Injury Rehab

Acute / Chronic Injury Rehab

When you begin adding motion to any structure, the likelihood of acute injury goes up. From foot, ankles, knees, hips, low back, etc., injuries are often times inevitable. With proper acute injury treatment, you can resolve these issues quickly, and that is important so that momentum is not lost. Cold laser therapy, kinesio-taping, chiropractic adjustments and proper management are the key when these injuries occur.
 

Cold Laser Therapy

HOW IT WORKS
Cold laser light, penetrating much deeper than other light wave forms, activates increased ATP synthesis. Through the action of photo bio-stimulation, oxidative metabolism is increased. Laser irradiation stimulates increased endorphin release (your bodies natural feel good chemicals) and increased prostaglandin synthesis.
Damaged skeletal, connective and neurological tissues and structures react with enhanced healing in the presence of low level laser irradiation as collagen synthesis and production, satellite cell presence and cellular metabolism are increased as a result of the light stimulation and improved vascular, lymphatic and enzymatic activity.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Cold Laser therapy has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair components in the presence of injury and inflammation. By modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, cold laser therapy is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage and loss of function, in addition to facilitating more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures. Multiple clinical studies have noted the following results of cold laser therapy

  • Increased collagen production
  • Enhanced nerve regeneration
  • Increased vasodilation
  • Reduced inflammatory duration
  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Increased pain threshold
  • Increased cell membrane potential
  • Reduced edema magnitude
  • Incrased microcirculation
  • Increased tissue and bone repair
  • Increased lymphatic response
  • Increased enzyme response

Kiniseo Tape

For more than 25 years,  Kinesio Taping has been breaking new ground in the fields of sports performance, pain management and physical therapy.

Kinesio Taping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Kenzo Kase was already a well-known Japanese practitioner licensed in chiropractic and acupuncture. He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human skin, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.

Dr. Kase was experienced with both Japanese and US norms for patient treatment. He began to have questions about the limitations of the Western medical mindset. He heard of a cryotherapy treatment for arthritis that utilized tape to adjust joint distortion.  In Western medicine the presumption had been that once a joint is in a certain shape that cannot be changed. He was intrigued by the possibilities that this treatment could remediate the distortion.

He developed the tape, which has a texture and elasticity very close to living human tissue, in response to limitations he encountered working with rigid sports taping methods on his own patients.In cases of injury or overuse, the muscle loses its elasticity so he needed to develop a tape that would have the same elasticity as healthy human muscle.

Kinesio-Tape is used to

  • Re-educate the neuromuscular system
  • Reduce pain
  • Enhance performance
  • Prevent injury
  • Promote improved circulation and healing

Vibration Therapy

How does it work?
On a WBV machine, the platform you stand on moves very rapidly. This controlled motion is transferred up through your body. All of your body tissues are forced to react to the stimulus of the vibrating platform. Blood flow increases considerably and more oxygen gets circulated throughout your body. Lymphatic drainage improves which aids in detoxification and increased mineral density.

When you position your body on the vibrating platform it determines what tissues are affected. you have complete control over the body part you want to target and how challenging the workout is.

Benefits of WBV
There are numerous benefits of WBV as evidenced by it acceptance in major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centers around the country however we are the only Wellness Center in Brandon to be using it.

  • Trains your equilibrium for improved balance and coordination
  • Increase lymphatic drainage and the release of endorphins
  • Enhances blood flow and oxygenation
  • Improves bone mineral density
  • Lower levels of cortisol, your stress hormone
  • Works and tones you muscles more effectively than conventional exercises
