Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Induces Microscopic Retractions of Herniated or Bulging Discs for Drastic Results - Austin, TX

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 30, 2016

TexStar Chiropractic - Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX

When discussing the benefits of spinal decompression you'll find that there are numerous reasons to consider this option. In addition to providing relief from back and neck pain, non-surgical spinal decompression also treats the pain by treating bulging or herniated disks as well as degenerative disk disease, posterior facet syndrome, and injured spinal nerve roots which are the causes of the pain.

When undergoing nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX, you are placed on a computer-controlled table while your doctor fits you in two harnesses, one around your pelvis and another around your trunk. This creates motorized traction which can be customized to cater to your varying functionality and pain.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression incorporates revolutionary technology and uses FDA rated equipment. The equipment applies distraction forces to the spine in a controlled and precise manner creating a vacuum within the damaged discs. This is known as negative intra-discal pressure. This pressure causes the microscopic retraction of the herniated or bulging disc for results that are quite dramatic.

MLS Cold Laser Therapy - How it Speeds Up Recovery from Chronic Conditions - Austin, TX

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 28, 2016

More and more people are becoming interested in cold laser therapy. Cold laser therapy is FDA-approved to treat painful, debilitating, and recurring conditions in the body with the use of specific wavelengths of light.

There are many different benefits of cold laser therapy. MLS therapy contributes largely in decreasing the time it takes for a patient to resume normal activities after undergoing surgery or even after suffering from an injury. As a result, patients can get back to work faster as compared to the recovery period without MLS. MLS cold laser therapy also minimizes the need for analgesics and anti-inflammatories as it helps relieve pain and discomfort.

When you undergo MLS cold laser therapy in Austin, TX, you will enjoy a safe, effective, non-invasive, and drug-free alternative to treating arthritic pain, carpal tunnel, rotator cuff, sports injury, tennis elbow, tendonitis, sprain, strain, and more. This alternative therapy is backed by 27 years of research and supported by scientific studies that verify its efficacy in decreasing pain and inflammation of chronic conditions.

Cold Laser Therapy - Austin, TX - Texstar Chiropractic

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 06, 2016
Cold laser therapy is probably the most transformative modality to come down the medical pathway for the last 50 years. – Richard Jacoby, D.P.M. 

Ninety percent of our patients are achieving almost 90% relief of their symptoms which is unheard of. – Ronald Lederman, M.D. 

It is going to revolutionize the way patients are taken care of. – Henry Madalian, D.C. 

It has changed our practice in the ability to offer these types of treatments and the confidence I have in saying "I can help you." – Paul Ledezma, D.P.M. 

You see someone that has such debilitating pain in their shoulder, their knee, or their back and in 1 or 2 treatments, they are 80% to 90% better. – Mark Kwartowitz, D.O. 

What we are seeing in the practice both acute and chronic is just amazing. – Karl Lickteig, D.C. 

I think this is frankly the edge of a tidal wave. I think you are going to see within the next 5 years is a significant shift in medicine towards utilization of this type of therapy for patients across the board, across specialties. – Tracy Basso, D.P.M. 

It is always better to be able to treat patients faster. You know, get the results in the shortest amount of time possible, with the latest and the best technology. – Jean Santo, M.D. 

That technology is MLS Laser Therapy from Cutting Edge laser technologies. Doctors across various specialties have been amazed by its ability to accelerate healing and alleviate pain. 

I put myself under this laser the day after we got it. I did my shoulder and my knee, and that night I realized that I have no pain on my shoulder or knee after one treatment. It works. – Ronald Lederman, M.D. 

How it works is by employing two synchronized wavelengths of light which transfer energy to damaged tissues at the cellular level. 

That light triggers metabolic reactions in the cell that stimulate healing, stimulate reduced inflammation, and stimulate pain reduction. – Jean Santo, M.D. 

So we can get a dual treatment approach if you will with both inflammation and pain reduction. It is unmatched. I have used other systems before and have never got any effect that I have with the MLS System. – Karl Lickteig, D.C. 

MLS laser therapy is the result of 30 years of research and was initially used by veterinarians in the United States with uniformly outstanding results. That lead to a series of academic studies focusing on human applications. 

The MLS laser therapy has been well-validated through a variety of clinical trials in some of the most world-renowned institutions world-wide. So we brought the technology to the market based on the clinical validation of the science behind it. – Mark Mollenkopf 

After going through the different scientific studies, a lot of them are from Harvard, I was intrigued by the impact this light energy has on the cells. And to be able to decrease the inflammation pathway and the swelling at the cellular level, it makes sense that you thereby decrease the pain. – Ronald Lederman, M.D. 

For patients across America, MLS cold laser therapy in Austin, TX has meant relief from often intractable pain without medication, without surgery. 

I am getting amazing results and I cannot wait to send other people in here to get the same benefits from it. 

Even throwing a football, I can throw a football a lot better now than I could three years ago. 

I am so excited and I told everybody about it. 

Even now, after several months, I have no pain in my knee. It was like a mega-dose of Advil and ice, invisible, and it was just amazing. 

It was the second treatment and I walked out of here and I already knew that something was different, and them I called him back up and I said thanks a lot. I think there maybe something to this. 

The primary MLS laser therapy unit has a touch screen menu that allows doctors or staff to easily select the treatment. The robotic test does the rest. There is also a separate hand-held probe that is preferable for some treatments including trigger points. 

Actually, we have two lasers in one. We can utilize the hand-held units in any smaller joints. I have used it on TMJ and it works absolutely great. - Henry Madalian, D.C. 

Shoulders, feet, hands, wrists, things like that. The trigger point probe is more effective. - Kristen Clark 

Edge MLS laser is often described as nothing short of revolutionary. 

It is achieving results that have never been achieved before in treatment times that are shorter than have ever been expected before. So that is really why we view this as revolutionary. – Mark Mollenkopf 

It has revolutionized our practice in that I can sit there and not feel like a failure as a physician. Offer them something that has no downside and these people are getting better. So every day I come to work, I feel like I have my ace in the hole. – Ronald Lederman, M.D.

Help Students Avoid Back-to-School Pain - Austin, TX

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 15, 2016
Today's students are susceptible to a range of musculoskeletal injuries, such as neck and back pain, as a result of some of the equipment and devices they frequently use: backpacks, smartphones and other mobile devices. 
 
The American Chiropractic Association offers simple injury-prevention tips parents can share with their children to keep them healthy and pain-free:
  • Limit a backpack's weight to no more than 5 to 10 percent of the child's body weight. A heavier backpack will cause your child to bend forward in an attempt to support the weight on his or her back, rather than on the shoulders by using the straps.
  • A backpack should never hang more than four inches below the waistline. A backpack that hangs too low increases the weight on the shoulders, causing your child to lean forward when walking.
  • Urge your child to wear both of the backpack's straps—not to sling it over one shoulder as is common. Lugging the backpack around by one strap can cause the disproportionate shift of weight to one side, leading to neck and muscle spasms as well as low back pain.
  • To avoid strain when texting on a smartphone, encourage children to bring their arms up in front of their eyes so that they don't need to look down to see the screen. If they do look down, they should tuck in their chin rather than dropping the entire head forward.
  • Limit a child's screen time, and make sure he or she takes periodic stretch breaks. Kids should balance sedentary screen time with regular physical activity.

Cold Laser Therapy Provides Patient Relief from Pain, Inflammation, and Other Debilitating Conditions - Austin, TX

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 11, 2016

Cold laser therapy in Austin, TX has grown increasingly popular because of the many different benefits it offers to patients undergoing treatment. This non-surgical treatment uses low-level lasers that are typically small so they are easy to handle.

The lasers emit low levels of lights in specific wavelengths. The lights are absorbed by the mitochondria which are the cell’s energy-producing organelles. As a result, there is an increase in cellular energy production which ultimately helps heal the surrounding damaged tissues safely, effectively stimulating them so that their healing process is significantly enhanced. This process then provides the patient relief from pain, inflammation, and other debilitating conditions.

The light energy from low-level laser therapy can enter the damaged cells stimulating inter-cellular activity. Because the light reaches the cellular level, various benefits of cold laser therapy exist. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete. In addition to faster pain reduction and more timely healing of damaged cells, cold laser therapy also has a strong anti-inflammatory effect, rapid resolution of swelling, and improves local blood circulation.

There are many conditions that respond well to cold laser therapy. These conditions include but are not limited to soft tissue injury, sore muscles, torn ligaments, degenerative joints, nerve pain, musculoskeletal issues, as well as pre- and post-surgical treatment.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Treats Neuro-Musculoskeletal Conditions Safely, Effectively, and Conservatively - Austin, TX

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 02, 2016

TexStar Chiropractic - Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX

When you are experiencing pain and dysfunction due to neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, consider conservative treatment options such as nonsurgical spinal decompression. This treatment is proven safe and effective to provide pain relief from damaged, herniated, or bulged disc. When a disc is injured, it seldom retracts on its own, especially when subjected to gravity and constant internal pressure. This is reason enough to undergo spinal decompression treatment.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX will relieve internal pressure on the vital structures of the spine. By non-invasively healing the affected discs, patients can return to their everyday active lifestyle, pain-free. During the treatment, patients will be comfortably positioned on the Disc-Decompression Table for a gentle computer-controlled tractioning procedure. This helps reduce the internal pressure of the disc. In addition to bringing relief, nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy also helps restore the natural process involved in transferring the surrounding fluids, oxygen, and other nutrients into the disc to improve the health of the disc and prevent neck and back pain.

TexStar Chiropractic is a family practice in Southwest Austin. We provide high quality, patient focused, and results driven health care for all of your musculo-skeletal needs. Chiropractic care offers those suffering from pain and discomfort as a result of injury a natural way to better health without expensive prescription medications or invasive surgical procedures.

For all types of Musculoskeletal issues, Pre and Post-surgical treatment, and a host of other conditions, laser therapy is a non-invasive solution which uses specific wave-lengths of light to stimulate inter-cellular activity and healing in order to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

Damaged, degenerative, bulging, herniated and ruptured spinal discs rarely heal without proper treatment because they are constantly under pressure. Chronic back pain is one of the most debilitating issues in America today. Spinal Decompression Therapy creates negative pressures inside the damaged disc letting it retract naturally to relieve the pressure on spinal nerves. With state-of -the-art treatment using Spinal Decompression your body may be able to repair some of the damage to the neck and spine from this pressure.

At TexStar Chiropractic we have the education, the technology and the knowledge to help patients get relief from pain to allow them to return to everyday activities. We would like to share information about Chiropractic care with this informative blog. We will be updating it regularly so please subscribe to our blog and stay up on the latest information.
