Therapeutic Modalities in Ashland

Wellspring Centre for Body Balance offers the following non-invasive, drug-free healing modalities provided by a state licensed Chiropractic Assistant under the supervision of our Doctors of Chiropractic:
Therapeutic Modalities

  • Ultrasound Therapy: Sound waves are directed at a localized area, warming tissues and increasing blood flow to the area, thereby reducing inflammation, swelling, pain, muscle spasms, joint contractures and scar tissue, and increasing relaxation in the tissues. This modality is helpful for chronic and acute pain and injuries, including soft tissue injuries and adhesive capsulitis or “frozen shoulder.”
  • Cold Laser Therapy: Low-level infrared light energy penetrates deep into tissues, producing an increase in cellular metabolism that promotes rapid cell repair, and stimulates the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems to reduce pain, inflammation, swelling and healing times. Cold Laser Therapy can be a great choice for people experiencing the following injuries or conditions: sprains or strains, ligament injuries, dislocations, tendonitis, closed fractures and plantar fasciitis.
  • Electrical Stimulation (E-Stim) Therapy: Mild electrical currents are delivered to specific body areas reducing pain, muscle spasm and swelling, and increasing circulation to promote healing. This rehabilitative therapy can be helpful for pain following injury or surgery.
  • Rapid Release Therapy: A vibrating device is applied in a circular motion to an area of muscle pain, spasm, scar tissue or adhesions. The vibration assists in the break-up of scar tissue and adhesions, relaxes muscles, and reduces pain. The vibrational frequency has been specifically tailored to be absorbed by scar tissue, while passing through healthy tissue. Rapid Release can be helpful for healing trapped nerves, muscle spasm, adhesion, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and more.

These modalities are used to treat chronic and acute pain and promote healing. To receive these therapies, patients will need a prescription from their medical or chiropractic doctor. We are happy to treat patients who come to us with prescriptions from a doctor outside of Wellspring Centre. If you are not in care with a health care provider but feel that one of these therapies could benefit you, schedule a brief office visit with one of our doctors to evaluate your condition and prescribe one or more of our therapeutic modalities, if appropriate.
