Discover the Healing Power of Laser Therapy

wave_cutawayYou have no doubt been hearing a lot about the use of laser light in medical settings, whether for hair removal, dermatology, dental care or even eye surgery. You may not be aware however, that the effects of red light on cellular function have been known since 1880.

Recent research has shown that these effects can be profound include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling. Low-level or “cold” laser uses specific wavelengths of light (red and infrared) to create therapeutic effects. This energy is used by the cells to restore normal function. This process helps the cells actually heal from the inside out.

 Effects of Laser

  • Increased metabolic activity. More energy at the cellular level.
  • Anti-inflammation. Laser light reduces swelling and provides enhanced joint mobility.
  • Stimulates Nerve Function. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection.
  • Faster Wound Healing. Laser stimulates fibroblast production and accelerates synthesis of damaged tissue.
  • Reduces Scar formation. Laser decreases scar formation following tissue damage from cuts, burns and even surgery.

Treatments are safe and are easily performed in our office. Ask Dr. Duggar if laser therapy would be beneficial for you

Neurostructural Integration Technique – Advanced Soft Tissue Healing

NSTIn addition to Chiropractic adjustments, which primarily addresses spinal nerves and joints, our patients also receive additional supportive techniques that address the muscles and tendons.

Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) is considered by many to be the world’s leading “soft-tissue” technique in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain removal and rejuvenation.

NST is a remarkably effective technique that initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body. The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well being.

Typically the response to NST is most often profoundly effective, and more than seldom, miraculous.

NST is essentially a soft tissue osteopathic-style therapy, designed to remove pain, physiological dysfunction and even psychological imbalances, by restoring the structural integrity of the body.

NST only takes 5 – 10 minutes to do and works amazingly well as part of a comprehensive chiropractic adjustment visit.

 

Neural Therapy – Natural Pain Management

shutterstock_55683673When we suffer an injury or trauma, our bodies are triggered to engage in a process of repair. That process is very complex and requires multiple systems to work together harmoniously.  If
this process is interfered with or impeded in any way, we may be left with residual pain and imbalance.  Dr. Huenke in Germany in the 1920’s described these as “interference fields” and pioneered a technique that he called “neural therapy”, wherein he would inject a small amount of homeopathic remedy into or around the area of pain and injury. This homeopathic remedy would then trigger the body to complete the healing process and improve function.

Neural Therapy is one of the most advanced and effective of all the holistic pain management modalities.  Because it is similar in some respects to acupuncture, some practitioners have coined the term “biopuncture” but there are some differences. With acupuncture there is no “injection” of a substance, just the insertion of a small needle into the skin at a specific point called an acupoint.  With Neural Therapy we are not limited to only inject into acupoints but can treat in virtually any area of the body.

Some of the most successfully treated conditions are: headaches, whiplash syndrome, painful scars, menstrual pain, endometriosis, joint and muscular rheumatism and trigger points, reflex dystrophy, arthritis, all forms of neuralgias (post-herpetic, shingles and trigeminal), restless leg syndrome, and TMJ syndrome.
