Chiropractic Adjustments: Also called spinal manipulation — involves moving a joint beyond its usual range of motion but not beyond the range of motion the joint is designed to move, anatomically speaking. You often will hear a popping or cracking noise during chiropractic adjustment as the joint is manipulated. The goal of chiropractic adjustment is to relieve pain and improve your body's physical function. Read More about Chiropractic Adjustment

Interferential / Electrical Stimulations
Small amounts of electrical impulses are induced into the tissues in the vicinity of the injury. Where these waves intersect below the surface of the skin, low-frequency stimulation is created. This prompts the body to secrete endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain. Read More Interferential / Electrical
Intersegmental Traction / Rollers

Diathermy / Autotherm
The diathermy (Auto) energy field passes through the softer tissues near the surface of the body, turning into heat when reaching the more dense tissues below the surface. This increases blood circulation and can help speed the healing process. Read More about Diathermy / Autotherm
Ice Therapy / Ice massage / Cryotherapy
Ice causes the veins in the affected tissue area to constrict. This reduces the flow of blood while acting as kind of anesthetic to numb the pain. But when the ice is removed (and this is key), the veins compensate by expanding, which then allows a large volume of blood to rush to the affected area. The blood brings with it important chemicals that aid in the healing process. Read More
Dilates the blood vessels of the affected muscles, allowing them to relax and begin healing. Helps lower discomfort by reducing the amount of pain signals going to the brain. Increases the ability of your muscles to easily flex and stretch, thereby decreasing stiffness. Read More
Ultrasound (deep heat treatment) utilizes sound waves to treat injured muscles, joints, and soft tissues by increasing blood flow, resulting in relaxing muscle spasms, repairing damaged tissue and speeding the healing process.
Muscle and Soft tissue Stretching:
Stretching the muscles and connective tissues increases ranges of motion in the areas that have been stretched. Improved blood flow, less scar tissue, repairing of damaged and torn muscle and tendon fibres, and less pain are just some of the many benefits of this therapy.
Massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing, and it benefit of the musculoskeletal, circulatory-lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body. In fact, massage therapy positively influences the overall health and well-being. Read More about Massage
