Acupuncture, simply stated, is a health science that is used to successfully treat both pain and dysfunction in the body. Acupuncture has its roots in China. In fact, most authorities agree the science is between 5,000 and 7,000 years old. Acupuncture therapy did not become known on a national level in the U.S. until 1971 when diplomatic relations between China and America were relaxed.
Graston is an instrument-assisted soft tissue technique that is effective for treating causes of acute and chronic pain, muscle weakness, decreased function and motion.
Electronic Muscle Stimulation or EMS is a therapy that focuses on relaxing hypertonic muscles. This occurs when a current is applied to the muscle belly, which acts to stimulate the muscle, much like the electrical impulses carried from the nerves would. This low level of contraction/stimulation resets the nerves, allowing the muscle to relax. This process also increases blood circulation to the area, which in turn speeds healing and decreases inflammation in the surrounding tissue.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to create small vibrations between the cell membranes in the soft tissue. These vibrations create a source of deep heat in the tissue that allows the tissue to relax. Ultrasound also increases blood circulation in the area being treated, which in turn helps flush the area of inflammation in the involved tissue.
Kinesio Therapeutic Taping is a technique in which strips of tape are applied to muscles or joints to achieve physiologic changes in the joints and/or soft tissue being treated. There are multiple applications of this technique that range from application for lymphatic drainage to structural applications.
