Hydrotherapy is a warm water-type bed with three rotating jets for your neck, mid back, and lower back. Patients can remain completely dry while the jets provide pressurized spray that promotes the relaxation of their achy or tired muscles. As a chiropractic treatment the water is able to manipulate the patients joints, soft tissues, and muscles allowing them to experience relief from many types of ailments.
Through the use of tiny electrical impulses, the body is coaxed into secreting endorphins and other natural pain killers to help relieve pain. These electrical charges can be induced directly into the vicinity of an jury. The electrical waves manage to intersect underneath the surface of the skin, creating a low frequency stimulation that can reduce pain from many types of injuries and ailments. Often described as a “pins and needles” sensation, patients find Interferential Electro-Therapy to be both painless and beneficial to their healing. During treatment the targeted muscles will twitch slightly, then fatigue, and ultimately relax by the end of the session. The relaxing muscles adjacent to the spine are then able to move more freely, causing a decrease in nerve irritation. Interferential Electro-Therapy is a treatment to aid in the relief of pain and the promotion of soft tissue healing.
