SIGMA Instrument Assisted Treatment
Unique to chiropractic treatment and technique approaches, SIGMA Instrument Methods™ (ProAdjuster, Spineliner) makes use of an advanced technical instrument for both spinal analysis and spinal adjustment. The system is driven by a sophisticated software package, designed to help the practitioner in locating and treating spinal segmental dysfunction and/or fixations.
Acousana therapy is a modern approach to healing the human body. The non-invasive treatment uses patented SoftWave® technology that penetrates deep into the tissue of injured muscles and joints to promote blood flow, increase circulation, reduce inflammation and eliminate pain while also stimulating your body's natural process for self repair for long-term healing.
We provide spinal decompression for lower back disc injuries using a Flexion - Distraction Table. This technique and table provides safe decompression and traction of the lower back speeding the recovery of disc injuries.
This technique has the same effectiveness as spinal decompression with a DRX-9000 device without the high cost. Flexion-Distraction is also fully covered by your insurance, the DRX-9000 device is not.
Dr. Gefaller is certified by Spider-Tech and KT-Tape - The leaders in Kinesio Taping. Kinesio Tape is different than the while athletic tape you may have used before. It is not used to provide bracing, but stimulates muscles to improve support around an injured area and it can help restore pain-free movement to a joint or muscles. Kinesio Tape can also be used to reduce swelling and bruising after an injury. This will speed your recovery and get you back to doing what you love.
