Other Therapies
 
Light Therapy
 
Light therapy–specifically IR (infrared)–is a natural, noninvasive, nondrug modality for healing and thus relieving pain. LILT (Low Intensity Laser Therapy) is also infrared light but a more concentrated treatment. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved these technologies for temporary relief of aching joints and muscle pains, increased blood circulation and relaxed muscles.
 
“Biologists have found that cells exposed to near-infrared light from LED grow 150 to 200 percent faster. The light arrays increase energy inside cells that speed up the healing process.”
 
Traditional drugs stop the pain but are expensive, have potential side effects and do not heal the cause of the pain. Light therapy has no known negative side effects. Because no drugs are used, light therapy is a natural, noninvasive treatment for pain. Part of the natural spectrum, infrared light is something you are exposed to in a less-concentrated way every day. Light therapy is a cost-effective, natural way to heal the body and eliminate pain.
 
 
The physical effects of traction
 
Effects on spinal movement-the amount of movement varies according to the position of the spine, the amount of force, and the length of time the force is applied. Decreases in pain, paresthesia, or tingling while traction is applied may be caused by the physical separation of the vertebral segments and the resultant decrease in pressure on sensitive structures. If these changes occur while the patient is being treated with traction, the prognosis for the patient is good and traction should be continued as part of the treatment plan.
 
Effects on bone-bone changes usually occur in response to compressive or distractive loads.
 
Effects on ligaments-The ligamentous structures of the spinal column is stretched by traction. With rapid loading, the ligaments become stiffer or resistant to changes in length and are able to absorb a high load or force before failure occurs. With this type of loading, overstress could produce a significant injury.
 
Effects on the disk-The disk helps to dissipate compressive forces while the spine is in an erect position. When an injury occurs to the disk structures and the disk loses its normal fullness, the vertebrae can move closer together.
Effects on articular facet joints-The articular joints of the spine can be affected by traction, primarily through increased separation of the joint surfaces.
 
Effects on the muscular system-The vertebral muscles can be effectively stretched by traction provided that the positions of the spine during traction are selected to optimize the stretch of particular muscle groups. The initial stretch should come from body positioning, and the addition of traction then provides some additional stretch.
 
Effects on the nerves-The nerve is the structure at which traction’s effects are most often directed. Pressure on nerves or roots from bulging disk material, irritated facet joints, bony spurs, or narrowed foramen size causes the neurologic malfunctioning often associated with spinal pain. Unrelieved pressure on a nerve causes slowing and eventual loss of impulse conduction.
 
Iontphoresis
 
Iontphoresis is a therapeutic technique that involves the introduction of ions into the body tissues by means of electrical current.
 
Iontophoresis is used in the treatment of inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions, for analgesic effects, scar modification, wound healing, and in treating edema, calcium deposits, and hyperhidrosis.
 
Paraffin Bath
 
A combined paraffin and mineral oil immersion commonly used on the hands and feet for distal temperature gains in blood flow and temperature.
 
The DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator
 
The DMS uses mechanical percussion vibrations that reach deep into the muscle tissue to stimulate proprioceptive functions and relieve muscle pain associated with strains, lactic acid build up, and scar tissue. More effective than any other vibration therapy device on the market, the DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator offers unmatched muscle pain relief!
 
Concentrating on general or local muscle spasms, the DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator increases muscle metabolism and increases the lactic acid cycle to relieve pain.
 
The DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator uses deep, rapid, short-duration percussion for effective management of acute and chronic pain due to migraine headaches, sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, edema, myofacial pain and frozen joints. Able to reach deeper into the muscle tissue than any other product on the market, the DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator enables athletes to do more exercise and training, as well as recover from injuries quicker. The DMS Deep Muscle Stimulator also provides a gentle stretching action to both the muscles and connective tissues that surround and support the muscles and many other parts of the body, which helps keep these tissues elastic
