Pain Management Treatments We Offer
We’ve brought together numerous advanced technologies and techniques to help our clients manage pain without drugs or surgery. Our outpatient pain management services are gentle, non-invasive, and require no downtime whatsoever. Depending on your unique situation, we may recommend one or multiple modalities.
Before beginning any new treatment, be sure to consult with a healthcare professional to determine if it’s appropriate for your individual needs
Chiropractic adjustments involve the manipulation of joints in the body, particularly the spine, to improve alignment and function. We use a combination of manual and table spinal adjustments along with spinal decompression techniques to correct misalignments in the spine and treat pain caused by them.
During the adjustment, you may hear popping or cracking sounds as the joints are realigned. The treatment is generally painless, although some people may experience mild discomfort or soreness afterward.
These treatments help relieve pain and stiffness in the back, neck, and other areas of the body. Good candidates are individuals with back or neck pain, headaches, or joint pain.
Radial Pressure Wave Therapy
Radial pressure wave therapy involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to stimulate healing in damaged tissues. It treats pain by promoting circulation and tissue regeneration, thus reducing pain and inflammation in the affected area.
This therapy involves the use of a handheld device that delivers high-frequency sound waves to the affected area. During the treatment, you may feel a pulsing or tapping sensation in the area being treated, but the experience is quite comfortable.
Good candidates are individuals with chronic pain conditions such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, or achilles tendonitis.
Class IV Medical Laser Therapy
Class IV medical laser therapy involves the use of high-intensity light to stimulate healing in damaged tissues By promoting circulation and tissue regeneration, laser therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area.
During treatment, a handheld device delivers infrared or near-infrared light to the affected area, creating a warm or tingling sensation.
Good candidates are individuals with chronic pain, such as arthritis, back pain, or sports injuries.
TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) therapy involves the use of low-voltage electrical currents to stimulate the nerves and reduce pain signals to the brain. By blocking pain signals and promoting the release of endorphins, TENS therapy can help reduce pain and improve function in the affected area.
During treatment, a small, battery-operated device delivers low-voltage electrical currents to the affected area, creating a tingling or buzzing sensation.
Individuals with chronic pain, such as back pain, arthritis, or fibromyalgia, may benefit from TENS therapy.
Ultrasound therapy involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to promote healing in damaged tissues. It treats pain by increasing circulation and promoting tissue regeneration, thus reducing pain and inflammation.
During treatment, a handheld device delivers high-frequency sound waves to the affected area, typically causing a warm or tingling sensation.
Individuals with soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, or tendonitis, may benefit from ultrasound therapy.
Whole Body Vibration Therapy
Whole body vibration therapy involves the use of a vibrating platform to stimulate the muscles and improve circulation, thus reducing pain and improving physical function in the affected area.
During the treatment, you’ll stand, sit, or lie on a vibrating platform. You’ll feel a buzzing or vibrating sensation throughout your body; the treatment is considered comfortable, but you may experience some muscle soreness afterward.
Good candidates for vibration therapy are experiencing chronic pain, such as back pain, arthritis, or fibromyalgia.
