GET ROCKTAPED HERE!

 

 

Rocktape is a latex free, cotton elastic tape that lifts the skin as it is stretched and applied. Unlike standard athletic tape, it increases blood flow and ciruclation while decreases swelling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rocktape creates more space between your muscles or joints and the skin, decreasing the pressure on your nerves associated with pain.

 

Rocktape increases range of motion and helps with joint pain. Dr Vu loves to apply Rocktape to patients who are still requiring extra help. "Rocktape helps give support and stabilization to your joints. Many patients get relief and come to me for taping for back conditions or just for posture, and other conditions with shoulders and knees."

It is a pain-free, low level photo therapy treatment that works on a cellular level. The light penetrates through the skin to increase blood circulation and cell production - thereby eliminating inflammation, and helping speed the healing process. This laser is frequently used by pro sports teams to help get players back in the game. It is safe for all ages and each treatment only takes a few minutes.

Cold Laser can help with multiple types of discomfort including:

  • chronic pain
  • joint pain
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • frozen shoulder
  • sciatic pain
  • acute injury pain
  • arthritis
  • muscle spasms
  • wrist and elbow pain
  • foot and ankle pain
  • sore shoulder
  • disc herniation

 

 

 

                        

If you are a patient of this practice - you have been told about the importance of icing.

When you are injured, your first reaction might be to apply heat to the affected area. While this may feel good at the time, it is actually just adding to the inflammation.

Icing calms the area, increasing the speed in which you heal. Have you ever heard of pro athletes sitting in a tub with ice? This is to relax sore muscles and injuries.

Icing helps with bruises, sprains, strains, tendonitis, and repetitive motion injuries.

Everyone should have a good ice pack in their freezer to calm neck pain, which may help with headaches, sports injuries, lower back pain, and more.

Here at the clinic we use and sell large sized, gel based ice packs which get cold fast and stay cold longer. They are top of the line and will last you years to come. They are perfect for icing after your adjustment. Mention this blog and get $5 off an ice pack.
