Electric Stim Therapy

This therapy is used for pain relief and muscle re-education.  It is often an important component of injury rehabilitation.  For other patients, the therapy is used to relieve chronic pain.

Electric stim therapy builds both muscle tone and relieves pain.

This therapy has also been known to interrupt pain messages transmitted from the nerves to the brain, and/or to increase the production of pain-relieving endorphins.


What Electric Stim Therapy helps:


  • Muscle spasms & pain

  • Help prevent atrophy

  • Build strength in patients with injuries

  • Helpful in keeping muscles active

  • Spinal Joint Stabilization

  • Healing and Pain Control

  • Muscle Re-education


Light Therapy

Benefits to red light therapy:

  1. Promotes wound healing and tissue repair.

  2. Help for the short-term treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.

  3. Stimulates healing of slow-healing wounds.

  4. Reduces psoriasis lesions.

  5. Aids with short-term relief of pain and morning stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis.

  6. Reduces some of the side effects of cancer treatments.

  7. Improves skin complexion and builds collagen to diminish wrinkles.

  8. Helps to mend sun damage.

  9. Helps diminish scars

  10. Relieves pain and inflammation in people with pain in the Achilles tendons.

Dynamic Compression:

Compression devices were once only for the exclusive use of patients with serious muscular and circulatory disorders such as lymphedema, venous insufficiency and P.A.D. Today, Recovery systems are used by sports teams, universities, physical therapists, and professional athletes to improve recovery time and enhance their training.

“Compression garments add external pressure. Blood can easily pool in the extremities, especially in the lower limbs due to gravity,” writes exercise physiologist Ross Hamilton in his guide for recovery.

“The extra compression helps squeeze the blood out of the muscles and back to the lungs and heart. This allows fresh oxygenated blood to replace it.”

Its benefits are said to include:

  • Improved blood circulation

  • Boost lymphatic fluid movement (reduce potential swollen legs/feet)

  • Removal of lactic acid (reduce muscle fatigue)

  • Improved flexibility

  • Recovery stimulation

  • Boost oxygen distribution

Dynatronics Ultra Sound:

How Ultrasound Physical Therapy Works

The ultrasound machine works by sending an electric current through crystals found in the ultrasound probe — also known as the ultrasound wand. The probe vibrates, causing waves to travel through the skin to the body underneath. The waves transfer energy to the tissues to cause the desired effects. Ultrasound can also be focused on tissues deep within your body without affecting other tissues close to the surface.‌

The frequency and intensity of the ultrasound, the duration of the procedure, and the area of its application all determine how ultrasound physical therapy is done.


What are some benefits of ultrasound?

~ reduce pain and inflammation

~ increasing blood flow

~ relaxing muscles and connective tissues

~ reducing pain and muscle spasms.
