Additional Wellness Therapies

Our primary goal is your wellness. All the services we offer help support our vision of changing the community from a disease care model to a health care model and save thousands of lives in the process.

 Diagnostic and Therapeutic Tools (Equipment)
At ProActive Healthcare we take a hands-on approach to chiropractic care and physical therapy with every patient we treat, which includes manual and instrument-based chiropractic adjustments, along with sports medicine rehabilitation and massage therapy. To augment our manual efforts we use a combination of different diagnostic and therapeutic tools that address patients’ individual conditions and needs.

Insight Subluxation Station Spinal Scan

The Insight Subluxation Station scans the nerves exiting both sides of your spine to determine any hypo or hyperactivity at each level, indicating a spinal subluxation. The identification and correction of these subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, is the primary goal of effective chiropractic care.

 The 24 pairs of spinal nerves exiting your spine carry the information from your brain to your body, controlling every organ, tissue and cell of your body. A spinal subluxation will irritate and potentially choke off the vital information that nerves are communicating between your brain and organs, tissues, and cells.

Therapeutic Technology 

Laser Therapy 

Cold Laser Therapy uses a light wave laser to produce a flow of energy used by the human body to stop pain, speed healing, and improve an array of conditions. 

Conditions commonly helped by cold laser include:

  •  Sprains 
  • Strains 
  • Chronic Pain 
  • Neck Pain
  • Joint Pain 
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 
  • Arthritis
  • Foot Pain 
  • Diabetic Neuropathies 
  • Wounds 
  • Elbow Pain
  • Knee Pain 
  • TMJ 
  • Adhesions 
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Spider Veins

The laser beam is calibrated to penetrate up to 2 inches past the surface of the skin, so it can improve skin and scar appearance as well as treat deep ligaments, muscles and bones. Treating muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which cross every joint of the body, is critical to the speed and quality of recovery from injuries and chronic conditions. Laser therapy is one of the many tools we use to address these critical
structures.

Cold Laser Therapy’s benefits include:

  • Building new tissue for healing
  • Improving nerve conduction
  • Reducing pain and swelling
  • Speeding fracture and wound
    healing
  • Increasing tissue oxygenation

Electrical Muscle Stimulation EMS

Electrotherapy uses electrical currents to treat injured muscle tissue. Because muscles, tendons and ligaments cross every joint of the body, if treatment of injuries and chronic conditions fails to treat these structures, the speed and quality of recovery may be inhibited. Electrotherapy (EMS) is one of the many tools we use to support the healthy functioning of these critical structures. Its benefits include:

  • Improving healing time
  • Reducing Pain
  • Increasing circulation
  • Decreasing swelling

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Ultrasonic diathermy uses sound waves to cause vibration deep within injured soft tissues. It has been shown to increase tissue relaxation, local blood flow, and scar tissue breakdown. The effect of the increase in local blood flow can be used to help reduce local swelling and chronic inflammation, and according to some studies, promote bone fracture healing.

Mechanical Traction

Our mechanical distraction tables and chairs are particularly useful for individuals who are suffering from stiff back joints and tense muscles. The roller break up stiff tissue damage along the spine while relaxing like a heated massage.. It is a smooth, efficient distraction table and chair used for adjusting the full spine by distraction the neck, mid, and lower back and manipulating specific segments into their
ranges of motion.

Ear Candling

An eastern medicine therapy to clean out the ears and help with infections and hearing loss.

Accupuncture

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Chair
Massage

Massage therapy can help relieve a variety of medical conditions by manipulating the soft tissues in your body. This can reduce stress, increase relaxation and improve posture.

Integrator 

 On the occasion a patient prefers to not be treated by or may not respond to
traditional chiropractic
adjustments, the Activator is the ideal alternative. It produces an effective
level of force with extremely
high acceleration, but only a gentle tapping sensation is experienced by the
patient. 

 Customized exercises with easy to follow handouts 

 We have customized exercise programs that incorporate theraballs, therabands,
weight, and exercise
balls.  We have exercises for most common injuries and conditions along
with wellness exercise dvd and
mp3 players.
