Cold / Ice Pack Therapy
Placing an ice pack over an injured area of the body can be very helpful in the recovery process by decreasing the swelling, therefore also decreasing the oxygen demand of the surrounding soft tissues. Ice also slows the speed of nerve conduction which helps noticeably decrease muscle spasms, muscle guarding and pain levels.
Spinal Rehabilitation Exercises
Stress has a significant and negative part to play in our lives... and unfortunately, is unavoidable. Our fast paced lives and the constant chase to meet deadlines tend to emphasize the tension we feel. The anxiety, anger and depression that is all too often associated with stress frequently leads to magnified symptoms that we already have. Massage therapy is a wonderful tool to help decrease the stress level but also significantly improve the body's ability to heal and repair after injury or trauma.
