For that reason, Higher Health Chiropractic has three massage therapists on staff, each expert in a variety of massage techniques ranging from sports massage to injury massage, deep tissue, Swedish, pregnancy, hot stone, and aromatherapy.

Massage has been found to be enormously beneficial for rehabilitation, prevention of injuries, managing stress and inducing relaxation.

Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy is one of the newest forms of pain management that also reduce post-surgical redness and inflammation.
This laser transmits low levels of laser light to sooth inflammatory conditions, connective tissue and joint injuries and disorders plus headaches and herniated disks. This emerging medical technique uses exposure to low-level laser light or light-emitting diodes to stimulate or inhibit cellular function possibly leading to beneficial clinical effects. The wavelength, intensity, duration and treatment intervals are customized to achieve the most effective results for the patient’s condition.
Clinical applications are effective in treating soft tissue injury, chronic pain, and wound healing plus inflammation.
A method of applyinggentle suction pressure to those trigger points. This increases blood flow to the skin, fascia, and muscle; stimulating toxin release and healing. We are excited to offer this innovative (though ancient!) technique to complete our array of alternative wellness therapies.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-chiropractic therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics, repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your discs.
Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal.
Traditional corrective treatments include surgery or chiropractic adjustment. Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative FDA approved treatment option that has shown very good results.
Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which pulls the disc back into shape.
Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute increments. But over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.
Spinal decompression relieves pressure between spinal vertebrae, disks, and nerves.
Custom orthotics are specially made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. Prescription orthotics are crafted for you and no one else. They match the contours of your feet precisely and are designed for the way you move. Over-the-counter shoe inserts can add additional cushioning and support, but they’re not made to address your foot issues. Only a prescription orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure.
Orthotics treat foot problems such as:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Foot, ankle, and heel pain.
Ergowave Roller Therapy
Our new Ergowave Roller therapy table features a unique roller wave action and targets all areas of a patient's spine with three independent rollers repeating every 13 seconds. Isolated therapeutic pressure and massage can be applied independently to lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions. Sessions last 30 minutes
Natural Stress Relief
Stress has become a fact of life, and for some, the daily norm. Although occasional stress can help improve our focus and performance, living with chronic stress can backfire by causing anxiety, depression, and serious health problems.
Understanding who we are, knowing our major struggles, putting them in perspective, and taking action can help us deal with stress. The following strategies can also improve stress tolerance and help lessen the effects of stress on our health. Learn more about our recommendations for soothing stress on our blog.
