Treatment Modalities

The use of different therapy to influence the physiology of the body which in turn effects and enhances the healing process of soft tissue and myofascial injuries.

Is used in any and all stages of muscular-myofascial injury to neck, back, and orthopedic joints. The use of electrical impulses to stimulate muscles enhances healing chemically, and reduces the tightness or spasm in the muscle through fatigue of the muscle. This therapy is best used in the acute stages of injury and spasm when a person cannot tolerate manual therapies such as soft tissue or osseous manipulation.

Ultrasound is a sound wave that penetrates deep into the body and causes dissipation of fluids and inflammatory agents surrounding injured tissue or joints. It is very effective in all stages of treatment, and is very effective in preparing the soft tissue and fascia for deep tissue therapies such as neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release. It also acts as a deep heat therapy in certain stages and also enhances the healing phase by accelerating metabolism of the cells, and decreases the effects of healing scar tissue.

Massage techniques include Swedish, Neuromuscular, and Myofascial Release.

Swedish is a relaxation technique that treats the entire body in 55 minutes. Soothing but firm pressure is exerted to the entire body to include neck, back, arms, legs, facial areas, and abdomen. Swedish Massage is performed with paraffin and hot stones to enhance the experience of relaxation to the highest degree!

Neuromuscular Therapy is an intense and deep tissue therapy that works muscles and soft tissue of the body usually due to injury and trauma. It is a system of analysis and therapy dealing with postural imbalance and the correction of muscles that are weak and contracted.
Therapy is sometimes too intense for individuals with a low pain threshold, or an acute injury.

Myofascial Release is a system of analysis and treatment to the fascial system of the body.
Fascia is the underlying connective tissue of the skeleton and connects soft tissue to bones and joints.  Myofascial Release involves deep tissue and positional techniques to release "Holding Patterns" in posture caused by this underlying soft tissue.

Chiropractic manipulative therapy is used as necessary for conditions that require osseous manipulation to regain mobility of segments that become "fixed" when the soft tissue is injured or in spasm. Dr. Chaifetz has perfected many techniques and generally uses very gentle, low force methods. Dr Chaifetz has treated patients as young as 3 weeks old, and as old as 94.
