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.
-Cold Laser has been used extensively in Europe for over 30 years, and research shows that it increases the rate of healing by 3-400%.
-Ultrasound is a sound modality that stimulates the regeneration of muscles, ligaments and tendons. It also improves circulation, delivery of oxygen and removal of lactic acid.
-Electrical Muscle Stimulation and Interferential Current is the application of electrodes to the involved muscles. It reduces pain and spasm and is often done with the application of ice.
