MECHANICAL INTERSEGMENTAL TRACTION
Intersegmental traction table carefully elongates postural muscles and gently and effectively reestablishes normal range of motion in a comfortable, even manner while allowing healthy joint motion, circulation and mobility to return. The result is relaxed muscles and reduced spasms. Intersegmental traction helps increase the proper flow of spinal fluid and the absorption of nutrients, allowing for the necessary elasticity and motion of the spine. Mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously and gently stretching ligaments and muscles.
Creates a massage-like sensation by interacting with the body 120 times a minute. Increases blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments and muscles Improves balance, strength and mobility
This treatment should not be confused with diagnostic ultrasound, often used in prenatal screening, but is instead a therapeutic procedure that utilizes sound waves to treat injured muscles, joints, and soft tissues. The sound waves vibrate the tissues back and forth, creating a deep, micro-massage effect. In the case of a recent injury, this helps to decrease scar tissue and adhesion formation, which would otherwise interfere with the body's healing process. The sound waves also decrease inflammation by destroying unwanted inflammatory cells. The sound waves also accelerate healing by stimulating the activity of the cells responsible for cellular and tissue repair. In chronic cases, special settings are used to create a deep-heating effect, heating the tissues far below the skin's surface. This heat, along with the vibrations that are caused by the ultrasound, help to "melt away" the muscle spasms and "knots" felt in our muscles.
Often referred to as "muscle stim," the therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and speed healing. Often described by patients as a pleasant, "tingling" sensation, or "electrical massage," these impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins. These endorphins reduce pain and inflammation, thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues. This therapy is often used to treat acute or chronic pain, as well as strains or sprains of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the spine and extremities.
Percussion reduces adhesion and contraction; increases the amount of lymphatic and blood drainage, and decreases systemic nervous system tension and muscle spasm.
