What Is Extension-Compression Traction?

What Is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio Taping is a therapy that uses soft tape to support joints and to aid muscles in recovering from injury. The tape helps a patient’s joints stay in the correct position while muscles get stronger and muscle memory returns. This is a very productive form of treatment following joint replacement or joint injuries.
What Is Neuro-Muscular Re-Education?

What is Nutritional Response Testing?
This therapy looks at what nutrients your body has and its deficiencies, and then helps you adjust your diet to make sure that your body has everything it needs to heal. The evaluation focuses on reflex reaction to measure nutritional need. Needle testing also is used to save time. The results allow patients to see which supplements work with their body without needlessly increasing costs.
What is Vibration Technique?
Vibration Technique is a massage technique that focuses on creating vibration, usually along the spine. The technique is perfect for releasing muscle tension and to help the patient relax. With the muscles relaxed, spinal adjustments are easier. When used on muscle mass away from the spine, vibration therapy helps increase circulation and serves to activate even the smallest muscle fibers, which help muscle injuries recover faster.
What is Wobble Therapy?
Wobble Therapy is a form of physical treatment for lumbar pain. Patients do a series of exercises that exaggerate the movement of the spine so that vertebrae naturally realign. The treatment is similar to using a therapy ball.
