Roth Wellness & Chiropractic offers a number of effective alternative therapies that can work to increase a patient’s full recovery. Often, though, patients aren’t sure which ones will work the best for their particular situation. Dr. Roth can suggest alternative therapy treatments based on your past medical history but the more you know about each one, the better your ability to make a sound choice that offers all the relief you’re hoping for.
Acupuncture as Alternative Therapy
Acupuncture originated in ancient China and has been used for thousands of years to alleviate all sorts of painful symptoms. Though Americans have been slow to accept this form of alternative therapy as treatment, it has been used successfully for many types of pain relief including migraines, sports injuries, post-operative nausea, and Arthritis stiffness and pain.
Thin needles are inserted into acupuncture points, thereby stimulating these points and correcting imbalances throughout your body. Chinese medicine says that humans sometimes become sick because the flow of Qi is blocked. Qi (or Meridians) are channels in the body’s internal structure that can become blocked due to a number of issues. Acupuncture clears these channels so that the energy flows freely.
Massage Therapy as Alternative Therapy
Most individuals love massage therapy, and would come every day if they could. The reason for this is that it relaxes you and just makes you feel better all over. If done correctly, massage therapy can actually promote the healing process by decreasing muscle reflex activity and inhibiting motor-neuron excitability. At Roth Wellness & Chiropractic we focus on relieving the physical pain that comes from soreness stored in muscle tissue as a result of stress, injury, or overexertion with massage therapy.
Zen Pro Vibration Alternative Therapy
At Roth Wellness, we get a lot of questions about Whole Body Vibration Therapy or Zen Pro. Patients just can’t believe that only 10 minutes on the ZEN PRO equals over an hour’s worth of anaerobic and aerobic exercise. Clients are extremely pleased with their results, which include weight loss, increased energy, and decreased pain levels.
The ZEN PRO Whole Body Vibration device provides a revolutionary exercise supplement that is used by medical, therapeutic, and rehabilitation centers, as well as senior centers all over the world. Typical sessions last approximately 10-20 minutes and consist of standing upright on a vibration platform that produces sonic vertical vibrations ranging from 3Hz (pulses per second) to 60Hz with varying intensity.
Sound waves pulse through the body at varying frequencies that resonate with different muscle groups and zones of the body. These vibrations increase dynamic blood flow to joints and connective tissue via muscle contractions. Patients report a reduction in muscle soreness, and joint stiffness. Research indicates an increase in bone and muscle mass, flexibility and strength. An increase in the function of intra-pelvic muscles and smaller muscle groups, such as facial muscles, has also been documented.
