Your chiropractic care and spinal rehabilitation at Elite Healthcare will involve some or all of the following physical therapy.
Muscle Stimulation (TENS)
Muscle stimulation increases the circulation in the affected area, thus increasing the healing time and relaxes muscle spasms so you benefit most out of the rehab/ adjustments.
The 6-Way cervical stretch is necessary for stretching chronic splinted postural muscles so that their splinted memory can be removed and normal muscle function and muscle memory can be re-established
After the muscles have been stretched repetitive cervical traction can be performed.
Repetitive Cervical Traction
These movements facilitate cervical disc mobility, re-hydration, nutrition delivery and waste elimination. The patented Repetitive Cervical Traction provides similar movement to the neck as the Wobble Chair does the back.
Benefits of the Repetitive Cervical Traction:
- Helps with cartilage growth.
- Decreases healing time.
- Restores perfect disc function.
- Improves cervical and lumbar curves.
- Rehydrates thin discs.
- Reduces discomfort in the neck, arms, mid and low back.
The Wobble Chair is a patented, specially-designed seat that rotates 360°, flexes 40° side to side and flexes 35° front to back on a universal type joint. These movements facilitate lumbar disc mobility, re-hydration, nutrition delivery and waste elimination.
Benefits of the Wobble Chair:
- Strengthens your lumbar discs.
- Strengthens your ligaments and tendons.
- Facilitates nutrition of your discs and elimination of waste products.
- Increases motion in your lumbar spine.
- Increases proprioception from the lumbar spine to brain (helps them talk to each other better, thereby reducing risk of injury).
