COLD LASER THERAPY

Researchers have discovered that certain low-level light frequencies can have positive effects on the body. The benefits can range from reducing inflammation to pain management to scar tissue reduction. When many people think of lasers, they envision a powerful beam of light capable of cutting through steel. Its ability to heal comes from the light it emits, not its intensity. Also, these "cold" lasers rely on a narrow frequency that is not only safe for the human body but can also be highly therapeutic. A few of the beneficial applications of cold laser therapy include:

  • Wound healing
  • Inflammation reduction 
  • Pain management
  • Cell regeneration
  • Scar tissue reduction

ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION

EMS or electrical muscle stimulation is a type of electrotherapy using special types of electric current to stimulate specific muscles. Low levels of electrical current are delivered to specific muscle groups in the body via adhesive electrodes. There are many different types of EMS therapies that can accomplish a wide range of goals such as muscle strengthening, muscle spasm reduction, pain relief inflammation reduction, and increasing cellular metabolism.  

ULTRASOUND

Moms are familiar with the concept of an ultrasound. Instead of using it to monitor the progress of a fetus, we use it to treat a variety of soft tissue injuries. However, the basic concept is the same. Using a rounded headed probe, the ultrasound uses high-frequency inaudible sound waves that produce a warm feeling below the surface of your skin. These high-frequency sound waves are directed to soft tissues and joints. The rise in temperature increases blood flow to the region, relaxes muscle spasms, increases metabolism, and promotes your body’s healing response. Think of ultrasound as a form of deep tissue micro-massage.   

THERAPEUTIC EXERCISES

Therapeutic exercise can focus on specific areas of the body or can be utilized to achieve a broader treatment goal such as improving strength or balance and restoration of movement. This is one of the least invasive methods of addressing pain. Our team can design a therapeutic exercise program that will have you feeling better, and moving better, without relying on surgery or drugs.

WHAT TO EXPECT

One of the first questions a patient asks when we suggest EMS or spinal decompression as a treatment option is, "will it hurt?". While certain treatments may produce a strange sensation, pain is never a part of what we do. In order to better prepare you for what to expect with some of the new technologies we employ to relieve discomfort, Barr Chiropractic S.C. has provided some information about some of our more common treatment programs. If you have questions that aren't answered here, feel free to contact us.

1ST VISIT

When you arrive, our front desk staff will receive your new patient paperwork, and take you on an office tour. Once this is done, we will perform a consultation to gather additional information about your overall health. 

Dr. Barr will perform a detailed examination, and determine if X-rays are needed. X-rays are performed on site. If your condition allows, your first adjustment and therapies will be done. 

Please allow 60-90 minutes for this visit. 

2ND VISIT

On your second visit you'll receive the finding of the report from your first visit. Dr. Barr will discuss your treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have on chiropractic care. 

During this visit, we will discuss what your insurance covers and what your expected out of pocket expenses will be. 


Please allow 60-90 minutes for this visit. 

ELECTRIC MUSCLE STIMULATION

Initially, you may experience a slight tingling sensation. That is because the electrical impulses generated by Electric Muscle Stimulation are mimicking the signals that the central nervous system normally produces causing the muscles to contract. As your body processes this muscle excitation, the intensity of your 10-20 minute treatment may be increased slightly to achieve maximum effectiveness. 

ULTRASOUND

While there is no discomfort associated with ultrasound, the amount of time that your treatment requires can vary. Where scar tissue is present, the session may last significantly longer though usual treatment takes about 3 - 5 minutes. During treatment, the ultrasound wand or probe is in constant motion, moving across your skin. The sensation normally isn't unpleasant. 

Ultrasound can also be helpful at diagnosing minor fractures that may not be obvious on X-ray. Small or hairline fractures may produce pain as sound waves are trapped between the two parts of the break. Please be advised that we avoid using ultrasound where there are malignancies, metal implants below the area treated, acute infection, vascular abnormalities and on the abdomen of pregnant women.  

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

At first glance, spinal decompression may look imposing. However, when performed correctly, any discomfort is minimal compared to the relief it can provide. In order to properly heal the injured area, it must be alternately distracted and relaxed at specific intervals. The process allows us to isolate each disc independently of one another and focus attention where needed. This is accomplished through proper positioning of the patient and the spinal decompression table.
