One of the most advanced, breakthrough neurological treatment approaches. Trigenics® is a specific and advanced system that “resets” the nerves within muscles and tendons that control the length and strength of those muscles. This results in muscles that don’t need to be stretched constantly just to keep from feeling achey and tight. The best part is that this new strength and flexibility is permanent, thanks to the reconnection to the brain through Trigenics® procedures. Pain is also immediately decreased since pain perception is neurological as well.
CLEAR MIND q-EEG NEUROFEEDBACK
A drug-free approach for the treatment of various brain related issues. Neurofeedback literally means “brain” and “input”, where the brain is monitored and input is given instantly. Neurofeedback specifically monitors brainwaves, looks for irregularities, then produces a signal that is designed to correct the irregularity and guide the brainwave back into a healthy pattern. With repetition of this process over time, the brain will learn to stay in healthy ranges without the aid of the computer. The result is an improvement in brain regulation, which in turn can reduce or eliminate most neurological symptoms.
TRADITIONAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Our experienced doctors are able to handle most cases from acute pain that has been there for a couple days to chronic complicated issues that have been evident for years. So whether you are looking for traditional chiropractic treatments from skilled physicians or the most advanced treatment options well beyond typical chiropractic care, we are able to help.
The professionals at Traverse City Knee and Shoulder Solutions will develop you a plan complete with some of the most trusted and state-of-the-art treatments available. Take a look below at our complete offering of treatments or visit one of our dedicated treatment explainer pages for more information.
EXERCISE WITH OXYGEN THERAPY
Without sufficient oxygen, our body’s cells are unable to produce the energy they need to sustain life and soon all functions cease. Should our bodies be deprived of oxygen in suboptimal amounts over a long period of time, then we will experience chronic whole body inflammation and an energy shortage. Symptoms that this is happening may include chronic pain, joint aches, physical and mental sluggishness, brain fog and/or wounds and injuries that just won’t heal.
PULSED ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY
Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy, or PEMF, decreases pain and inflammation while encouraging better blood and lymph circulation. PEMF has been found to stimulate the immune system, improve muscular performance, improve sleep and enhance brain function and focus. PEMF gently bathes the body’s cells in a pleasant field of energy that recharges and supports healing of the entire body.
KNEE JOINT TRACTION
Proven gentle traction to the knees helps to decrease pain while increasing joint space and function. Another great therapy for osteoarthritis of the knee.
Just 5 minutes of 4 to 6 pounds of traction is all that’s needed to gently decompress the knee joint and allow the muscles to relax, synovial fluid to be redistributed and the ‘cushion’ to the knee to be restored. Decreased pain and restored function and range of motion is the expected result.
Engineered and made in Germany, this piece of advanced electrical therapy helps nerves heal and regrow quickly by stimulating nerves in two ways, electrically and chemically, unlike any other equipment. Improved function and decreased pain is the result. Especially useful in treating the pain of osteoarthritis and Peripheral Neuropathy, the Hakomed helps restore normal nerve function and brings back normal sensation as it eliminates the burning, pins and needles, stinging and aching pain associated with nerve damage. (Dr. Nevada Lee, MD is featured in the cover article discussing how her practice utilized the HakoMed – PRO ElecDT 2000 System)Rebuilder technology may be effectively used with traditional reusable pads (electrodes), wearable garments (gloves and/or socks) and even a water bath to more completely stimulate nerves within larger or uneven body parts such as hands and feet (and no, electrocution is not a possibility!)
BACK ON TRACK
Spinal decompression therapy has long been accepted in clinical practice for its effectiveness in gentle traction of the low back discs and joints resulting in decreased pain and tension related to arthritis, disc degeneration and related sciatica symptoms. With 21 different treatment protocols at their fingertips, the doctors can choose the setting that is best for your particular condition. Optional heat and vibration makes this therapy a favorite.
Manual myofascial release procedures have become rarely needed in restoring normal range of motion within the muscles and connective tissues of the body.
When necessary, however, our doctors are well trained with decades of experience to perform the necessary procedures to release adhesions and restore normal soft tissue function. Rebuilder technology may be effectively used with traditional reusable pads (electrodes), wearable garments (gloves and/or socks) and even a water bath to more completely stimulate nerves within larger or uneven body parts such as hands and feet (and no, electrocution is not a possibility!)
MR4 LASER & INFARED LIGHT THERAPY
Light Therapy was first introduced by NASA to speed up the healing process in the body. It was discovered that specific frequencies of light had strong anti-inflammatory properties while decreasing pain and swelling very quickly. High quality research studies even suggest Laser Therapy can encourage new blood vessel growth and even new cartilage growth within joints. This 5 to 10 minute therapy, when combined with knee traction, packs a one-two punch when it comes to decreasing pain and inflammation within the knee joints suffering with osteoarthritis
The ‘Rebuilder’ is an advanced electrical stimulation therapy device used for healing nerves. Using a specific waveform and frequency, endorphins are created and circulated throughout the body to decrease pain and induce a feeling of calm while also decreasing pain and inflammation.
