Treatment Modalities at Cosh Chiropractic Care & Wellness Center
Cosh Chiropractic Care & Wellness Center in Trinity County offers a variety of treatment modalities that help patients deal with pain, inflammation, and other symptoms due to injuries and chronic health conditions. Our goal is to provide gentle adjustments and corrective care to meet the needs of every patient. If you are considering chiropractic care, these are some of the treatment options available.
Heat therapy is a technique used to relax your muscles. Heat encourages the flow of blood to the area, which can reduce pain after an injury or because of a chronic condition. Our practitioners will use various methods to apply heat, including heating pads, heated wraps, and therapeutic ultrasound machines. Heat therapy is often used to address muscle tension in the lower back and can be used alongside cold therapy and other treatment modalities for optimal relief.
Ice therapy also reduces pain and inflammation, but it often needs to be applied quickly after the injury occurs to reduce swelling. This is because ice can constrict the veins, reducing the flow of blood to the area. This provides a numbing sensation until you remove the cold. Our chiropractors may use ice packs, cold massage, and cryotherapy to apply cold. This technique may be used to treat pain affecting the tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Ice therapy is often used to treat back and neck injuries as well.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Our team offers electrical muscle stimulation, or E-Stim, a pain relief technique used to treat various health conditions, including arthritis, joint pain, tendonitis, scoliosis, sports injuries, and more. Electrical muscle stimulation uses electrodes to stimulate a muscle contraction at the site of an injury. This non-invasive procedure stimulates the muscles to improve strength and healing at the site of an injury. This modality is often offered with Heat to improve blood circulation within the affected muscle and to relieve muscle spasm and tension.
Our chiropractors can set you up with a home TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit to contract and relax tight or spasming muscles. The machine uses electrodes placed on the skin to send electrical impulses throughout the body. TENS units can help to relieve pain in the limbs, hips, and upper to lower back. This is a popular option for those who want to avoid invasive treatments and pain medications while being able to have pain relief at home.
