serves to promote blood flow and stimulate healing. Dr. Handy has used the following therapies with consistent results:
Ultrasound with Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Ultrasound alone creates small sound waves that in effect vibrate and massage soft tissues and muscle. Combined with Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) it helps reduce swelling, muscle spasm and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It also causes the body to release natural pain killers.
Active Release Technique
Through his years of expertise, Dr. Handy is able to find tissue that is injured or causing the problem and then physically works it back to its normal texture, tension and length. Used on injured muscles and nerves it frees up normal movement once again. Restoring proper nerve and muscle movement allows the body to perform at its most efficient level. It is not invasive, very specific, and provides excellent results.
