 At our Weston chiropractic clinic, we offer the following physiotherapy therapeutic procedures:

  • Ultrasound

  • Mechanical traction
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Heat/ice therapy

Electric Stimulation

Electricity in one form or another has been used to treat pain for over 100 years. Electrical stimulation is also known as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). TENS delivers a painless electrical current through the patient’s skin to specific nerves. The current produces mild heat that works to relieve stiffness and pain and helps to improve range of motion (mobility). This treatment is non-invasive with no known side effects. It may be used to control acute pain and chronic pain

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a common non-invasive therapy used to treat back and neck pain, tendon and ligament injury, muscle spasms, joint problems and other spine related conditions.

Our Weston chiropractors apply gel to the patient’s skin to help transmit the ultrasound waves into the tissues. The ultrasound probe is gently swirled over this area. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to deliver heat deep into tissues (e.g. muscles). This therapy promotes circulation and healing, relaxes muscle spasm, decreases inflammation and helps to alleviate pain.

Traction

Therapeutic spinal traction uses manually or mechanically created forces to stretch and mobilize the spine. Parts of the spinal column are pulled in opposite directions in order to stabilize or change the position of damaged aspects of the spine. In other words, Spinal Traction is constant or an intermittent pulling force applied to the spine to gradually stretch the spine, in order to stretch the muscles and ligaments, increasing the space between each vertebrae.

Hydrotherapy

The hydrotherapy bed offers many physiological and therapeutic benefits. The hydrotherapy bed offers a gentle or deep penetrating massage combined with heat therapy. The benefits are overwhelming for the well-being of the user.

The hydrotherapy bed’s unique combination of hydrotherapy, massotherapy, flotation sensation, and gentle or deep massage increases circulation, and removes and eliminates harmful toxins from the body. The hydrotherapy bed’s warm, dry massage system helps the body rejuvenate itself and melts away the stresses of the day.

Here are some of the benefits that the hydrotherapy bed heated treatment can do for you:

 

  Total relaxation
  Deep muscle stimulation
  Reduces stress & nervous tension
  Enhanced recovery from pain
  Invaluable relief from pain
  Detoxification of the body
  Joint stiffness
  Improves General Health
  Arthritic & rheumatic Conditions
  Lowers blood pressure
  relief from muscle spasms
  Reduces heart rate
  Reduces Fatigue
  Improves skin tone
  Aids in correcting insomnia
  Reduces tension, headaches

 

Hydrotherapy beds have been recognized as a valuable method of physical and psychological healing and rejuvenation, offering the user preventative and curative treatment. The hydrotherapy bed, therefore, promotes a variety of physiological effects contributing to a healthy lifestyle.

Through regular hydrotherapy bed sessions, many of our Weston chiropractic patients have experienced all of the above benefits.

Heat/Ice

Many people are not sure when to use heat and when to use ice in the self-treatment of pain and injuries. As a rule, any treatment should be individualized to the unique needs of the patient. That said, the advice that follows will serve as useful general guidelines on the proper use of heat & ice. Ask Dr. Browner or Dr. Behar about this treatment for your specific condition.

Cold Therapy

Ice therapy or cryotherapy is often thought of as the therapy of choice for acute injuries. If you are having pain as the result of an identifiable injury (from a fall, or a blow, or a sprain, strain, sports injury, car accident, etc.) then it is usually best to use an ice pack for the first 24-48 hours. Apply the ice pack for 10-20 minutes (not longer), and repeat at least three times per day, or up to once every hour if pain is severe. Also, it is important that you do not apply the ice directly to the skin. Instead, wrap the ice pack (or bag of frozen peas) in a paper towel or thin damp cloth prior to applying to the injured area. The ice will reduce pain, muscle spasm, inflammation and decrease tissue damage.

  • Heat/Cold Contrast TherapyIf your pain is not the direct result of an actual injury, or if the pain has persisted for more than 48 hours, it is usually best to use moist heat followed by cold. This technique is also especially useful in treating various non-traumatic, inflammatory forms of joint and muscle pain, including arthritis, chronic tendonitis, and swelling. The best way to do this is to apply moist heat for 3-5 minutes, followed by an ice pack or very cold water (50-60 degrees) for 30-60 seconds. Just one single repetition of this therapy, performed 1-3 times per day (depending upon the severity of your symptoms) is usually all you need to do.
