Chiropractic
Chiropractic Manipulation
 

A Chiropractic Manipulation is the controlled movement of a joint, by a licensed Chiropractic Physician, that allows a restricted joint to move with greater ease. This specialized technique is used by Chiropractic Physicians at Spinal Rehab and Wellness Center to mobilize the restricted joint and reduce pain by relieving irritation on the nerve. Blood flow to the surrounding area is improved allowing a greater rate of healing. The cavitation or popping sound you might hear during a manipulation is the exchange of gas from the fluid joint, similar to opening a bottle of soda.
 

Physiotherapy
 
Electrical Stim
 

Electrical Stimulation, 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 "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.

 
Therapeutic Ultrasound
 

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.

 
Traction
 

Whether applied manually or mechanically, the benefits of traction are similar. It is an excellent therapy choice to reduce pressure on cervical (neck) or lumbar (lower back) discs. Traction effectively reduces joint and nerve pain, pressure, and inflammation, caused by bulging or herniated discs. This procedure is quite comfortable, and lasts several minutes.

 
Cryotherapy
 

Ice therapy (Cryotherapy) is often thought of as the therapy of choice for acute injuries. Actually, the application of ice over any painful tissue is usually effective at any stage of an injury. It works by constricting blood flow to the tissue, thereby reducing swelling, pain, and muscular spasms. It is very important to use ice correctly. It should be used for a maximum of 20 minutes, but may be applied each hour. Also, it is important that you do not apply the ice directly to the skin. Instead, wrap the ice pack in a paper towel or thin damp cloth prior to applying to the injured area.

 
Heat Therapy
 

The use of heat is effective in treating conditions that are more chronic in nature. It is not recommended that heat be used within the first few days of a new injury, especially when any signs of swelling are present. The best forms of heat are in the form of a warm bath/shower or a moist heating pad. Avoid "dry" heating pads, as they can promote additional swelling and inflammation. Apply moist heat for a maximum of 20 minutes per hour. Never go to sleep with a heating pad, as this can result in increased pain and tissue damage.

 
Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation
 

Dr. Mira Dhutia has done extensive postgraduate training in rehabilitation and in the field of manual medicine. Numerous studies have demonstrated, patients who understand their condition and engage in an active exercise program get well faster and stay well longer. Whether you suffer from an acute injury or chronic pain, a rehabilitation program will be customized to meet your individual needs. A teamwork approach is adopted, with you as an equal participant in your health care. You will become well educated about your condition and encouraged to take an active role in regaining your health, performance, and wellness. Completion of your program will build strength, endurance and stability with your body to prevent re-injury.

 
Ergonomics
 

Ergonomics is the art form of making sure your work environment fits to your individual body type. Ergonomics are designed to make sure you do not cause injury (micro-trauma, or overuse injury) to yourself at the office. The doctors at Spinal Rehab have worked with many patients and evaluated their work ergonomics to help prevent injury at work. Proper ergonomics helps each individual work to their maximum potential. Ergonomic evaluations are routine at Spinal Rehab and Wellness Center. Our team of specialists can help identify if your office is ergonomically sound for you.

Massage Therapy
 
Massage
 

A massage is the treatment of superficial parts of the body by rubbing, stroking, kneading, or slapping. Massages are usually performed to relieve muscle stiffness, spasms, or cramps and to relieve anxiety and tension.

 

There are many different types of massages. The types of massages are generalized to their origin (eastern and western). Some of the most common Eastern types are: Shiatsu, Accupressure, and Polarity. Eastern types of massages involve an understanding of the body's energy. Some of the common Western types are: Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trager, Myofascial Release, and Connective Tissue Therapy. Western types are based in an anatomical understanding of our body.

 

Each person responds differently to massage and there isn't just one style which is best for all.

 
How Does Massage Work?
 

Basic Massage techinques such as stroking, kneading, and rubbing stimulate physical and emotional healing. They stimulate physical and emotional healing by:

 
1. Physical therapy on the part of the body that is being massaged
 

2. Stimulation of the lymphatic system. (The lymphatic system carries waste products out of your body and defends your body against infection)

 
Deep Tissue Massage
 

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.

 

Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.

 
Why get a Deep Tissue Massage?
 

It feels good and it is beneficial to your health. When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A deep-tissue massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. Because many toxins are released, it's important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.

 
Acupuncture
 

Acupuncture is a holistic form of Chinese medicine that has been in practice for centuries. It is based on the theory that vital energy, called Qi (pronounced “chee”) flows through the body along energetic pathways called meridians. It is believed that pain and illness results from a blockage or an imbalance of Qi. The purpose of acupuncture and its modalities is to restore Qi back to a balanced flow.  

 

During an acupuncture treatment, the practitioner will tap fine, sterile, single-use, needles into the skin at specific points indicated to treat the patient’s health concerns. Several needles may be used in one treatment, typically being retained in the body for 30 minutes. It is a safe, relatively painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems on a physical, emotional, and neurological level, as well as improve overall well-being.  

 

Cupping and Gua sha are needle-free therapies that can be combined with acupuncture or used independently. Cupping is the method of adhering glass cups to the body to stimulate the flow of Qi and blood in the superficial muscle layers, alleviating joint and muscle pain, especially on the neck and back. Cupping normally causes redness, which fade within a week. Gua sha is a technique used to ease joint and muscle pain, tension, and adhesion. A special tool is used to gently scrape along the problem area. It is similar to the Graston Technique, but focuses on stimulating Qi and blood circulation along the affected meridians. It also may cause redness, but to a lesser extent than cupping.  

 
Lipo Light
 

If you've ever considered liposuction, a tummy tuck, or other forms of cosmetic surgery to eliminate your trouble spots, then you owe it to yourself to learn how we can help you achieve the same results without surgery! We now feature the Lipo laser-like Light body contouring system. We offer a 100% non-surgical, non-invasive, safe, pain-free, spot fat reduction and body contouring system. The Lipo Light Advanced Body Contouring system is the latest treatment in the non-invasive body contouring market.

At Spinal Rehab & Wellness Center, we believe in conservative, scientifically proven, safe, non-painful methods to improve your health and well-being.  

 

We use a high quality LED RED LIGHT, which has been proven to increase collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. It has also been proven that certain wavelengths, such as 635 nanometers, can trigger the body's own natural ability to breakdown fat; a process called lipolysis. During this process the body can release fatty acids which are then used by the body during exercise. Lipo Light is equipped with 8 LED paddles. Depending on the area of the body part, it is recommended to use 4-8 paddles at any one time over the treatment area. After each session, it is imperative that you exercise. We place patients on a Whole Body Vibration machine for 10 minutes immediately following each session. This ensures the lymphatic system is stimulated and that the waste contents are not reabsorbed by the fat cells. The paddles are held in place against the area to be treated by an adjustable elastic strap. During the treatment, the paddles are held directly against the skin for maximum effect. Treatments last for a period of 10 minutes during which you will experience the warmth from the LED diodes in the paddles. It is recommended that treatments are spaced evenly, on average 2 treatments per week, for 4 weeks.
