Devices for Chronic Conditions

Besides chiropractic adjustments to treat subluxations, we have invested thousands of dollars on cutting edge devices that treat chronic conditions and relieve our patients from pain without surgery. These devices do not just treat the symptoms – they actually heal the condition at the source by stimulating blood circulation and cell regeneration.

Laser Therapy

Athletes are raving about this device, which speeds healing and recovery time. The device directs visible light to the targeted area, and the light energy passes through the skin. What happens within the body is technical and complicated, but the light heals on the cellular level within the body, increasing blood circulation and tissue regeneration. This leads to decreased inflammation and pain relief.

Therapeutic lasers have been in use for over 25 years with 2000+ published research studies, but without one recorded side effect. The M6 Class IV Therapeutic Laser is the main device that we use for pain reduction, reduced inflammation, increased blood circulation, and faster healing. As nutrients are transported to cell membranes in the targeted areas, the body’s own natural healing abilities kick in, repairing the tissues. MLS stands for “Multi-wave Lock System” because the device uses two wavelengths that allow for deep tissue treatment.

At Natural Foundations, we have used these devices successfully to treat a wide range of painful conditions:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Sciatica and Leg Pain
  • Degenerative, Bulging or Herniated Discs
  • Sprains, Strains, Tendonitis
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other inflammatory conditions like tennis elbow and bursitis
  • Shoulder Pain & Rotator Cuff Conditions, including Frozen Shoulder
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Plantar Fasciitis, Heel and Foot Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Posterior Facet Syndrome

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Using the healing power of magnets, the Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) also works on a cellular level to kick in your body’s natural healing abilities. It does this by increasing blood flow, cell regeneration, and transport and absorption of calcium to the bones and cartilage. All of this healing activity decreases inflammation and pain permanently (unless the area is reinjured).

There have been 40+ years of research in the effectiveness of pulsed electromagnetic fields. It is used most often to treat issues like:

  • Back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain
  • Arthritis
  • Migraine headaches
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Plantar fasciitis

Spinal Decompression

This back pain treatment uses a motorized table to gently pull the vertebrae so that herniated and bulging discs return to their proper placement. This relieves the pressure that these herniations and bulges place on the nerves, resulting in permanent pain relief. Much gentler than traction, spinal decompression is an exciting non-surgical method that has even prevented some patients from needing spinal surgery.

Vibration Therapy

The K-1 Platinum and Whole Body Vibration devices provide the benefits of exercise without any of the constraints that can cause stress to injured parts of the body. Professional sports teams and celebrities now use this technology for therapeutic muscle toning that is healing and rehabilitative.

It stimulates the muscles at a specific frequency, causing them to contract in a reflex, which, in turn, stimulates blood circulation and stretches the tendons and ligaments.

Rapid Release Therapy

Rapid Release Therapy is a high-speed vibration therapy device that relieves soft tissue conditions that affect the muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves. The result is immediate relief from pain and improved range of motion – in a matter of minutes. RRT also prevents the formation of scar tissue, which can seriously impair range of motion over time. It can even be used comfortably on areas with a lot of bone like the elbows, shoulders, ankles, knees, and jaw.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback uses a computer and electrodes to evaluate brain wave activity that can cause neurological problems. The device determines when the brain waves become irregular and alerts the brain through a visual or audio cue, so that the brain automatically returns itself to the normal range. Over time, the brain learns to maintain the regular brain wave patterns.
