Rehab Services Include:

Modalities & Treatments Utilized

  • Intervertebral Decompression Device (IDD):  Completes targeted distraction forces to specific cervical or lumbar spinal segments to reduce back and neck pain.  Indicated for herniated discs, sciatica, low back pain, degenerative disc disease, radiculopathies, spinal arthritis, and facet syndrome.  The IDD is a traction unit that utilizes a software program.
  • Anodyne Therapy: Infrared light releases nitric oxide to vasodilate the blood vessels which increases blood flow, circulation, and sensation and decreases pain and swelling in the extremities.  Indicated for diabetic neuropathy, wounds, Reynaud’s, Fibromyalgia, and numbness/pain following Chemotherapy. 
  • Fluidotherapy: Dry heat in the form of oscillating particles increases circulation and sensation of the extremities, improves mobility, relieves stiffness, and assists in decreasing pain.  Temperature can vary from 70-116 degrees.  Indicated for arthritis and most diagnoses causing pain and stiffness.
  • Ultrasound / Phonophoresis:  Ultrasound waves promote soft tissue healing, and provide deep heat.  When used as Phono with hydrocortisone cream, the ultrasound waves produce anti-inflammatory responses.  Indicated for bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, carpal tunnel, joint stiffness, and sprains/strains. 
  • Iontophoresis:  Electrical input of anti-inflammatory medication (dexamethasone) into areas that are painful and inflamed.  Indicated for tendonitis, bursitis, trigger points, and painful and inflamed areas.
  • Electrical Stimulation:  Delivers electric current to reduce pain and increase circulation in the areas of joints, muscles, or tissues.  Can also be used to facilitate movement in affected extremities after CVA, for foot drop, and for nerve palsy.   
  • Dry Needling:  Insertion of a tiny monofilament needle in a muscle(s) in order to release shortened bands of muscles, decrease trigger points, reduce pain, promote healing, reduce muscle tension, and restore normal function to the muscle.  Indicated for tendonitis, bursitis, and trigger points.
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM):  Use of applied instruments to promote mobilization of restricted fascial tissue, scar tissue, and adhesions.  IASTM promotes healing, reduces pain and chronic inflammation, mobilize restricted tissue and adhesions.  Indicated for most types of tendonitis, neck & back pain, scars, sprains, strains, swelling, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints.
  • VitalStim Therapy:  Application of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to the swallowing muscles to strengthen and reeducate the muscles and improve motor control of the swallowing mechanism.  VitalStim is utilized by the Speech-Language Pathologists (Speech Therapists).
  • Paraffin Wax: Moist heat used for hands.  Temperature ~130 degrees.  For stiff/painful hands.
  • Hydrotherapy:  Can include whirlpool (hot or cold) and contrast baths (hot and cold) for extremities that are painful, swollen, stiff, or have poor circulation.  Whirlpool can also be used with wound care.
