To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Jassy's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, we at Jassy Chiropractic Center also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
Cold Laser therapy applies outputs and wavelengths of low-level light directly to the affected area. The light is absorbed by the body tissue, causing a physiological reaction that promotes regeneration in damaged cells. It uses low levels of light to treat a variety of conditions, including tendinitis, back pain, neck pain, Fibromyalgia, and TMJ. This FDA-approved procedure reduces pain and inflammation and strengthens damaged tissue. As a result, the healing process is accelerated. Depending upon the condition you are being treated for, the doctor may use this innovative procedure as part of your treatment plan, ensuring you receive the best care possible.
Ultrasound therapy assists in the break-down of scar tissue, stimulating localized blood flow, and promoting the relaxation of tissue. This is important, because increasing localized blood flow can help to reduce inflammation and swelling in the targeted area.Ultimately, ultrasound therapy can be successful for many different conditions. The treatment acts almost like a massage that aids in the reduction of swelling and increase of blood flow. It also helps to decrease pain, stiffness, and spasms. Whether the pain/ injury is acute or something more chronic, ultrasound therapy can be an excellent alternative to other common treatment methods.
Electric muscle stimulation therapy is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation in treating pain and muscle spasms. It is also helpful in keeping muscles active especially after any type neuromusculoskeletal or spinal injury. During this therapy, electrodes are placed on the skin that send light electrical pulses to different areas of the body with the purpose of reducing inflammation, relieving muscle spasms and improving back pain. Moist heat is also incorporated in this treatment for added therapeutic benefits.
Percussive therapy is a gentle treatment approach for muscle/ligament problems and related myofascial conditions. The Percussor is a hand-held instrument that distributes waves of percussive impulses deep into the tissues of the body which promotes an increase in lymphatic flow and circulation. Percussion also can be used to decrease muscle spasm, release joints, and to loosen up fixated areas without using heavy forces.
