The Vectra Genisys Cold Laser Therapy
Vectra Genisys cold laser can be used in conjunction with chiropractic treatment plans. Dr. Bowser may recommend this therapy to patients who sustain neck, back, or joint injuries. The machine uses Infrared lasers to penetrate tissue for increased blood flow and allow for more rapid healing to an injured area.
There are many benefits of cold laser therapy as it is highly effective in treating many ailments including:
- Acute and chronic pain
- Ligament and Muscle strains and sprains
- Soft tissue injuries
- Tennis Elbow
- Back pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This treatment is safe, easy to apply, non-invasive, reduces the need for surgical intervention, and has no side effects or down time.
LSI E-Stim is a modality used at North Bay Spine and Rehab to help patients with chronic pain and/or acute, post-traumatic pain, relaxation of muscle spasm, slowing the muscle atrophy process, muscle re-education and maintaining or increasing range of motion.
E-Stim works to mimic the action of signals produced by the nervous system using electrical pulses to targeted nerves or muscles causing them to contract. This contraction helps in the healing process by:
- Increasing blood circulation to the injured tissue area aiding in the repair
- Strengthen unused or weak muscles
- Improving muscle strength by flexing and working the weakened muscles
- Adapts or trains the muscles for different response patterns
Kinesio tape is designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity to allow patients full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days, so patients are able to maintain their active lifestyles. When the tape is applied to the body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting the skin. It is believed that this helps to create a microscopic space between the skin and the tissues underneath it.
At North Bay Spine and Rehab, we use Kinesio taping to treat neck, back and joint related issues. Kinesio taping has been proven to help relieve pain from an injury, increase stability and improve posture.
