Of course, adjustments are a big part of what we do here at Sandstone Chiropractic.
We believe the key to better overall health starts with the spine. Not only does it protect a key part of the central nervous system, but it also protects the nerves that radiate to every other part of your body. However, we do more than just adjustments in our office. In fact, these therapies are a big part of the successes of our patient’s experience.
Cushioned by thick, gelatinous discs, your vertebrae are designed to move together as you walk, stand, run, and jump. Over time, or with an injury, these discs often slip out of place or rupture, causing pain in your back and radiating pain, numbness and burning in your arms and legs. Using state-of-the-art technology, spinal decompression creates space for the discs to return to their proper position or begin the healing process. This non-invasive treatment often produces results in as little as one visit with the best results happening over time.
Rapid Release Technology (RRT)
If you have ever wanted the benefits of a 30-minute massage in 3 to 5 minutes, Rapid Release Technology (RRT) is for you. Not only does this tool provide pain relief and muscle relaxation, but it has also been clinically proven to break up scar tissue in old injuries, reduce muscle spasm and speed the healing process.
The benefits of cryotherapy have been well documented. Temporary exposure to cold temperatures has been linked to reductions in pain and migraine symptoms as well as improved mood and better movement. While we offer whole-body cryotherapy in some locations, the Cryo Fos machine delivers the benefits of cryotherapy in a targeted area. This allows us to focus on reducing inflammation in a specific area by supercooling the skin. Cryo Fos is safe and effective at relieving pain without medication or invasive therapies.
Class IV Laser Therapy
The medical community is just scratching the surface of what lasers can do. Class IV laser offers targeted “cold laser” therapy. This means the laser never heats up but does promote blood flow to the affected area. Increased blood flow means faster healing times. In fact, Class IV laser therapy has been proven to speed healing by three to four times. Patients simply lay on a table with the injured area facing the laser. This pain-free procedure lasts only six to twelve minutes, but the effects continue for hours, up to days after therapy is complete.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
Your body uses electricity to perform every function imaginable. From getting out of bed to keeping your heart rate steady, electricity plays a vital role in your overall health. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) pulses tens of thousands of volts of electric energy at a billionth of a second rate. This type of electricity is safe and painless but supercharges your cells, allowing them to heal, regenerate and multiply. Better cell movement and regeneration means faster recovery after an injury.
