Arthrostim, and Cold Laser Therapy
Treatment for Acute Pain
Chiropractic adjustments help stimulate the body to heal
itself. Traditionally, chiropractors and physicians have
used single high-energy thrusting and pulling movements to adjust
areas of the body. The adjustments set a series of events
into motion. The adjustments produce precise movements which
stimulate 'neural receptors' in an area. These receptors, in
turn, produce nerve
impulses which relay crucial information to the brain. The
brain depends on this 'neurological feedback stream' to update its
awareness about an area. Once the brain evaluates the changes
prompted by the adjustment, it issues self-correcting commands to
systems, to bring about healing changes. Recently, new ways
of producing this important neurological feedback stream have been
developed. The ArthroStim Instrument is one of the most
effective and comfortable tools for creating this valuable input
in an area. The term cold laser refers to the use of low-intensity
or low levels of laser light. Proponents claim that cold laser
therapy can treat soft tissue injury, chronic pain, and wound
healing. The damaged cells stimulated by the laser produce more
proteins and anti-inflammatory chemicals to promote healing.

Many people take for granted their ability to maintain their balance; however, for those individuals who have difficulty with balance, tasks such as walking or even standing upright can be challenging, if not impossible. Loss of balance can result from a number of factors; but is most commonly related to either an inner ear or vestibular system disorder. Determining the cause of your imbalance is an important step before beginning therapy, since some conditions may be more serious or require additional treatment. Balance therapy incorporates various exercises and muscle strengthening techniques to reduce the severity of balance problems and helps patients compensate for their disorder. Through balance therapy, individuals regain a sense of balance, increase their stability, and become more confident. Contact Med Globe today to learn more.
Physical therapy is a form of treatment to improve motor skills, balance, coordination, strength, and endurance. Individuals in every age group may require physical therapy for a variety of reasons, whether they are recovering from an injury or surgery or need treatment for a developmental disorder.

Stress tests are often performed on individuals who are at risk for or show symptoms of coronary artery diseases. They may also be administered to individuals who may have serious irregular heartbeats or unexplained fatigue and shortness of breath. During a typical stress test, a patient's heart rate and blood pressure will be recorded while at rest. Then, after being connected to an electrocardiogram (EKG) machine by sticky electrodes attached to their shoulders, chest, and hips, the patient begins to exercise on a treadmill or stationary bicycle. During this exercise, the EKG monitor records the electrical activity of different portions of the heart. Any significant changes in heart rate, blood pressure, or the patient's physical appearance will be noted and used to diagnose a problem, if one exists.
