At Beverly Hills Posture, we are passionate about providing comprehensive treatment to our patients. Our extensive list of available modalities allows us to treat the source of the problem and not only the symptoms. Of course we offer manual adjustments, massage, fitness instruction, and acupuncture. But are you familiar with the rest of our services?
Keep reading to learn more about some of the other treatment options available to our patients:
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (E-Stim)
A low voltage electrical current is delivered to the patient via electrodes placed directly on the skin, causing the muscle to contract and relax. When done properly, it is a safe treatment that has been shown to be potentially effective in treating a number of aches, pains, and disorders, including back pain, neck pain, tendonitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, etc. There are few to no side effects associated with the treatment.
Infrared heat lamp
Sitting under an infrared heat lamp is like basking in the sun sans its damaging effects (and vitamin D production). A cost-effective treatment wherein wavelengths deliver energy to the cells, far infrared light has been proven to significantly decrease pain and promote faster healing. Unlike near infrared, a type of light frequently found in the the rays of the sun, far infrared (the light found in an infrared lamp) is completely safe.
The Miracle Wave offers a non-invasive approach to restoring painless mobility to patients with chronic and acute musculoskeletal conditions. Acoustic sound waves are transmitted into the tissue of the affected area. This helps promote a natural self-healing response, restoring mobility and relieving pain. The average session lasts about 5-10 minutes. Multiple sessions are often required, depending on the condition. There is no downtime and there are no known side effects.

High Dosage Laser Therapy (Dio Wave)
HDLT is a form of treatment that provides a penetrating laser light energy deep into the body to reach damaged cells and tissues. Here in the office, we use it to treat all sorts of pain, including neck, back, shoulder, hip, knee pain, as well as other joint related pains. Laser treatment has been shown to reduce inflammation, thereby placing less pain on pain receptor. In addition, HDLT increases blood flow to the area and has been shown to activate stem cells, leading to quicker recovery. Some results are generally felt after the first session or two. Most patients experience maximum benefits between 6-12 treatments. The treatment is fairly quick and, though a little uncomfortable, painless. (Visit themiraclewave.com for more information.

DRX 9000 offers state-of-the-art spinal decompression treatment alongside a three-stage physical therapy program to restore function and get you back in action. The DRX technology uses angled distraction specific to each cervical intervertebral disc segment, applying about 80-90% of pull to a single disc segment, resulting in more effective reversal of the disease process. In addition, the software in the DRX program creates an intermittent disc distraction, a major key component in restoring discal hydration and health.
Studies have shown the DRX 9000 therapy to be 89.9% effective in relieving low back pain, which may include a ruptured or herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, and or facet syndrome. Not every patient is a candidate for DRX. An evaluation with Dr. Ozar is necessary to determine if DRX is a good fit for your treatment plan.
