INTAP - Integrated Non-Traditional Acupunctue Procedures. INTAP is a non-invasive needle-free technique applied to medically recognized myofascial trigger points and paraspinal points to accelerate the body's natural self-healing mechanisms. Dr. Gold uses manual and mechanical adjusting, deep percussive vibrations, applied microcurrents, and pulsed laser modalities to achieve clinically effective outcomes. Dr. Gold carries a Georgia Board certification for therapeutic modality use. Much of Dr. Gold's training in the chiropractic applications of these techniques have been through the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture.
We use a gentle low force spinal adjustment method called Activator. This technique uses a series of isolation tests and structural analysis to determine specific areas in the back or neck under biomechanical dysfunction and then fixes them. The advantage here is a gentle method that does not require heavy manipulation of the back or neck area.
Extremity adjustment or manipulation is used to correct joint fixations anywhere in the body other than the spine. This includes many troublesome areas, such as the TMJ, ribs, shoulders, wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and the bones in the foot.
Therapeutic Ultrasound sends deep heat into sore muscles by generating ultrasonic waves into painful trigger points, muscle fiber adhesions, old scar tissue and muscle spasms. The application of the treatment includes point - specific therapeutic massage.
Dr. Gold uses the same technology that medical professionals use to deliver a non-surgical nerve block to alleviate pain. Dr. Gold's technology has built in computerized protocols to treat a wide range of conditions such as: Osteo-arthritis, chronic radicular pain, accelerated wound healing, muscle re-education and pain control.

1. Wound Care
