There are usually soft tissues, muscles, ligaments and tendons that are inflamed or stressed when there is injury to the spinal joints. Modalities provide a treatment to accelerate the rate of healing and reduce the inflammation in these tissues.
-Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been approved by the FDA for use and research shows that it increases the rate of healing by 400%. The LLLT reduces inflation and pain, and increases cellular energy for healing.
-Electrical Muscle Stimulation and Inferential Current is the application of electrodes to the involved muscles. It reduces pain and spasm and is often done with the application of ice.
