We sometimes see new patients at Skaggs Chiropractic, LLC, who struggle with the stubbornly lingering pain from an injury or chronic condition. If you have tried to find the right pain treatment—whether efforts in traditional physician and physiotherapy sessions or through the use of medications—without success, we understand your frustration. Dr. Steven R. Skaggs, our caring and compassionate chiropractor, along with the rest of our team, is here to help you find the best solution to put you on the path to recovery. Our available treatments to help you feel relief include traditional chiropractic manipulations, lifestyle care, and ultrasound with low volt therapy.
You may wonder if ultrasound with low volt therapy is the right course of treatments to help you. It may help you to know if your injury could improve with this type of therapy. Following are just a few injuries that ultrasound and low volt therapy treatments can affect:
You may not know the underlying reason for your pain and discomfort. Our chiropractor can help you get to the root of your issue through a thorough round of diagnostic testing. The best path to helping you is to precisely why you are suffering, so it is important to our chiropractor to make sure we perform this step diligently. We do not want to waste any time helping to restore your health and well-being, and starting treatment before understanding your condition would do just that.
As soon as our chiropractor is sure that your condition will benefit from ultrasound and low volt therapy, we can set up appointments to help you start feeling better.
Dr. Skaggs believes in exploring the most beneficial natural therapies for all of our patients. Some types of therapies work better for some patients than others, which is why we are always open to exciting new methods to wellness, including those that rely on various technologies and specific equipment. If you have never heard of ultrasound with low level therapy, it may help to learn more about this exciting treatment.
Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves that features frequencies that far exceed the range of human audible capacities. For something we cannot hear, ultrasound emits a great deal of power at 800,000 Hz and 2,000,000 Hz for therapeutic purposes. To treat pain, ultrasound therapy stimulates damaged, inflamed, or otherwise irritated tissue beneath the skin's surface using these high-frequency waves. Using a gel on your skin to reduce friction, we will then use an applicator to apply this therapy to your skin's surface to transmit the ultrasonic waves to the underlying injured tissue.
Low level laser therapy, or low volt therapy, harnesses light's natural healing powers to help in your recovery. Also known as cold laser therapy, this chiropractic technique gives us the power to accelerate the healing process, relieving your pain and inflammation quickly and naturally. The laser device is often the size of a flashlight, and Dr. Skaggs holds it over the injured area for a few minutes to let the photons pass through the skin's layers stimulate the tissue and start the healing process.
