissue associated with some cases.
  • Intersegmental traction-The patient rests on a table while the mechanism slowly and gently rolls under the patient massaging the back and stretching the tissues.
