Learn More About Some of Our Treatments:
Electric Muscle Stimulation – We attach self-adhesive pads to the area where you are experiencing pain. These pads connect via wires to a machine that creates a low current designed to cause your muscles to contract. As contracting muscles can relieve pain and reduce swelling, electric muscle stimulation can be a particularly helpful method of therapy.
Spinal Decompression – Spinal decompression is a type of traction used to help reduce or entirely relieve back pain. Your chiropractor will gently stretch your spine to take pressure off the spinal disks. Spinal decompression can retract any herniated disks you may have, allowing your spine to heal.
Spinal Manipulation – Spinal manipulation combines moving the joints, massage, exercise, and physical therapy to achieve pain relief. Your chiropractor, Dr. Artkowsky, will use this type of manual therapy to treat back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as to relieve headaches, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.
Shortwave Diathermy – A form of electro-magnetic energy, shortwave diathermy is the deepest form of heat therapy possible. A trained chiropractor or assistant uses energy on the shortwave radio frequency to selectively heat your body’s soft tissue. This makes this type of therapy perfect for the large muscles of your lower back, as well as other thick muscles.
Cox Flexion Distraction – Cox flexion distraction is a hands-on form of spinal manipulation that aims to relieve spinal pain by reducing pressure on spinal nerves and returning motion to the joints in the spine. This technique is performed by a chiropractor trained in the Cox® Technic, and requires a specialized chiropractic table to perform properly.
