Alternative Drug Free Therapies to Reduce Pain
Chiropractic care is recommended as one of the most effective treatments for neck, back, shoulder, and joint pain. Sometimes patients require additional complementary treatments in order to maximize the results obtained from adjustments. Conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, hip pain, herniated disc, and sciatica, to mention a few, can be treated and corrected in fewer sessions with the aid of the non-surgical therapies available in our state-of-the-art NYC rehabilitation facility. We specialize in chiropractic, physical therapy, pain management, massage therapy, acupuncture, and provide the following treatments and more.
Electric stimulation: A low-level electric charge helps stimulate the nerves and surrounding tissue to restore range of motion and proper function to the affected area. This therapy is very routinely used in the treatment of low back pain. Electrodes are placed directly on the area and allowed to take effect for a few minutes; depending on the condition being treated, this can be done on a repetitive motion or stationary table. A cold or warm compress can be added to simultaneously treat the area's soft tissue and further assist in the relief of inflammation and pain.
Kinesio® taping: A simple, yet revolutionary technique that allows for prevention and treatment of a wide range of sports related injuries by providing muscular stabilization and support and stimulating blood flow and lymphatic drainage while relieving pain by decreasing pressure on the nerves and surrounding tissues. This specially-designed tape does not restrict the patient's natural movement and allows for recovery (as well as prevention) of injury without hindering the user's range of motion. My team is certified to provide this groundbreaking technique to patients in NYC looking for non-restrictive pain relief for athletic injuries.
Cold laser therapy: A low-energy cold laser is directed at the affected tissue to stimulate cellular recuperation and tissue repair. After a few treatments, patients will experience a reduction in inflammation, discomfort, and pain. Cold laser therapy is highly effective, has no known side-effects, and can greatly aid in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, neck pain, back pain, sprains, tendonitis, dislocations, ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, ligament or muscle ruptures, headaches, and several types of injuries.
Graston Technique®: A specialized treatment that targets injured or damaged soft tissue and relieves pain by mobilizing the tissue to remove adhesions, scar tissue, and other obstructions with the use of stainless steel tools guided by hand. The doctors on my team are extensively trained in the Graston Technique® and have treated athletes and everyday patients in NYC suffering from inflammation, pain, and post-injury trauma.
All of the treatments offered at our NYC chiropractic and rehabilitation facility are non-surgical and require minimal or no downtime with no side-effects.
