Therapeutic Ultrasound uses lower frequencies than the more common Diagnostic Ultrasound to view internal organs and unborn children. The sound waves penetrate up to 3 inches into the body vibrating water molecules in the cells, this in effect produces heat. EMS utilizes electricity, it sends a gentle current through the body between two pads. And this causes the muscles to lightly flex and relax over and over again, fatiguing the muscle and producing relaxation. The other effect is on the nerve endings as certain frequencies cause a release of endorphins and enkephalins to dull pain and relax tissue. This therapy is typically utilized to treat muscle tension, inflammation, sprain/strains, gout, and pain syndromes. Contact Alexandria Natural Health Center to learn if therapeutic ultra sound is the right treatment for you.
Functional analysis is an assessment technique utilized by Dr. Larson which looks to optimize breathing and gait efficiency. By analyzing the breathing or gait pattern of a patient, the Doctor determines where to adjust. When the patterns are at their most efficient, the body has most available energy (in the form of ATP) to devote to less important functions of the body, such as filtering/blocking pain signals.
