Various Treatment Approaches

Manual Therapy
     An approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on  
     techniques, including but not limited to
     manipulation/mobilization, used by the physical
     therapist to diagnose and treat soft tissues and
     joint structures for the purpose of decreasing
     pain and increasing range of motion.

Customized exercise programs

     balance training
     fall prevention
     stretching

Education

    how to maintain proper balance as we age

Electro stimulation
    Sends electrical signals to underlying nerves to
    relieve a wide range of chronic and acute pain.

Laser therapy
     The light energy is absorbed and converted to
     biochemical energy, which stimulates the cells.
     Low-level laser therapy is believed to speed
     healing and reduce pain and inflammation.
     There are no known side effects to low-level
     laser therapy.

 Spinal decompression therapy
     The use of a mechanical traction device applied
     through an on-board computer that controls the
     force and angle of disc distraction.

Ultrasound therapy
     Uses high-energy sound waves (those above the
     range we hear) to help ease painful joints and
     muscles.
