Complementary Therapies

Cold laser

 

A cold laser emits light-energy beams that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the cells.

In doing so, they stimulate the synthesis of proteins, which allows tissues to regenerate.

Cold laser therapy is used to treat chronic pain such as bursitis, tendonitis, and fasciitis as well as bulging disks (the stage preceding disk herniation).

Electrotherapies

 

Interference current electrotherapy is the use of low frequency electrical currents that have a precise physiological action on the tissues.

Using 2 or 4 electrodes, the intensity and frequency of the current will allow to:

 

- reduce pain (analgesic effect)

- increase blood circulation

- increase lymphatic circulation

- stimulate or relax the muscles in spasms

 

There is also the EMS Electrical Muscle Stim also called Russian Stim, which serves to stimulate and activate the muscles.

Ultrasound therapy

 

When they come in contact with an inflammation (bursitis or tendonitis, for example), sound waves cause a vibration similar to a micro-massage.

They produce a sensation of heat and stimulate circulation, which helps to accelerate healing and reduces inflammation.

Kinesiotaping

 

Therapeutic taping method using an elastic ribbon tack specially designed to re-educate the neuromuscular system, decrease pain and inflammation, increase muscle performance.

Kinesiotaping can be used alone or in addition to chiropractic treatment. This makes it possible to prolong the benefits of the treatment.

Kinesiotaping is indicated for both acute and chronic conditions. Applicable anywhere, such as back, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle.
