RockPods® Cupping

At Legros Chiropractic & Rehab in Katy, Texas, the RockPods® cupping method is used to promote blood flow and reduce tension. Derived from traditional Chinese glass cupping, RockPods® are a medical-grade silicone cupping method that offers a modern, functional application. This allows the practitioner to more freely glide the pod across the skin to manipulate tissue by using decompressive pressure to lift, separate, and stretch underlying soft tissue. RockPods® are typically used on the neck, shoulders, back, sacrum, hip, thigh, calves and upper arms to treat the following conditons:

  • Treat chronic pain
  • Relieve tension
  • Sedate the nervous system
  • Ease musculoskeletal pain and discomfort
  • Treat sports injuries, mobility and movement dysfunctions  


Kinesio® Taping

Kinesio® tape is a rehabilitative taping method designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricing range of motion. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, Kineso® tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The lifting action forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the target areas.

Dr. Lacie has been a certified practitioner in evaluation, assessment, and application of Kineso® tape since 2012.


Electrical Stimulation (E-Stim)

Electrical muscle stimulation (E-stim) is a treatment method often used for rehabilitation after an injury. Pads are connected to an E-Stim device on the skin over the affected soft tissue. The pads (electrodes) deliver controlled electircal impulses that vary in intensity based on the device's settings, the treatment area, and the patient's comfort.

It works by delivering electrical impulses to nerve endings in the affected area, soothing the nerves, providing pain relief, and potentially increasing blood flow for accelerated tissue healing. The repetitive contracting and relaxing motion of muscles during E-stim therapy strengthens and helps repair soft tissue, particularly in muscles that are weak, tight, or injured.

Many elite athletes use electrical muscle stimulation after intense physical activity. It can help reduce swelling and minimize soreness, which can affect performance. Additionally, athletes who incorporate E-stim in their chiropractic care between activities often experience less muscle stiffness. The low levels of electrical currents help keep muscles warm during rest periods.

E-stim treatments are generally very safe. Side effects are rare, but may include redness at the electrode site, irritation from the adhesive, or temporary minor numbness after treatment. For most people, the muscle contractions are barely noticeable or may resemble painless, involuntary twitches. Many patients find E-stim treatments both relaxing and therapeutic.

Ultrasound uses sound waves to achieve therapeutic effects such as reducing swelling, enhancing blood flow, and alleviating pain and stiffness. Ultrasound therapy is frequently employed to deliver deep heating to soft tissue structures within the body. By increasing circulation to tendons, muscles, or ligaments, deep heating is believed to promote the healing process. Elevating tissue temperature with ultrasound also aids in pain reduction. Furthermore, deep heating can enhance the flexibility of tight muscles and tendons. For instance, individuals with shoulder pain diagnosed with a frozen shoulder may undergo ultrasound therapy to improve the extensibility of surrounding tissues before engaging in range of motion exercises. This preparatory step can enhance the shoulder's ability to stretch and improve mobility.
