Physiotherapy at Mountain View Chiropractic and Wellness

Healing Therapies Complement Your Care

Dr. Blaine is nationally certified in physiotherapy and offers a variety of physiotherapy services. These therapies complement your chiropractic care and speed your healing. We’ll start with relieving the pain and work up to maintaining the strength and flexibility you’ll achieve.

Ultrasound

Dr. Blaine likes ultrasound therapy for its excellent anti-inflammatory properties. Ultrasound can relieve inflammation deep in the tissue more effectively than other methods. And ultrasound is completely painless.

“Generally, ice only penetrates the tissue about one-eighth of an inch,” says Dr. Blaine. “With ultrasound, we can penetrate an inch to an inch and a half into the tissue to relieve inflammation.”

Electronic Muscle Stimulation

Electronic Muscle Stimulation is a technique used mostly for patients who have relatively minor muscle injury and soreness.

A small device creates electrical impulses that stimulate nerves through small pads attached to the skin. The muscle responds to the stimulated nerve by contracting. In this process, the muscle responds the same way it would respond to a contraction brought on by exercise. The muscle ultimately gets stronger and healthier.

Electrical stimulation is used to decrease pain to the extremities and lower back. Other common uses of muscle stimulation include:

  • Decreasing inflammation
  • Decreasing pain
  • Relaxing or tightening muscles

Cold Laser

Cold laser therapy helps decrease pain and inflammation and assists with healing. The laser is able to target inflammation deep in the joint or tissue. You won’t feel any discomfort while the laser is being used.

Corrective Stretching

Similar to neurokinetic stretching, corrective stretching is assisted stretching that’s done right here in the office. This stretching helps restore movement and function.

Corrective Exercises

Many people have muscular imbalances which are caused by a sedentary lifestyle. But even active people can develop muscular imbalances that can lead to tight/short muscles or weak/inhibited muscles. These imbalances can lead to pain patterns over time, as well as differences in mobility and stability in the muscles of the body and spine. In turn, posture can be greatly affected.

The corrective exercises Dr. Blaine uses aren’t for relieving pain but for restoring function and expanding your range of motion.

Dr. Blaine will tell you that function is the key – restoring flexibility and alignment are important to maintaining your good health. If something isn’t working properly, it will only get worse over time. Increasing strength and flexibility restores function and helps prevent future injuries.
