Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive therapy that is most trusted way to increase oxygen levels to all organs and tissues of the body. Hypberaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the use of an oxygen-enriched environment at the level of pressure higher than one atmosphere absolute (ATA). Increased pressure allows oxygen to dissolve and saturate more effectively in the blood system, primarily the plasma (independent of hemoglobin); which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical, and cellular effects. The treatment itself can usually last from 60 to 90 minutes. http://hyperbaricexperts.com
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your treatment. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Cranial Facial Release
One of the techniques that Dr. Mizuba provides at the office is Cranial Facial Release or CFR. CFR is an advanced endo-nasal cranial technique that has been used quite successfully in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders. The objective of CFR technique is to induce mobility in the cranial system, specifically the sphenoid bone, with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory function. The technique is performed by inserting a tiny balloon in the nose (specifically the naso pharynx) then quickly inflating them to mobilize the cranial bones. The procedure takes about 2 to 3 seconds. CFR is recommended for those who have had a head or cervical trauma, birth trauma, TMJ disorder. CFR's primary objective is to mobilize the cranial bones, unlock cranial fixations, open the breathing passageways, facilitate cerebral spinal fluid flow, increase vascular flow to and venous drainage from the cranium, and optimize brain function. This often times improves symptoms related to various neurological disorders. For more information about CFR feel free to call us 814-833-9355 or visit http://www.cranialfacialrelease.com/home.html
Energy Balance Foot Bath
The EBR-pro, Energy Balance, detoxification footbath is one of the services provided at our office to help our patients live a healthier life. The energy balance foot bath removes impurities and toxins from the body through pores on the feet. It does this by creating an electromagnetic ionic field in which the patient places their feet in an aqueous salt solution to increase energy and the positively charged cellular activity through the attached array. By immersing your feet in the water you will enable an electrical contact with all the primary meridians in the body. The average treatment last 18 to 23 minutes. Patients often feel more energy, and experience a greater feeling of well-being. Patients with pain, edema, gout, headaches, and swollen joints have often reported immediate relief. Other patients with arthritis, allergies, lymph edema, neuralgia and other symptoms have experienced relief and benefits with multiple treatments. The EB foot bath is where bio-science meets optimal health! For more information about EB Footbath feel free to call us 814-833-9355 or visit visit http://ebfootbath.com/pro/
Normatec Dynamic Compression Therapy
The Normatec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab for athletes and the
working man and woman.
We offer Normatec treatment for the legs, arms, or hips. Each session begins with a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your body shape. Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each zone of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This cycle repeats for each segment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb, aiding your body in expelling lactic acid and edema. https://www.normatecrecovery.com
Kinesiology Tape is a rehabilitative technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. When the tape is applied correctly, the lifting forms convolutions in the skin and takes pressure off swelling or injured muscles. The increased interstitial space allows for smooth muscle movement, decreased inflammation and makes space for drainage and blood flow.
