RAYMORE, PECULIAR, AND BELTON PHYSICAL THERAPY:
We offer a state of the art spinal decompression table sponsored by Ergo Flex. During treatment, you lie comfortably on your back while the equipment/technology does all of the work. The table has over 20 different protocols that can be customized to your condition. Treatment is comfortable and most of our patients close their eyes and get a quick power nap while they are doing their treatment.
The comfortable pulling forces in spinal decompression helps relieve pressure on the discs and nerves in your spine. This can provide immediate relief of low back pain and have a positive lasting impact on chronic low back pain. Another added benefit of spinal decompression is that it improves blood flow to the injured areas in your back which promotes healing of those injured areas.
Our patients look forward to knee decompression. The relief is immediate! Treatment time is roughly 5-10 minutes and requires no effort from the patient. Our equipment offers several protocols which match up with each knee condition we see in our office. Sit back, relax, grab yourself a coffee and enjoy the benefits of knee decompression by Ergo Flex.
INTERFERENTIAL ELECTRO-THERAPY (IFC)
Along with getting chiropractic adjustments, IFC treatment is one of our patient’s favorites. In fact, it goes well with chiropractic care, as it relaxes your muscles before adjustments.
IFC is great for muscle spasms, because it increases blood circulation to and from the area of muscle spasm. IFC is also great in relieving pain because it naturally turns on your body’s pain-relieving centers. Whether it is neck pain, low back pain, wrist pain, elbow pain, knee pain, ankle pain, you get the idea; IFC is a pain reliever.
IFC is also great for any type of injury. Whether your son/daughter injured themselves playing soccer, or you strained your low back pulling weeds out in the front yard, IFC can help speed up the healing process.
The way it works is by sending tiny bursts of low-frequency stimulation to your area of concern. Like mentioned before, it helps with the following:
- Reduces pain
- Relieves muscle spasms
- Speeds up healing process
- Restores proper muscle/joint movement
INTERSEGMENTAL TRACTION THERAPY (IST)
Our patients find IST to be very relaxing. The way it works is that you, the patient, lie on your back on the IST table. The table features rollers that move up and down your back muscles and help relieve tension. The IST therapy also helps stretch the spinal joints which helps relieve pain.
One of the added benefits of the motion of the table is an increase in fluid movement to the discs of the spine. Since discs in between your vertebrae have a poor blood supply, they rely on the nutrients in fluid. The increased segmental motion provided by IST therapy, increases fluid movement to the discs which can help prevent disc degeneration.
In addition to the discs of the spine, there are also spinal joints which can degenerate when there is lack of motion to these joints. IST therapy helps restore movement to your fixated joints, which can help prevent degeneration in these joints.
In the end, you will love how you feel after your Belton physical therapy treatment!
