Soft Tissue Modalities

Electrical 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

Therapeutic 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.

 

 

S.M.

Dr. Munderloh is amazing, I have had shoulder problems for years, this is the only office I have gone to and actually seen results. I also love the new system that sends you reminder text messages about upcoming appointments. If you like me your have a crazy schedule and need the reminder. Over all great system and amazing staff!!

Having visited other chiropractic offices in Flagstaff, I feel Munderloh is the superior choice. Dr. Munderloh took much interest in the origin and history of my issues and provided immediate relief on the first visit. Most chiropractors know five basic techniques for adjustment from the Palmer school but he went well beyond.
We also worked on my range of motion as I have shoulder problems. Very impressive first visit and I would recommend this office to all.

To Dr. Stiegler and Dr. Munderloh,
I wanted to comment on the shot I was given as an alternative to Knee Replacement surgery. As you both know I was in need of a Knee replacement surgery and had already checked on having it done. Like a lot of Baby Boomers I kept putting it off hoping it would go away if I ignored the pain.Well of course that didn't happen. The pain was only getting worse and I was having trouble sleeping because my knee would lock up and I would wake up in a very painful way. I could not move my knee in any direction. It was a painful and slow process to unlock the knee so I could move. I was being treated at Munderloh Integrated Medical for a different issue and decided to ask about alternatives to knee replacements. We discussed it and I was given some information about PalinGen to read. I read it and decided that it was the way for me to go instead of the surgery. I liked the fact that recovery was a daily process as I was doing my daily activities. The only difference was not to do high impact activities for about 2 weeks. So I did the shot in the office which I thought would be painful but was not. Within a week of getting the shot I was able to sleep through the night without waking up in pain. I did feel like I had lubrication in and around the kneecap which made it easier to move. My knee was not locking up as I slept anymore so I was able to sleep through the night. This is huge for me, because waking up with a locked knee is very painful. I was also told by friends that i was not limping like I used too. My knee is improving daily and I do not have the pain I used to. I do have some aches and discomfort when I do too much during the day but I can deal with that. My knee feels better and I have noticed that I can walk up stairs without holding on now.I look forward to continual improvement in my knee and am very pleased with the progress so far. I am grateful to Dr. Stiegler and Dr. Munderloh for helping me through this process and would highly recommend the procedure as an alternative to Knee Replacement surgery. I understand it is also used on Shoulders and other parts of the body as my Dr. had the same procedure done to his shoulder.

The staff is always friendly, and I had the best massage today! The doctors really care about each patient, and take the time to figure out what is really wrong! I highly recommend getting in here! They will take the best care of you!

P.O.

I started coming to Munderloh Integrated Medical two months ago. The staff is very caring from Trent on up. Dr. Munderloh lsitens, is caring and is gentle with his adjustments.
Dr. Stiegler came up with a plan to reduce my over-all pain. He is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. For the first time in decade's I have hope. I would recommend these guys to anyone. It takes me two hours one way to get to their office, that says plenty.

C.M.

I absolutely love this place! I always get taken care of in the best way, and the front desk staff is always friendly and helpful! It's always too long until my next appointment, it can never come soon enough because every visit tops the last.

L.B.

This place was fantastic! I came here for the first time the other day, and the staff was friendly, and talkative. The doctor really asked the right questions, and got to the root of my problem. 10 out of 10 I would totally suggest this place!

T.S.

Dr. Munderloh and his team are AMAZING!!! They made the visit VERY enjoyable. Wouldn't go to anyone else. He is kind, friendly, and most of all he knows what he is doing! Can't wait for my next visit. Thank you guys so much!!
