myPictures/drpAdjustment.jpgPulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT) is a new approach to pain management that uses magnets to create pulsing, moving energy. These energy waves could change the way your body copes with pain. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMFT in healing soft-tissue wounds; decreasing inflammation to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion.

Is most often to treat muscle, joint, or bone problems that occur with illnesses such as osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia, or for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis.  People have also used TENS to treat sudden (acute) pain, such as labor pain, and long-lasting (chronic) pain, such as cancer pain.

Ultrasound Therapy

Therapeutic ultrasound has been used by therapists to treat soft tissue injuries for more than 50 years.  The treatment is delivered by a transducer head emitting sound waves through a gel.  These sound waves penetrate the soft tissues of the treated area to speed the healing process.  There are three primary benefits to ultrasound - 1.  Speed up the healing process by increasing blood flow in the treated area; 2. Decrease swelling; 3.  Gently massage muscles, tendons and/or ligaments in the treated area to soften any scar tissue.  Ultrasound therapy can be done either in a clinical setting by a therapist or at home using a portable unit.
