Physiotherapy includes a variety of treatment modalities that are aimed at reducing inflammation and pain as well as improving flexibility and strength. These treatment modalities are a perfect complement to chiropractic care as well as acupuncture treatment
At Sol Spine and Injury in Burbank, CA, proudly feature the electro-Acuscope and Myopulse instruments. When it comes to efficiency and safety, these two modalities are rarely matched. For a majority of our patients the use of these modalities significantly reduces pain and discomfort within 4-6 treatments.
The Electro-Acuscope is an Electro-therapeutic instrument that acts upon subcutaneous tissue to reduce pain and inflammation. It will also improve blood flow in circulatory-impaired tissues. Sol Wellness Center in Burbank CA uses this instrument in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Many types of tissue cells have membranes that are voltage-sensitive, and Electro-therapeutic currents can increase the entrance of substances such as calcium ions, which turn on repair mechanisms within those cells. The Electro-Acuscope monitors the electrical conductivity and impedance of the tissue, and also computes important electrical characteristics of the tissue from the current and voltage pulses themselves. Using this information, it adjusts the shape of those current and voltage pulses in order to optimize treatment effectiveness.
The Myopulse instrument is designed to treat connective tissue associated primarily with muscle. The amplitude of the current and voltage pulses continuously varies within a “sinusoidal modulation envelope.” It is well established that the membrane of each muscle fiber contains voltage-controlled calcium ion channels.
Much of the effectiveness of the Myopulse instrument appears to be due to modest increases in internal calcium which, though inadequate to cause muscle contraction, could still result in increased ATP and protein synthesis to prevent atrophy, accelerate repair and alleviate pain. Since the current and voltage pulses have constantly varying amplitudes over the 4 second period of each modulation envelope cycle since impulses will be optimal for each portion of the three-dimensional current field (even to considerable depth into the tissue). Some of the current pulses will have an initial current overshoot portion that can open higher threshold ion channels especially in regions of the current field that are closer to the electrodes. In addition to monitoring the current waveform of each pulse, the Myopulse instrument has special current and voltage monitoring impulses to provide tissue impedance information.
Exercise Physio - Therapy
An extremely important part of recovery is re-training the injured structures to regain flexibility and strength, this is where exercise therapy steps in. Injuries such as car accidents, work injuries, and sports injuries result in the injured body part and its surrounding structures being weakened. Once the inflammation is under control, Dr. Kazandjian, chiropractor in Burbank, CA will prescribe a regimen of stretches and exercises which are tailored to increasing flexibility and strengthening the injured and surrounding tissues to optimize recovery and prevent future injury. Following a thorough assessment, Dr. Kazandjian will prescribe exercises based on the latest and most advanced exercise and rehab science available. To make things as easy as possible for each patient, he usually prescribes and emails his patients videos with specific instructions targeting their injured body parts. This prescribed regimen is constantly reviewed and updated throughout the patients’ recovery process.
