 Therapeutic Activities

 One-on-one training to help with balance,  strength and range of motion.

BioCleanse Footbath

The BioCleanse unit generates a programmable mix of positive and negative ions (charged atoms) which attach themselves to oppositely charged toxic particles and draw them out of the body through pores in the feet.  The result over several sessions is a remarkable release of many different toxic materials, a growing feeling of well-being and a significant increase in overall energy. BioCleanse sessions are painless, comfortable and easy.

Massage Therapy/Myofascial Release

The basic goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being.  Manual Therapy improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bring fresh oxygen to the body tissues.  This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease.  Manual Therapy can be used to promote general well-being and enhance self-esteem, while boosting the circulatory and immune systems to benefit blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, digestion and skin tone.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and helps accelerate the healing process.  It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions such as: acute, chronic, or post-operative pain, as well as arthritis, tendon/ligament problems, carpal tunnel, nerve root irritations, back and neck dysfunction, tennis elbow, burns, scars and more. 


Cold lasers are handheld devices used by the clinician and are often the size of a flashlight.  The laser is placed directly over the injured area.  During this time, the non-thermal photons of light that are emitted from the laser pass through the skins layers(the dermis, epidermis, and the subcutaneous tissue.

Spinal Traction

Lumbar Spinal Traction - can relieve pressure on the compressed nerves, helps relax and reduce muscle spasms.  Traction increases the space between the vertebrae - reducing pressure on intervertebral discs and nerve root.


Cervical Spinal Traction - is accepted as effective treatment for short-term relief of neck pain.  It can relieve muscle spasm and nerve root compression by stretching soft tissues and increasing the space between cervical vertebrae.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound machines are a treatment modality used by doctors of chiropractic physiotherapists that utilize high or low frequency sound waves.  These sound waves are transmitted to the surrounding tissue and vasculature.  They penetrate the muscles to cause deep tissue muscle warming.  This promotes tissue relaxation and therefore is useful in treating muscle tightness and spasms.  The warming effect of the sound saves also causes vessel vasodilation and increases circulation to the area and assists in healing.  This therapy can also be used to decrease inflammation.

Mechanism of Interferential Current Therapy

When two medium-frequency circuits of slightly different cycles per second are superimposed, interference is formed which blocks the transmission of pain messages at the spinal cord level.  This interferential simulation is concentrated at the point of intesection, deep in the tissues, between the electrodes.


IFC modulates a high frequency (4000 Hz), versus TENS which typically delivers at 125 Hz.  When current is pplied to skin, skin resistance decreaes as pulse frequency increases. Thus, IFC crosses the skin with greater ease and with less stimulation than with TENS. Interferential current reaches greater depths and over a larger volume of tissue than other forms of electrotherapy.  Normally, very deep pain is difficult reach with traditional modalities.  IFC increases circulation as well.

Interferential Current Therapy (IFC)​

Targeting the pain site, not the entire body

Interferential Current Therapy (IFC) i a noninvasive therapy indicated for the symptomatic relief from, and management of, chronic intractable pain and post-surgical an post-trauma acute pain.  it provides a safe and effective alternative to pharmacological approaches to pain control.  IFC has minimal side effects and is non-addictive.  Adverse reactions associated with electrotherapy may include skin irritation beneath the electrodes.

Clinical Application

Interferential current therapy has been used extensively to help manage pain, edema, and inflammation due to soft tissue irritation from trauma or degenerative changes, with less dependence on narcotics.  IFC can be used for pain associated with several condition including:


  • Back pain (most common)
  • Arthritis
  • Strains and sprains
  • Neuralgia
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
  • Shingles
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Interstitial Cystitis
