The use of kinesiology tape can provide therapeutic input focused on the neural component of an injury. Kinesiology tape is a specialized form of athletic tape able to interact with the body’s sensory system due to the unique manufacturing characteristics of the tape. The tape is manufactured to be the same weight, thickness, and elasticity of human skin; therefore it works with the body to help achieve therapeutic effects. Special adhesives in the manufacture allow the tape to be worn continuously, even while bathing and exercising, for multiple days. This allows patients to leave following their adjustment with an extension of their treatment that is providing ongoing stimulation to help accelerate the intended clinical objectives.

Diet and exercise are key to weight loss. But you may be facing some less-obvious culprits that thwart your attempts to lose weight.
1) Sleep Deprivation: Studies show taht when subjects sleep less than five hours a night (compared with seven hours or more), they do not produce adequate levels of leptin, which controls appetite.
2) Cortisol: Cortisol is a horomone essential for health, but in excess can stimulate increased appetite and contribute to the deposition of fat and the catabolism of muscle.
3) Dehydration: Hydration is required to maintain a higher level of metabolic activity. A dehydrated person’s metabolism slows down and calorie burning is reduced.

The use of low level laser therapy in conjuction with chiropractic care on chronic conditions, i.e, Osteoarthritis, can be a welcome alternative for patients seeking relief. The goal of laser therapy is to delivery light energy units, called photons, to damaged cells. Photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell responsible for energy production of ATP. This biochemical is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. While many chronic arthritic conditions cannot technically be “cured”, with the right treatment plan – including laser therapy- it can be managed, which ultimately leads to better quality of life. Laser therapy is noninvasive and may help reduce pain while increasing motion. Improving function allows more efficiency and improves daily activity. Activity, in turn, can help improve inflammation. There are over 4,000 clinical studies validating cold laser therapy and its effectiveness in dealing safely with pain, inflammation, and tissue repair. It is extremely safe with very few contraindications and no known side effects. Laser therapy often provides immediate relief and is easily administered by our doctors and staff.
