Spinal Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a revolutionary new technology used primarily to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back. This treatment option is very safe and utilizes FDA cleared equipment to apply distraction forces to spinal structures in a precise and graduated manner. Distraction is offset by cycles of partial relaxation. This technique of spinal decompression therapy, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning, has shown the ability to gently separate the vertebrae from each other, creating a vacuum inside the discs that we are targeting. This "vacuum effect" is also known as negative intra-discal pressure.
The negative pressure may induce the retraction of the herniated or bulging disc into the inside of the disc, and off the nerve root, thecal sac, or both. It happens only microscopically each time, but cumulatively, over four to six weeks, the results are quite dramatic.The cycles of decompression and partial relaxation, over a series of visits, promote the diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside of the discs to the inside. These nutrients enable the torn and degenerated disc fibers to begin to heal.For the low back, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back or stomach on the decompression table, with a set of nicely padded straps snug around the waist and another set around the lower chest. For the neck, the patient lies comfortably on his/her back with a pair of soft rubber pads behind the neck. Many patients enjoy the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well tolerated.

Impulse Technique
Your chiropractor and thousands of other doctors around the world now use the Impulse Adjusting Instrument® in the care of their patients. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. The Impulse Adjusting Instrument® is controlled by micro-computer circuitry housed within the device that produces a controlled force that chiropractors can use to treat different areas of the body..There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments , but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas

Flex
Cox Flexion/Distraction
Cox Technique is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal adjustment performed with the patient lying on specialized table. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.


Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy 
Along with adjusting the joint and performing ART on your problematic area, the doctor will perform and prescribe certain activities. They will aid in your healing time and get certain body parts strong again. We specializes in maximizing human movement, function and potential.  We work with someone after injury, accident or surgery, or may work to prevent injury for instance with sporting clubs or in the workplace.

 

Laser Therapy
It is a high-power, therapeutic laser with the ability to stimulate accelerated healing energy within a continuum of treatment depths from superficial to extremely deep. This enables the accelerated treatment of superficial wounds, sprains/strains, and deep intra-articular tissues (inside of joints) unreachable by any other physical therapy modality or Class III-B low-level laser.

 

Ultrasound Therapy
Therapeutic ultrasound frequency used is 0.7 to 3.3 MHz. Maximum energy absorption in soft tissue is 2 to 5 cm. Intensity decreases as the waves penetrate deeper. They are absorbed primarily by connective tissueligaments,tendons, and fascia.
  • Ultrasound is thought to accelerate the normal resolution time of the inflammatory process by attracting more mast cells to the site of injury. This may cause an increase in blood flow which can be beneficial in the sub-acute phase of tissue injury. As blood flow may be increased it is not advised to use ultrasound immediately after injury.
  • Ultrasound may also stimulate the production of more collagen- the main protein component in soft tissue such as tendons and ligaments. Hence ultrasound may accelerate the the proliferative phase of tissue healing.
  • Ultrasound is thought to improve the extensibility of mature collagen and so can have a positive effect to on fibrous scar tissue which may form after an injury.
