TENS units (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) are portable devices that use electric current applied to the skin. The kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators is used primarily to treat chronic pain. The unit can be worn on your belt and is usually connected to the skin using two or more electrodes. A typical battery-operated TENS unit is able to modulate pulse width, frequency and intensity. These settings help to reduce pain superficially without causing muscle contraction. It is thought that they reduce pain via the gate control theory. Both offices carry a quality digital version of these units.
We are pleased to help launch the introduction of the MYOSPHERE, a treatment apparatus used in myofascial therapy to provide long-term relief of pain and stiffness! The MYOSPHERE was conceptualized, designed and constructed by Licensed Physical Therapists with input from Healthcare providers, including Dr. Ralph Kruse. The goal is to provide maximum results with advanced myofascial, muscle relaxation, and trigger point therapy with a simple-to-use, portable and affordable device.
This spherical tool is made of a material which is lightweight yet firm enough to target the treatment area. Its specially hand- applied coating is designed to be easily cleaned and forgiving under pressure. The shape allows for multi-directional therapy thus helping treat the most common trigger points, providing even more specificity than the commonly used foam roller.
We utilize the MYOSPHERE during treatments on some of our patients and recommend patients use one at home to maximize their results. We sell the MYOSPHERE in both our suburban Homewood and downtown Chicago offices.
Foam rolling is an effective method of myofascial release used to stretch and inhibit overactive muscles and tight fascia. The foam roller utilizes concept affecting the nervous system to improve soft tissue extensibility, which relaxes the muscle and allows the activation of the appropriate muscle.
This technique can be effective for many muscles of the body, including: the calves (gastrocnemius), back (latissimus dorsi, and spinal erectors), buttocks (piriformis and gluteal), thighs (adductors, quadriceps, hamstrings), hip flexors (psoas), thoracic spine (trapezius and rhomboids), and iliotibial band/tensor fascia latta.
Rolling the foam roller under each muscle group using your own body weight helps stretch tight structures, reduces trigger points and improves circulation and flexibility.
We sell the High Density Foam Roller in both our suburban Homewood and downtown Chicago offices.
A Thera-Band is a latex resistance band used for physical therapy, posture and light strength training.
They are commonly used by athletes to strengthen and stretch.
We frequently start using the bands, which come in different resistances, under the direction of a physician or personal trainer. In many cases we give patients the band so they can perform their exercises at home. In this way we can reduce the number of office visits needed and prevent future recurrences of pain.
These bands can be used to increase motor function and strength in a long-term exercise plan.
We sell the Thera-Band in both our suburban Homewood and downtown Chicago offices.
