Therapies

We offer many types of therapy here including Medical treatment, Chiropractic treatment, Acupuncture treatment, exercise rehabilitation, traditional modalities, trigger point injections, viscosupplementation injections to help restore knee cartilage, and more. Check out our services above for a more comprehensive explanation of each 

 

We also offer these brand new state-of-the-art treatments: 

FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY REHAB THERAPY™ 

Functional Neurology Rehab Therapy™ is a treatment system is based on the neurological principle of “neuroplasticity”. That means the brain can and does “re-wire itself”, sometimes badly, to compensate for injury, stress, etc. Correcting or normalizing these abnormal neurological patterns through treatment can IMMEDIATELY reduce pain, increase strength, muscular power, and endurance. Movement in an injured area can be increased IMMEDIATELY IN ONLY 1-2 VISITS in most cases. (3) (4)*

 

MEGA CLASS IV LASER THERAPY™ 

We use Southern California's only Mega Class IV Laser Therapy (TM). Most Class IV Lasers are cold lasers, generting no tissue heat. Southern California's only Mega Class IV Laser is a Hot Laser delivers deep, penetrating, red photonic (light) energy to bring about profound physiological changes deep in the tissue where it is used. ATP (adenosine-triphosphate) production is increased, inflammation and pain reduced, and circulation is increased at the site of the pain. These changes in cellular chemistry are triggered by our Mega Class IV Laser Therapy (TM) making it a true healing modality. During the treatment the patient will feel a deep soothing warmth. This pleasant sensation reassures the patient that the Laser is stimulating cellular activity deep in tthe tissue. 

Mega Class IV Laser Therapy (TM) has the following benefits: 
Fast Reduction of Pain 
Improved Nerve Function 
Reduction of Muscle Spasms 
Speeding of Tissue Repair 
Development of Muscle Tissue and Collagen 
Reduction of Inflammation Swelling and Scar Tissue Formation 
Immediate Pain Reduction

MEGA PULSED ELECTRO-MAGNETIC FIELD THERAPY (PEMF)™ 

Southern California’s Only Mega Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) ™ delivers beneficial, health-enhancing pulsing electromagnetic fields (EMFs and frequencies) to all the cells deep in every tissue where it is applied. Even Low-frequency PEMFs of the weakest strengths have been proven to pass right through the body, penetrating every cell, tissue, organ and even bone without being absorbed or altered. As they pass through, they stimulate many of the electrical and chemical processes deep within the cells and tissues themselves. PEMF improves impaired cellular chemistry and thus the functioning of cells (normalizes their function) – which in turn, improves health. (5) (6) *
