Massage therapy is a complementary form of musculoskeletal treatment that helps relax the muscles and the body through a natural treatment of soft tissue injuries. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling, and relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms and increase a patient’s range of motion while also aiding in a patient’s recovery. We have licensed massage therapists who have the experience and desire to help patients reach their best state of health through soft tissue work. We offer massages both through insurance and on a cash basis. These massage services can help with lower back pain treatment, back pain treatment overall, and neck pain relief.
If you have pain in your neck or lower back or pain caused by disc problems, then you may be able to benefit from chiropractic traction therapy. This therapy is used when it is beneficial to gently pull apart the vertebrae slightly where the disc is damaged. It is painless. Separating them just slightly enables healing to take place and pain relief is often felt immediately. This will help the disc to get more nourishment and to begin the healing process. This lower back pain treatment is ideal for lower back and neck pain relief.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation:
Electric stimulation therapy is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation in treating muscle spasms and pain. It can help prevent atrophy and build strength in patients with sports injuries and other injuries. It is also helpful in keeping muscles active, especially after strokes or any type of spinal cord injury.
