To further aid in your recovery, Dr. Wheat may also add ultrasound. Therapeutic ultrasound is administered at the site of soft tissue injury, specifically muscles. This helps to reduce pain, decrease swelling, promote muscle tone, and speed the healing process.

Why do we use this in our office?
Ultrasound has been used as an effective form of pain relief. It is recommended in cases in which pain is accompanied by swelling and inflammation.

Intersegmental Traction
Intersegmental traction is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints, and increasing mobility. The paitent lies face up on a bench table that has a roller beneath its surface. These rollers slowly travel the length of the spine, stretching spinal joints.


Why do we use this in our office?
Because spinal discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding the spinal joints. Fixations of the spine prevent this natural circulation and can cause disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restores necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.
