Electrotherapies Interference current electrotherapy is the use of low frequency electrical currents that have a precise physiological action on the tissues. Using 2 or 4 electrodes, the intensity and frequency of the current will allow to: - reduce pain (analgesic effect) - increase blood circulation - increase lymphatic circulation - stimulate or relax the muscles in spasms There is also the EMS Electrical Muscle Stim also called Russian Stim, which serves to stimulate and activate the muscles.
Ultrasound therapy When they come in contact with an inflammation (bursitis or tendonitis, for example), sound waves cause a vibration similar to a micro-massage. They produce a sensation of heat and stimulate circulation, which helps to accelerate healing and reduces inflammation..

Kinesiotaping can be used alone or in addition to chiropractic treatment. This makes it possible to prolong the benefits of the treatment.

I couldn't exercise nor swim, even walking was becoming difficult. These problems persisted for 4 years.After 1 week of chiropractic care, my jaw problem was gone, my neck pain and headaches were greatly reduced. My lower backpain was gone.Now I exercise , run , do weight training, and my favorite is swimming.I recommand chiropractic care to everyone, I have brought my kids in for care as well.
Chronic aches and pains for 20 years plus... I suffered from recurrent headaches, pains in neck, shoulders, back and indigestion.
