A bone growth stimulator is a medical device that delivers low-level electrical stimulation to promote healing and increase bone density. It is commonly used for individuals with conditions such as osteoporosis, fractures, or slow-healing bones. The stimulation helps to enhance the body’s natural healing process and can lead to improved bone growth and strength. It is a non-invasive treatment option and is typically used in conjunction with other forms of therapy or treatment. Book a session today and experience the difference for yourself.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT
A healthcare provider will assess treatment planning to initialize the Program of Care. The assessment includes the following: taking a complete medical history, subjective evaluation of the primary complaints related to the injury, a thorough physical examination including range of motion evaluation, orthopedic testing, muscle testing, and neurological testing. The healthcare provider will also administer outcome measures to obtain baseline measures of pain and function. These may include but are not limited to the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), the Oswestry Disability Index, the Neck Disability Index (NDI), and the Lower Extremity Functional Scale (LEFS), or the Upper Extremity Functional Scale (UEFS).
The healthcare provider will also assess for possible Yellow flags, which can indicate psychological risk factors that may impact their recovery due to behavior, expectations, and recovery from injury. Finally, a discussion on achievable goals from the treatment program will be discussed, and the responsibilities of the person served and the healthcare provider throughout the program.

BONE GROWTH STIMULATION DEVICES
Bone growth stimulation devices use ultrasound to deliver low intensity pulsed ultrasound signals to the fracture site. This device delivers an acoustic pressure wave, which provides just enough mechanical force to help improve circulation and facilitate new bone growth. Studies show that fresh fractures will heal 38% faster with the use of this device compared to those that have not been treated with ultrasound. Outcomes are dependent on the type and location of the fracture however the advantages of using LIPUS devices for treatment are established.
Devices that use magnetic fields, such as the portable and battery-powered bone stimulator, are useful in the non-invasive treatment of non-union fractures that are acquired secondary to trauma. All vertebrae and flat bones are excluded, however for other types of non-union fractures, clinical studies show that patients experience on average a 60.7% increased chance of healing with the use of this form of bone stimulation. Recovery occurred an average of 29.3 months from injury.
CONTINUOUS COLD COMPRESSION THERAPY
Game Ready is a best-in class sports medicine and orthopedic medical device that helps athletes and patients recover faster from injury or orthopedic surgery. The system uses ACCEL® Technology to set a new standard in recovery, synergistically combining active compression and cold therapies into a revolutionary treatment system that gives healthcare providers the power to accelerate the body’s natural repair mechanism.
WHO CAN ENROLL
- Diagnosis of one or more fractures may or may not have required surgical intervention.
- Multiple sites of soft tissue injury as a result of a traumatic incident.
This care program has some exclusion criteria, which are significant red flags that may prevent the individual from being eligible to participate in this program. Please consult a healthcare practitioner or contact us to confirm eligibility.
WHEN WILL I BE DISCHARGED
The duration of the Trauma and Fractures Program is determined after the initial assessment and depends on the needs of each person served, including the severity of the injury, and may vary based on factors that may delay recovery. One or more of the following criteria must be met to be discharged from the Trauma and Fracture Program:
- The person served has achieved the goals established with the rehabilitation team.
- The services of the healthcare providers are no longer necessary or appropriate.
- The person’s progress has reached a plateau, and they no longer benefit from the program’s services.
- When the person served cannot tolerate the demands of the program and the appropriate referrals have been made.
