Massage can stimulate and relax the body and mind. The skin, blood, and lymphatic systems are stimulated, thus increasing circulation, aiding in cellular renewal and the removal of toxins that have accumulated in the body. As muscles relax, stiff joints loosen and nerves are calmed allowing for a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
Dr. Berger works closely with our highly qualified massage therapist to enable each patient to receive treatment specific to each one’s individual needs.
Our office offers a variety of types of massages that will be tailored to your individual needs and comfort levels. Among our most therapeutic massages are the deep tissue and the hot stone massages.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue (fascia) restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, inflammation, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions which in turn can create severe pain.
Using Myofascial Release, Dr. Berger skillfully and accurately detects fascial restrictions and can then apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
Rehabilitation involves the restoration of proper joint function and strengthening of supporting muscles and soft tissues. This will usually involve specific spinal adjustments, combined with stretching, resistance training, and exercises to improve muscle tone. This speeds the healing process and recovery from injury or spinal problems
Some patients receive some simple exercises to do at home. Our office has a variety of specialized equipment for patients to use, under guidance, to strengthen the supporting soft tissue of the spine, thus speeding the healing process.
Deep Tissue Laser
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy™ is an innovative, scientifically based, therapeutic modality. This new technology offers advanced pain relief and expedited healing times through a process known as photobiostimulation.
The LCT-1000® delivers, deep, penetrating, photonic energy to bring about profound physiological changes. ATP (Adenosine-triphosphate) production is increased, inflammation and pain reduced and circulation increased at the site of injury. These changes in cellular chemistry are triggered by the LCT-1000® making it a true healing modality.
