Shockwave Therapy (EPAT®)
Shockwave therapy or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT®) is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate the metabolism, enhances blood circulation and accelerates the healing process. Damaged tissues gradually regenerate and eventually heal.
EPAT® can treat acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain and/or pain that significantly impairs mobility or quality of life including: neck, shoulder, back and chest, upper extremity, lower extremity, foot and ankle, and myofascial trigger points.
Active Release Technique
Active Release Technique (ART) is a state of the art soft tissue system and movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with this technique. ART has proven itself to be a fast, effective, non-invasive way to heal a wide range of soft tissue injuries and movement-based muscular problems allowing people to get moving again comfortably and without pain.
Graston Technique® is an evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions through comprehensive training resulting in improved patient outcomes.
The technique uses specially-designed stainless steel instruments, along with appropriate therapeutic exercise, to precisely detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back and/or leg pain. Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain caused by a degenerated damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression.
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. Proper assessment, correct positioning and the use of pre-programmed patterns of distraction and relaxation may reduce disc pressure allowing the body's nutrients to accelerate disc healing.
