Spinal Decompression: In the 1990s, biomechanical research at
The Loyola Stritch School of Medicine found decompression to do
three things: Decrease intradiscal pressures, increase the
intervertebral disc space, and increase nerve canal space (foramina).
All of which reduces stress on the vertebral disc, ultimately
increasing the spine's range of motion and decreasing pain.
Cold Laser Therapy: Therapeutic lasers have been used for
healing since the mid-1960s. These cold lasers work by supplying
energy to the body's tissues in the form of “non-thermal photons of
light”. The body is able to absorb this external light energy on a
cellular level and transform it into chemical energy, which the
body uses to accelerate the normal healing process.

Interferential Current Therapy: When you combine two
medium-frequency currents at slightly different cycles per second
“interference” occurs. This interference blocks the transmission of
pain signals to the spinal cord. This interferental stimulation is
concentrated at a point of intersection between the two electrodes,
deep withing the tissues. IFC (Interferential Current Therapy),
modulates current at a high frequency (4000 cycles per second)
whereas TENS modulates current at 125 cycles per second. IFC
reaches greater depths and over a larger volume of tissue than other
forms of electrotherapy. Normally, deep pain is difficult to reach
with traditional modalities. However, IFC penetrates deep
for blocking pain signals and to increase blood flow to the region.
Increasing localized blood flow will carry away edematous fluid and
tissue toxins from the damaged tissue.
IFC, has been used extensively in managing pain, swelling and
inflammation due to soft tissue irritation from trauma or
degenerative changes with less reliance on narcotics. IFC, can be
used for pain associated with several conditions:
Acute / Chronic Back Pain
Degenerative Joint Disease
Strains & Sprains
Shingles (Neuropathic Pain)
Therapeutic Ultrasound: is a modality that has been used by
therapists since the 1940s. Therapeutic ultrasound sound waves
operate at 800 – 3000 cycles per second. The sound waves that
pass through the skin cause a vibration or cavitation of the local
tissues. This vibration or cavitation causes deep heating to the local
tissues even though usually no heat sensation is felt by the patient.
The overall effects are increases in tissue relaxation, reduced local
swelling, and inflammation.
