Soft Tissue Modalities

 

Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 4.01.12 PMElectrical Stimulation

EMS brings relief for many soft tissue conditions including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and relaxing spasmodic muscles. EMS units stimulate muscle nerves and cause muscle fibers to contract so they can be used beneficially in acute injury situations because they prevent muscle atrophy and increase blood flow to the affected area. EMS is applied with mildly sticky pads to the area that is experiencing pain or spasms. A tingling sensation, which is not uncomfortable, can be felt when the EMS unit is on. Typically EMS is applied before you get your adjustment so that your muscles are in a relaxed state.



 

Laser Light Therapy Laser Light Therapy is a physical modality that emits photons (light) in very specific regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Laser Light Therapy is the most researched and published modality in physical rehabilitation and has demonstrated a multitude of clinical benefits that include relieving pain from minor muscular and joint aches, pain and stiffness associated with arthritis, relaxing muscle spasms and increasing local blood circulation.

• Decreased pain levels
• Reduced inflammation
• Increased tissue proliferation & regeneration
• Accelerated soft tissue and bone repair
• Increased tissue tensile strength
• Enhanced nerve regeneration & function
• Increased cell metabolism
• Increased enzymatic responses
• Increased cell membrane potentials
• Increased microcirculation & vasodilation
• Increased lymphatic flow
• Increased collagen production Enhanced angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels)

 

 



Ultrasound

 

Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 4.03.28 PMTherapeutic ultrasound as a treatment modality that has been used by therapists over the last 50 years to treat soft tissue injuries. Ultrasonic waves (sound waves of a high frequency) are produced by means of mechanical vibration of the metal treatment head of the ultrasound machine. This treatment head is then moved over the surface of the skin in the region of the injury. When sound waves come into contact with air it causes a dissipation of the waves, and so a special ultrasound gel is placed on the skin to ensure maximal contact between the treatment head and the surface of
the skin.
