What are some of the therapies that we offer?


  • EMS: Electric muscle stimulation therapy enhances tissue healing and controls inflammation. It works by reducing swelling and increasing circulation. EMS blocks nerve transmission at the spinal cord, thereby reducing pain sensations.

  • Ultrasound: is used to minimize muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the treated tissues. This helps to reduce stiffness, swelling, and pain, increase circulation, and promote pain-free movement. Ultrasound is a painless procedure, and many people find it relaxing.

  • Traction: The intersegmental traction table gently elongates the postural muscles of the spine in a comfortable and uniform manner so that the normal joint movement, mobility and circulation are restored.

  • Vibration Platform Fitness: Exercise Training on our vibration plate offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes such as:


    • increased muscle strength and flexibility
    • improved range of motion
    • decreased cellulite
    • increased bone mineral density
    • reduced pain and soreness
    • faster recovery from exercise
  • Cold Laser Therapy: Laser Therapy is an effective, non-invasive, drug-free solution that has no known side effects. It has been used as a means for reducing pain and speeding healing for over 30 years. We use this therapy to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes at the cellular level. With cold laser therapy, particles of energy are carried in a laser and absorbed by the cell membrane’s photoreceptors after penetrating the skin surface. The cells and tissues then convert this light energy into biochemical energy, fueling a biological process that decreases swelling, reduce back pain and inflammation, and improve circulation.

  • Aqua Massage: The hydrotherapy bed's unique combination of water therapy, jet propulsion therapy, floatation sensation, and gentle or deep massage increases circulation, and removes and eliminates harmful toxins from the body. The hydrotherapy bed's warm, dry massage system helps the body rejuvenate itself and melts away the stresses of the day.

  • Manipulation and Mobilization of the Spine: In spinal manipulation, the practitioner uses their hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to a specific joint. Patients often hear popping noises, like when you crack your knuckles.

    In spinal mobilization, practitioners use less forceful thrusts and more stretching. They will sometimes use an "activator," which is a small metal tool that applies force directly to one vertebra.

  • Inversion Therapy: Unlike surgery, mechanical traction, and other invasive forms of treatment, using a Inversion Table is a gentle, passive way to target pain at the source and care for all weight-bearing joints. This progressive form of traction allows each joint to be decompressed by the same weight that compresses it while upright. To put it simply, inverted decompression creates an ideal stretch that improves spinal health and targets back pain by helping to 1) rehydrate discs, 2) reduce nerve pressure, 3) realign the spine and 4) relax tense muscles. Best of all, decompressing on an inversion table only takes a few minutes and feels great!
