Neubie and Neufit Method

The Neubie is the newest name in neuromuscular reeducation. This advanced technology uses a pulsed, direct current (DC) that more closely mimics the body’s electrical signals, as opposed to the traditional use of alternating current (AC). AC, which does offer some soothing and activation effects do occur, is not natural to the body, and therefore has a minimal and short-lived overall effect on pain control and muscle activation. The use of the Neubie’s pulsed direct current, in combination with our manual muscle activation techniques and patient-specific exercises allows for significantly improved pain control, sensory awareness, muscle fiber recruitment, and motor control. We have also had success at reducing symptoms related to various neuropathies. Master reset has been successfully utilized to affect the vagus nerve, reduce sympathetic system input, and reduce global irritability.

Class IV Laser Therapy by Chattanooga

Concentrated red light penetrates 4-6 cm into tissue and affects metabolism at the cellular level through a process called photobiomodulation. Red light is converted into cellular energy, in the form of ATP. This helps restore and accelerate normal cellular processes resulting in faster healing and inflammation reduction. Evidence supports the claim that laser therapy promotes the formation and integration of collagen cells, blood vessel formation, and other tissue healing factors as well as normalizes action potential of nerve cells. The result? It helps the patient feel better in less time.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is the insertion of thin, monofilament needles into soft tissues (skin, muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, scar tissue etc.) or near peripheral nerves and neurovascular bundles. It is commonly used for the management of a variety of neuromusculoskeletal pain syndromes. DN triggers physiologic changes of the vascular, neurological, muscular, and fascial networks resulting in pain relief and restoration of healthy physiology.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM)

IASTM is the use of specialized, beveled, stainless steel tools or cups to manipulate tissue by various compression /distraction techniques. Microtrauma triggers changes at a cellular level including increased fibroblast proliferation, collagen synthesis, and remodeling of unorganized collagen tissue. This results in breakdown of myofascial adhesions, scar tissue, and restrictions in the body.

Mechanical Spinal Traction

Traction is the process of applying a stretching force to the lumbar or cervical spine using a split table and cable system. Distracting the vertebral segments are thought to separate the vertebrae, reduce disc pressure, and increase foraminal area. It is possible that traction stimulates disc and joint repair.
