Infrared and Soft Tissue Therapies

The therapies below are applied on a case-by-case basis, depending on assessment findings and patient needs. We regularly include red light and infrared therapies in every case where their addition is safe and can aid in the patient’s healing. All of these therapies are added  without any additional fee.

Red Light Therapy

The red light treatment uses low wavelength red light to treat issues on the skin, such as acne, cysts, bumps, scars, redness, and wrinkles. It can also help reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and enhance the performance of energy-making mitochondria in the cell, making it beneficial for athletic performance and cellular health.

Near Infrared Therapy

Near infrared is a type of light outside the visible spectrum used to treat deeper skin issues than red light can treat.

Far Infrared Mineral Lamps

Far infrared mineral (TDP) lamps incorporate a mineral plate that is heated to ionize trace minerals, improving circulation, inflammation, and wounds. Patients report this is their favorite lamp. Our clinic has had success reducing cysts on feet, skin tags, or moles.

Myofascial decompression (Cupping)

Myofascial Decompression (MFD) is combines cupping with evidence-based movement principles in orthopedics and sports medicine. Cupping therapy may be added to treatment to improve movement efficiency, fascial mobility, and neuromuscular re-education. While this is generally not painful, patients have reported soreness or tenderness at the cupping sight along with some bruising.

Scraping (Guasha)

With traditional training in guasha guided by the most up-to-date research in scraping and manual therapy, Jack understands when to apply scraping/guasha as a part of a treatment plan. This tool can be helpful to improve range of motion and promote changes in the neurological and chemical states of the tissue that reduce pain and inflammation.

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a specialized stretching technique used to enhance muscle elasticity and improve both active and passive range of motion. It involves a combination of two distinct types of stretches: passive stretching and isometric stretching.

With PNF, after stretching a muscle group to its limit, you then push against a stationary object, typically with the assistance of a therapist or personal trainer. Your muscles will resist for a few seconds, and then you’ll take a deep breath while relaxing the muscles. As you exhale, the muscle group will be pushed slightly further.

Stretching a muscle group to its maximum capacity and holding that position triggers a reflex in the muscle to relax so as to prevent tears and strains when it is pushed slightly beyond its limit. As a result, muscles become more pliable when relaxed, allowing for improved flexibility and range of motion.
