PulStar MIT Technique
Manipulative therapy, or joint adjusting, has been an effective method used to treat pain for centuries. PulStar MIT (multiple impulse therapy) is a combination of computer technology and manipulative therapy and involves applying a gentle, oscillating force to your back or to another body part. The PulStar instrument is also used to determine how each level of the spine is moving. Learn more about the PulStar system.
Spine-Sparing Advice and Training
The postures you adopt and the ways you move can be either more demanding or less demanding on your neck and back. In light of that, we will show you how you can perform your daily activities to spare your spine, thereby reducing your pain or risk of injury.
Pain education involves an easy-to-understand explanation of what pain is, how pain works, what is causing your pain, and how we can treat your pain. Patients who have a basic understanding of pain report less pain and disability, less fear and anxiety related to their pain, and an increased ability to engage in their everyday activities.
Physical activity is one of the most powerful and effective ways to combat pain. Exercise therapy involves performing specific movements or activities in order to decrease your pain and improve your spine’s resilience.
Neurodynamic therapy is a type of exercise therapy specifically designed to reduce symptoms arising from the nerves in your body.
Kinesiology taping involves applying strips of stretchy fabric tape over your skin to help control pain. It can be applied in various ways and to most body parts.
Microcurrent therapy is used to accelerate tissue healing. It involves applying a very small electrical current over an injured area for a predetermined length of time. The current applied is small enough that the vast majority of patients do not feel anything during treatment.
Interferential Current Therapy
Interferential current (IFC) is used to help alleviate pain. It involves applying a current over a painful area for a predetermined length of time. Most patients find the sensation to be rather pleasant, often reporting that it feels prickly or like a ‘buzzing’ sensation.
