Heat Therapy

The more you understand your body and how it functions, the better equipped you'll be at taking care of yourself to achieve optimal health. 2012 at The Back Pain Relief Center Welcomes New Technology to put you on track to better living!

Spinal Incline Decompression Table

Brand New State of the art technology!   Offered now at The Back Pain Relief & Wellness Center:

Allows traction to be applied to the neck, lower back and the entire spine at the same time!

By tractioning the spinal joints fluid is re-absorbed into the cartilage allowing nourishment and re-hydration to occur.

While tractioning the spine, whole body vibration is used to accelerate relaxation of the muscles. As the back muscles relax, more traction can be applied to the spinal joints.

Re-hydrating and nourishing the spinal discs can slow and even reverse the aging process.

You have options! Spinal degeneration does not have to control your life!

While ice therapy is used to reduce swelling, heat therapy is used to relax the muscles and increase circulation. Both kinds of therapy help reduce pain.

Heat therapy is often used in patients who have chronic or long-lasting pain. Heat therapy can involve many kinds of methods, from simple heating pads, wraps, and warm gel packs, to sophisticated techniques, such as therapeutic ultrasound.

Back injuries can create tension and stiffness in the muscles and soft tissues of the lumbar region, or lower back. In many cases, your circulation may be impeded.

The tension in the muscles can sometimes escalate to spasms.

Heat therapy:

  • Dilates the blood vessels of the affected muscles, allowing them to relax and begin healing.
  • Helps lower discomfort by reducing the amount of pain signals going to the brain.
  • Increases the ability of your muscles to easily flex and stretch, thereby decreasing stiffness.

Heat therapy, as well as ice therapy, are normally parts of an overall chiropractic treatment plan and rarely accomplish maximum results without it.

Heat therapy is not used on swollen or bruised tissues, or in patients who have dermatitis, deep vein thrombosis, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, open wounds, and cardiovascular conditions such as hypertension.
