Therapeutic Modalities

At Signature Chiropractic, we offer a variety of passive modalities, ranging from cold and heat modalities, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, and more. 

Cold Modalities can be safely use for acute, subacute, and chronic condition. The primary benefits are pain control, prevent edema formation, relieve muscle spasm. Heat Modalities can be used to achieve similar treatment goals such as decreased pain, decreased muscle spasm, and increased range of motion.

Therapeutic Ultrasound can be use for musculoskeletal conditions primarily for its deep-heating effects. The benefits of ultrasound application include increased rate of tissue repair and healing, increased blood flow, breakdown of calcium deposits, reduction of pain and muscle spasm.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations, the current intensity can be changed to allow for a gentle muscle contraction. The treatment purpose for this modality is to control acute and chronic pain, reduce edema, inhibit muscle spasm, facilitate tissue healing, strengthen muscle.
