Acupuncture works by improving the body’s functions in order to promote the natural self-healing process. This is done by stimulating specific anatomic sites, commonly referred to as acupuncture points. The most common method used to stimulate these points is the insertion of fine, sterile, needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may also be used to further enhance the effects.
All acupuncture treatments are performed using single use, disposable, filiform needles. The needles arrive pre-wrapped and sterilized, and they are opened just prior to insertion. Because of this safety practice, risk of infection is extremely low. Acupuncture has relatively few side effects.
Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization -- SASTM
S.A.S.T.M. is an effective technique that uses instruments to effectively break down fascial restrictions and scar tissue. The ergonomic design of these instruments provides the clinician with the ability to locate restrictions through sound waves, similar to a stethoscope, and allows the clinician to treat the affected area with the appropriate amount of pressure, due to square surface concept.
Cold Laser Therapy
During this procedure, different wavelengths and outputs of low-level light are applied directly to a targeted area. The body tissue then absorbs the light. The red and near-infrared light cause a reaction, and the damaged cells respond with a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration and reduces inflammation.
Although you’ll feel the laser device touching your skin, the procedure is painless and noninvasive. There will be no sound and you’ll feel no vibration or heat. Each treatment typically takes only a few minutes.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits including: Creating a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain.
