Woman receiving electrical stimulation therapy Ultrasound Therapy

Therapeutic ultrasound is a form of therapy created by high frequency sound waves.

Ultrasound therapy has three primary benefits: speeding up the healing process from the increase in blood flow; decreasing pain from the reduction of swelling and edema; and the gentle massage of muscles, tendons, and ligaments and reduction of scar tissue.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Small electrical signals applied to specific areas of the body to control pain, increase blood circulation, reduce muscle spasm, relax or stimulate the nervous system, and aid in the healing process. The EMS can also prevent atrophy, maintain or increase range of motion, and re-educate muscles.


The Diathermy uses high frequency energy to directly heat deep tissues to produce a therapeutic response. Some of the physiological effects include increased blood flow; improved oxygenation; decreased inflammation and improved range of motion.

Myo-Fascial Release

Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web. Fascia is densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein, as well as our internal organs. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions.

By utilizing static holds and active motion to unlock fascial restrictions, the goal is to ease pain, increase range of motion, and assist the body back to proper posture.

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a small, hyper-irritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule (‘knot’) in a taut band. The spot is painful on compression and refers pain in a predictable pattern.
