TENS is a non-invasive, low-risk nerve stimulation intended to reduce pain, both acute and chronic. It can reduce swelling and acts almost like electrical ibuprofen. We intend our patients to use this machine in between visits to reduce discomfort and increase functionality. There has also been some research to prove this aspect about alternative medicine and the use of TENS. Ask Dr. Mangum if you would benefit from this machine.

When applied as directed, China-Gel stimulates the body’s endorphin response to pain and reduces the pain – producing “P factor” in muscle tissue, thereby lessening pain and discomfort, and enhancing healing. The deep penetrating effect offers long lasting cool-to-warm soothing relief. Visit www.chinagel.com for more information. The reason we like this product is because of its herbal components not found in some of it competing products (i.e. menthol, camphor, ginseng, angelica, lavender, aloe vera and witch hazel)
**We can get pretty much any brace that is available on the market. Ask to find out if your health insurance may cover braces.**
From time to time bracing can be of great support to the body. We typically don’t brace for extended periods of time because the body will become dependent on the brace and it can weaken the structure and supporting muscles, ligaments and tendons. We offer braces that can be billed to your insurance with minimal out of pocket cost to the patients; in some cases it may be FREE!
