Cryotherapy, a type of cold therapy, has been proven to offer greater benefits compared to other superficial thermal treatments when it comes to reaching deep into the body. During a session, cryotherapy can effectively lower the intramuscular temperatures by three to seven degrees Celsius, making it a highly beneficial treatment for the acute phase of local metabolism, inflammation, and pain. This form of therapeutic bodywork is often utilized in a chiropractic clinic to help improve the overall health and well-being of patients.
Also known as thermal therapy, superficial heat therapy is a commonly used modality in the treatment of pain and inflammation. By heating the skin and underlying tissues to a temperature of one to two centimeters deep, this therapy has the ability to relax muscles, reduce muscle spasms, and alleviate pain. It is often utilized during the acute phase of treatment, when the main objective is to quickly diminish pain and swelling. Despite its limited depth of penetration, superficial heat therapy has been shown to be effective in providing temporary pain relief and promoting relaxation in the affected area.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
TENS is a non-invasive pain relief treatment that uses low voltage electrical current to relieve pain. It is a widely used therapy for chronic pain conditions such as low back pain, and has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of other pain conditions as well. TENS works by stimulating the nerve fibers and reducing the pain signals that are sent to the brain.
E-stim is a highly effective treatment approach that utilizes the strategic placement of electrodes to deliver electrical currents to specific muscle groups. This method of treatment has been utilized for a variety of purposes, including neuromuscular reeducation, pain reduction, and the improvement of muscle function. By stimulating the targeted muscles with electrical impulses, E-stim therapy can help to decrease muscle spasms and atrophy, while also increasing range of motion. This combination of effects can lead to significant improvements in overall musculoskeletal health, making E-stim a valuable tool in the management of chronic pain conditions and other movement disorders.
Myofascial Release is a gentle and effective manual therapy that aims to eliminate pain and restore motion by applying sustained pressure on the myofascial connective tissue. This connective tissue can become restricted due to various reasons, such as trauma, inflammation, or surgeries, and can result in tensile pressures as high as 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain-sensitive structures that are not easily detected through standard imaging methods like X-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, and electromyography. Consequently, this therapeutic bodywork treatment is a valuable tool.
