Our Tools & Techniques
Sports and Traumatic Injuries
For traumatic and sports injuries, Hivamat has a significant edema-reducing effect, directly stimulates self-mobilization in areas relieved of pain, and enables an earlier return to active forms of therapy and the activities of daily living. Hivamat Therapy is used by a majority of major college and professional teams.
First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
RockBladesRockBlades are Instrument Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) tools used to treat muscle adhesions and pain. This is our first line of treatment for soft-tissue conditions.
Resistance Band Training
Keeping You Mobile and Flexible
As the body ages, tendons, muscles and ligaments lose water and as result become less pliable. However when you implement a band stretching program into your weekly exercise routine, it allows you to maintain and improve on joint mobility and muscle flexibility. A band’s pliability and construction is similar to a muscle and therefore easily allows you stretch muscles and joints in all direction. Free weights cannot be used as a stretching tool since they can only work in a single plane or direction.
Decreasing Exercise Induced Soreness
Lifting weight is going to result in joint and muscle trauma due to use of a constant resistance or force being applied to the muscle. Repeatedly performing this over several years will lead to joints breaking down. Appling a band’s accommodating ascending resistance is less traumatic on muscles and joints which over years allows individuals to exercise more often without the concern of added wear and tear on their joints.
Improve Movement Coordination
As the body ages and life becomes more sedentary, the body’s agility and coordination decrease. As a result, our exercise program needs to focus on helping maintain movement coordination and agility. Bands not only allow individuals to push, pull, press, squat and lunge but they also allow us to work on more coordinated movements of run, swing, throw and jumping. Once again, free weight are not able to simulate these movements.
Brain Stress Therapy
Brain Tap is a powerfully effective mind development tool designed to help you overcome the ill effects of the fight-or-flight response while achieving physical, mental and emotional balance.
This extensively researched light & sound technology creates a perfect symmetry of sound frequencies and light synchronization for the ultimate in binaural brainwave entrainment and relaxation. The combination helps guide you to a perfect balance of left/right brain synchronization and relaxed brainwave activity. In other words, BrainTap produces the relaxation response, giving your body precisely what it needs to get back in balance and reverse the effect of stress on the body.
At the same time, the BTT sessions that power your Brain Tap guide your mind to a state of laser-like focus so you can rid yourself of negative self-talk and achieve life goals!
The NeuroInfiniti Stress Response Evaluation is an effective and accurate method of measuring your physiological stress response. It is a 12 minute computerized test, which is a totally non-invasive exam using an instrument found in research facilities around the world. Sensors are attached to your skin in such areas as your shoulder muscles, the top of your head, your waist and your hands. There are no needles or any form of skin penetration. From this computerized test, we can compare your neurological response and recovery to three types of stress challenges.
Benefits from Biowave treatments include:
Instant Pain Relief – pain is reduced as you begin increasing the intensity.
Reduces the need for opiates and other pain medication.
Long Carryover Effect – provides up to 72 hours of pain relief and functional improvement and a cumulative benefit with multiple treatments.
Comfortable – a deep, smooth, continuous sensation during treatment.
Cox Instrument for spinal manipulation
This is the state-of-the-art chiropractic table that provides safe, gentle, and clinically effective clinical outcomes. The latest research now indicates when we perform a spinal manipulation, we are affecting the brain. The Cox technique adjusts your autonomic nervous system so you are not in fight or flight mode.
Motion Guidance is one of our main tools in our Neurological Performance Program. Most patients are visual learners and the Motion Guidance System allows for visual feedback during our active rehabilitation sessions. Patients find this tool more fun, and a superior way to reveal their body awareness during movement exercises.
