Laser Therapy offers expedited pain relief through a process known as photobiostimulation. Prompted by a dose of deep penetrating photonic energy, your body produces increased amounts of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate), the substance responsible for cellular energy production. The increased levels of ATP lead to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and ultimately, a rate of healing that is three to five times faster than normal. Tissue that is damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of swelling, trauma or inflammation has been shown to respond significantly to laser therapy irradiation. At the cellular level, deep penetrating photons activate a biochemical cascade of events leading to increased DNA/RNA, protein and collagen synthesis and cellular proliferation. The result of these reactions is rapid cellular regeneration, normalization and healing. As laser light energy is highly absorbed by skin and subcutaneous tissue, penetration is key to a successful therapeutic outcome. Longer wavelengths and higher power output result in deeper penetration and higher dosage to the tissue. More powerful therapeutic laser energy dosage levels produce improved clinical outcomes as illustrated in many cases and interventional studies. Low level laser therapy (Classes I-III) does not provide optimal clinical outcomes in most disease and injury conditions, because they cannot produce the deep tissue laser energy dosage necessary without using excessively long treatment times. Class IV lasers have been shown to provide both the wavelength and output power levels necessary to trigger therapeutic cellular metabolic changes.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release, a gentle form of stretching, is a therapeutic treatment that produces a healing effect on the body tissues, eliminating pain and restoring motion. The therapist guides the patient through easy stretches designed to help counteract the effects of trauma, poor posture, and inflammation in the body.


Ultrasound equipment is used to create gentle, soothing heat in specific areas of the body. This is done using high-frequency sound waves emitted by the device.

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical stimulation uses are electrical current to cause a single muscle or muscle group to contract. These induced contractions help strengthen muscles and helps create a healthy blood flow through the affected area.


Cryotherapy involves the use of ice packs and other refrigerants to cool down muscles and other tissue groups. This change in temperature is useful in reducing local metabolism, inflammation, and pain.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia

Manipulation Under Anesthesia, also known as MUA, is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure offered for acute and chronic conditions which include: neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasms, shortened muscles, fibrous adhesions and long-term pain syndromes.

By lightly anesthetizing a patient, once painful adjustments and movements are accomplished quickly and pain free helping to greatly improve or ever restore range of motion.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia is a viable alternative for those patient that are not responding to traditional conservative care or other invasive procedures such as surgery.

Am I a Candidate for MUA?

In general, patient are selected for MUA are those with certain neck, mid-back, low-back or other spinal conditions that have received conservative care for six to eight weeks with limited or no improvement in symptoms or findings.

It may also be appropriate for those patients that still experience pain after undergoing various invasive treatments, such as surgery. Common indications for MUA include neck, middle and lower back pain, chronic muscle pain & inflammation, acute and chronic muscle spasm, chronic fibrositis, nerve entrapment, disc pathology including herniated discs, torticollis and failed back surgery.
