Physical Therapy Q & A

Augustine Chiropractic

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy is the treatment of an injury, an illness, or a chronic issue through non-invasive methods. Surgery and drugs are never used in physical therapy. It is an all natural way to help the body recover, much like chiropractic adjustments are. Therefore, chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy techniques combine very well.

What is the Erchonia Laser?

The Erchonia Laser is a laser that sends visible coherent light directly to the problem area of the body. The bundles of light energy move through the skin layers to access the cell membrane, prompting an increase in intracellular energy. The laser encourages micro-circulation increase and helps with tissue regeneration. Ultimately, the Erchonia Laser results in less pain, reduced inflammation, and a better range of motion for the patient.

What is Electro-Muscle Stimulation?

In Electro-Muscle Stimulation, small amounts of electrical current are sent directly into the areas of pain through small electrodes. This treatment can help reduce spasticity and can decrease swelling as well as relieving pain.

What is Intersegmental Traction?

In Intersegmental Traction, the patient will lay facing the ceiling on a bench table. The rollers under the surface will then move up and down the spine to gently stretch the spinal joints. This can help increase flexibility and blood flow to the disc. Range of motion can improve and help with pain relief.

What is Cryotherapy?

In cryotherapy, ice packs are used to provide surface cooling to the area in pain. This constricts the blood vessels, provides numbing, and helps slow or stop muscle spasms. Cold temperatures help interrupt nerve pain signals, so cryotherapy is an excellent option for temporary relief.

What is Therapeutic Massage?

Therapeutic massage is different from the type of massage that most people are familiar with. While therapeutic massage provides relaxation just like other types of massage, it is specifically targeted for relief of symptoms. Therapeutic massage can be particularly helpful in reducing swelling and inflammation.
