Cold Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy, or cold laser, is a well-established therapy for pain relief and rehabilitation of numerous injuries. The laser delivers photonic (light) energy to the cell. This energy is absorbed by the cell and causes an increase in the production of ATP. The increased levels of the energy molecule allows for the normalization of the cell function, pain relief, and healing. The cells are also now able to communicate with one another: damaged cells absorb energy from the laser and create new enzymes that allow for the healing and relief of pain; damaged adjacent cells are affected by the enzymes, and then, in turn, produce more of the same bio-chemical reaction which lets those cells begin to normalize and relieve pain as well.
Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract by placing electrodes on the skin. The results of the electrical impulses are: decreased muscle tightness, pain and swelling and at the same time causing an increase in the capacity of the injured tissue to heal by increasing blood flow. The current can be altered allowing this modality to activate muscles so as to strengthen the targeted tissue.
Intersegmental Traction Table
Intersegmental traction tables are a way to help increase mobility and gently stretch spinal joints. This therapeutic modality also helps to facilitate muscle relaxation and reduction of muscle spasms. The table is equipped with roller-type cams beneath the surface of the table creating a rolling contact that moves up and down the muscles on either side of the spine.
Therapeutic Ultrasound is a treatment modality that utilizes high or low frequency sound waves. These sound waves are transmitted to the adjacent tissue and vasculature. They penetrate the muscles to cause deep tissue/muscle warming. This stimulates relaxation of the tissue and therefore is useful in treating muscle tightness and spasms. The warming effect of the sound waves also cause vessel vasodilatation and increase circulation to the area that assists in healing. The frequency on the machine to use waves that will decrease inflammation.
What our patients are saying
“I always feel so much better when I leave Finan Chiropractic!! My body feels better from being adjusted and my heart feels better from the friendly people in the office. I would recommend to everyone!”
“The whole process was super easy. Filling out the forms and scheduling the appointment was a breeze. And Dr. Nate Backer was incredible. He is a straight shooter and does not try to hide anything from you. He focuses on fixing the problem, not the symptoms. Very personable and knowledgeable. Felt so much better after leaving the office. He assigned me stretches I could do at home to help relieve some of my pain and they are working great. Overall, a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend!”
“I have been a patient since 2014 and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Finan. She is attentive and extremely knowledgeable. I had previously quit seeing a chiropractor because my chronic pain was not being resolved – until I saw her! I recently began seeing Dr. Nate as well and have received nothing but excellent care as well. The office staff is so friendly and helpful – go, go, go! You won’t regret it.”
“Josh helped me recover from two running injuries this year. I was able to run a pain free half marathon three weeks ago, and I look forward to a healthy running year in 2017 thanks to the excellent care I received.”
“He (Dr. Backer) was very knowledgeable and helpful in asking great questions to try to figure out root causes of symptoms vs jumping straight into adjustments and such. He provided a lot of good information and took the time to discuss preventative habits with me such as stretching, sleeping positions, etc that may help prevent future symptoms. He was very skilled in adjusting and relieving tension I immediately felt an increase in mobility and decreased tension. Looking forward to my next appointment!”
“Dr. Finan is amazing. The rest of the staff is too. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. They are always on time. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes in the year I’ve been going there. Dr. Finan has helped my back and ailments in such a short time. I feel great! Thank you!”
