Our spinal program continues to be a success with our patients. To speed recovery for these patients, Bodywise has added a targeted spinal decompression unit to the clinic. This is a machine that decompresses the intervertebral space, relieving pressure to the vertebral structures and providing a negative pressure to the disc, allowing reduction of a disc bulge or herniation. This machine allows us to target the specific vertebrae level (either cervical or lumbar) involved with the patient's problem. For example, with 10-15 degrees of traction, we are able to target specifically the L5 S1 disc in order to reduce a disc bulge, treat sciatica, relieve muscle spasm, help with facet issues, or improve disc herniation pain.

 

This treatment has been approved by the FDA and is proven to help with acute and chronic spinal conditions. In addition to being able to treat all the lumbar vertebrae specifically, we can also target specific cervical levels using this machine. This specific targeting of spinal conditions is the main advantage over traditional traction and the current trend in treatment.

Bodywise is now certified to provide dry needling. Needling is a treatment that uses thin filament like needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate the underlying tissue It is used in the management of  nerve pain, muscle tightness and joint movement issues. Dry needling is an effective treatment for many types of long lasting pain without many side effects.  Although there is some minor discomfort, it is usually followed by a reduction of pain and improvement in function. This service is covered by most insurances but is also offered on a fee for service basis.

Bodywise is proud to provide an instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique called Graston.  The Graston technique enables physical therapists to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as improve joint range of motion.

 

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization is accepted nationwide by elite athletes and everyday patients, as one of the most effective treatments for rehabilitation and range of motion maintenance, especially when combined with other treatment modalities such as exercise.

When appropriate, dramatic results can be seen with a reduction of pain during motion.  Avoid the risk associated with high velocity manipulation and try a softer safer approach.
