Physiotherapeutic Modalities: Electrical therapy is utilized to reduce swelling, pain, and to accelerate healing. Ultrasound therapy consists of high frequency sound waves that penetrate deep and help to break up adhesions, reduce inflammation, pain, and accelerate healing. Hot packs increase circulation and soft tissue flexibility to an area preparing it for stretching or joint manipulation. Cold packs constrict blood vessels reducing inflammation, and pain at an acutely injured area.
Nutritional Assessment & Supplements: We offer options of basic nutritional assessment, or a comprehensive intake / analysis to determine your nutritional status and needs. When required advanced testing is ordered and performed through off-site laboratories. Frequently our patients ask us for specific nutritional recommendations recognizing that not all companies offer effective products. The best nutritional companies make their products available only through physicians. The following is a list of reputable companies with the best combination of quality and price we have found:
Custom Made Orthotics: Our feet were designed to walk on soft uneven ground like grass. Modern society requires us to stand and walk on rigid straight surfaces. Coupled with poorly designed or uncomfortable shoes most people's feet develop some form of dysfunction. The more you walk and stand with poor support the worse it gets. Unfortunately the problem does not end at the feet since the foundation of the body can transfer stress to the knees, hips, back and so forth all the way up to the neck. The stresses and eventual dysfunction usually develop unevenly. This means symmetrical – off the shelf inserts – will not offer the proper correction. Our custom made orthotics are shaped to your specific dysfunction, (calculated from a digital scan of your feet and other physician measurements), offering precise support. Use of orthotics has been proven to even out pelvic unleveling, help maintain chiropractic spinal correction, reduce postural fatigue, improve balance, and athletic performance.
