Traction is a common nonsurgical treatment for a herniated disc in the neck or back that relieves pain by opening the cervical foramen to reduce pressure on compressed nerve roots exiting the spinal canal.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a therapeutic technique that uses specific applied instruments to promote mobilization of restricted tissue. Restricted or adhered myofascial tissue and/or scar tissue are the primary tissues addressed with its application.
Functional Dry Needling
Functional Dry Needling is a technique physical therapists use (where allowed by state law) to treat myofascial pain. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
