INTERSEGMENTAL TRACTION and STABILIZER:
METTLER AUTOTHERM SHORTWAVE DIATHERMY:
Diathermy can reach areas as deep as two inches beneath the skin’s surface. Diathermy does not apply heat directly to the body. Instead, the waves generated by the machine allow the body to generate heat from within the targeted tissue.
CHATANOOGA INTELECT LEGEND ULTRASOUND:
Intelect® is a name the clinical rehabilitation community relies on. Intelect Legend Ultrasound is well known for their exceptional clinical performance. Ultrasonic therapy increases the temperature of tissues at a cellular level, increasing circulation and accelerating the recovery process. Extremely effective at reducing pain and inflammation of connective tissues in joints such as the knee, shoulder, hips and back, it supplies deep penetrating sound waves directly to the source of the pain to immediately soothe and relax it away. Clinical testing has shown ultrasonic therapy is one of the most efficient, non-invasive, heat therapies for collagen-based tissues approved for medical use, providing dramatic increases in the rate of cellular repair, blood oxygen circulation, and beneficial pain relief without dangerous side-effects.
INSTRUMENT-ASSISTED ADJUSTMENT TECHNIQUES:
The instruments that we use here at Fluid Chiropractic allow us to work on Acute, pediatric and elderly patients with safety and comfort.
In addition, these instruments allow us to speed up the healing process, reset the joints/ joint receptors / muscles / fascia and hold the changes longer. They can be applied to any aspect of the musculo-skeletal system safely. Every aspect of this treatment protocol and adjustable for your comfort level.
RADIAL SHOCKWAVE THERAPY (ESWT):
Radial Shockwave Therapy, a form of Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), is a noninvasive treatment that involves the delivery of shock waves to reduce pain, increase range of motion, induce re-vascularization, stimulate cellular regeneration and repair tendon,muscle and bone.
Our equipment is state of the art and shockwave therapy is the latest in the treatment of musculo-skeletal disorders in the field of orthopedics and rehabilitation medicine.
It is indicated in the treatment of plantar fascitiitis, heel spurs, patellar tendonitis, lateral epicondylitis ( tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), thumb arthritis, shoulder tendonitis, spasticity (MS, cerebral palso), chronic inflammation, bursitis, shin splints, morton's neuroma and osteoarthritis.
Treatment depends on the chronicity, tissues involved and location. Generally the visits are once every 4 days for chronic conditions and once every 6-7 days for acute conditions. Six to eight treatments are required and take about 5 minutes.
Side effects may include bruising, swelling and redness. Most patients experience mild pain during the treatment and experience benefits immediately. This is a very popular therapy.
We have advanced KinesioTaping International Training. We only use the best tape, and that is KinesioTape. It is 100% cotton with acrylic glue. No latex, no elastic, no chemicals. KinesioTape can be used for muscle pain, tendonitis, sprains, lymph, swelling, bruising, fascia, scar tissue and nerves. It is phenomenal for musculo-skeletal conditions. It can be worn in the water 45 minutes after taping and will stay on 5-7 days. The tape is thinner than skin and attaches to skin cells, therefore you will find it very comfortable, supportive and speeds uphealing while you continue your regular sport, activity or daily task.
RJL BIO-IMPEDANCE ANALYSIS FOR BODY COMPOSITION:
RJL Systems’ technological advances are the benchmark, or “gold-standard”, of the BIA instrument industry.
RJL's Bio-Impedance Analysis is allows us to calculate your body composition. The test is non-invasive, comfortable and will take approximately 5 minutes to perform. RJL's BIA measures: Weight and BMI, Fat and Fat Mass Index (FMI), Fat-Free Mass (FFM) and FFM Index, Lean Dry Mass (LDM),Total Body Water (TBW), Intra-Cellular Water (ICW), Extra-Cellular Water (ECW), Bone Mineral Content (BMC), Lean Soft Tissue (LST), Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM).
RJL’s Quantum technology for body composition assessment is approved by the FDA as a Class 2 Medical Device, and is cited in thousands of international research studies, abstracts and peer reviewed articles. Publications featuring studies using RJL technologies include The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Journal of Applied Physiology, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Health Promotion, Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, Journal of Exercise Physiology, and the Journal of Renal Nutrition.
