Physical Therapy

Heat, Ice, Electric Muscle Stimulation, Cold Laser and Ultrasound

Vital Wellness Center Laser TherapyAll “Therapeutic Modalities” performed in the Center have been shown to decrease the time it takes for your body to heal. Really, these procedures are borrowed from other types of treatments like Physical Therapy and Orthopedics. By themselves they can’t reduce or eliminate misalignment or change poor movement patterns so we will use them to help alleviate pain, muscle spasm and inflammation, as well as help restore normal circulation to the healing area.

 

Stretching and Range of Motion Exercises

At first you’ll learn how to perform these exercises safely with the help of our trained Chiropractic Assistant staff. Later we’ll show you how you can help yourself get better faster by doing some simple exercises at home.
