Cold laser therapy is also known, at Chiropractic Health Clinic, as low-level laser therapy. Our Omaha chiropractor utilizes cold laser therapy to help speed up the healing process and give our patients the care they deserve. Cold laser therapy at Chiropractic Health Clinic has been shown to effectively treat chronic pain issues, low-back pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, arthritis, TMJ pain, and muscle injuries.
What is cold laser therapy? Cold laser therapy is a treatment the Omaha chiropractor provides that uses a single light source that produces a thermal effect in the body. Studies have suggested cold laser therapy improves the function of damaged neurological tissue while speeding up healing time by decreasing inflammation, improving blood circulation, increasing cellular oxygen for muscle relaxation, and increasing lymphatic flow to decrease swelling.
During cold laser therapy with our Omaha Chiropractor a patient may experience a pulse or warmth sensation in the area being treated. Chiropractic Health Clinic's cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that is safe and effective.
The Omaha chiropractor at Chiropractic Health Clinic is trained in a specialized technique called Flexion/Distraction. The goal of the Omaha chiropractor with this technique is to reduce pressure on the vertebral discs, widen the spinal canal foraminal area, reduce pressure on spinal nerves, and return motion to the spinal joints. At Chiropractic Health Clinic, flexion/distraction has been shown to effectively treat low back pain, disc herniations, sciatica, synovial cysts, facet syndrome, pregnancy pain, and neuralgias.
Flexion/Distraction is a gentle, safe, non-surgical, evidence-based, and doctor-controlled treatment. Each Omaha chiropractic treatment room is equipped with a table that is able to perform flexion/distraction. The Omaha chiropractor at Chiropractic Health Clinic will give you the resources you need to improve your health and quality of life.
The Omaha Chiropractor utilizes neuromuscular reeducation to enhance the effects of the spinal adjustment and to improve posture and segmental/joint function. Neuromuscular reeducation at Chiropractic Health Clinic helps free soft tissue adhesions. These adhesions manifest wherever damage and inflammation have occurred and have limited both strength and range of motion. Adhesions if not taken care of can put undo stress upon your body. When a muscle encounters an adhesion the muscle contracts and prevents any further movement to protect the involved segment or joint. By applying pressure to specific areas of the involved area, the Omaha chiropractor is able to relax the muscle and break adhesions to allow for optimal function and healing.
The Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) uses pelvic blocking in addition to spinal adjusting to optimize the function of the nervous system. The Omaha chiropractor at Chiropractic Health Clinic will perform a series of tests to determine what treatment approach is appropriate for your condition. The Omaha chiropractor uses SOT because it is a specialized, comprehensive, and gentle technique. The name of the technique is based on the relationship between the sacrum (base of the spine) and the occiput (the base of the skull). An important function of the sacrum and occiput is to maintain flow of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) throughout the spine up to the brain and throughout the nervous system.
At Chiropractic Health Clinic, the Omaha chiropractor will use two blocks that will be placed under your pelvis in specific positions and directions. The weight of the patient’s body on the blocks will help reposition the sacroiliac joints for healing and assist the sacral pump in movement of CSF. This adjustment the Omaha chiropractor makes will improve nerve nutrition and remove toxins in the CSF, allowing the nervous system to function at its optimal level and balance the spine.
