Therapeutic spinal traction uses manually or mechanically created forces to stretch and mobilize the spine. Traction may alleviate back or neck pain by stretching tight spinal muscles that result from spasm and widen intervertebral foramen to relieve nerve root impingement.
The goal of traction is to reduce pain to assist the patient to become more functional. Therapy should be relaxing – not cause additional or new pain.
Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.
The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.
Neuromuscular Reeducationsm is a “stand-alone” hands-on technique/approach to the evaluation and functional treatment of 90+% of the soft tissue injuries.
It involves freeing the adhesion and re-educating the muscle. This is accomplished by:
- working each involved joint through the fullest possible range of motion during each session after the Neuromuscular work and then
- sending a patient back to the activity that has been causing him or her the problem. As soon as possible to demonstrate that the problem has been resolved.
A.R.T. is most commonly used to treat conditions related to adhesions or scar tissue in overused muscles. Specific conditions that can be treated with ART include headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome other peripheral nerve entrapments, shin splints, sciatica, TMJ, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis and other soft tissue inflammatory disorders of the joints.
The goal of ART is to restore the smooth movement of tissues and to release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels
When applied to the skin, heat enlarges blood vessels below the surface and relaxes muscle tissue. Heat therapy can calm irritated tissues and increase circulation to help speed the healing process.
Ice therapy is often used to reduce swelling and pain caused by acute injuries or flare-ups of chronic condition. Properly applied ice reduces the temperature of the tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin. This cooling numbs painful areas constricts blood vessels and help relax muscle spasms.
