Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment method that involves inserting very thin, single-use, sterilized needles into specific points – called acupuncture points – all over the body. The needles are so fine that you barely feel them go into your skin, and the entire process is comfortable and extremely relaxing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma therapy (sometimes incorrectly called “plasma rich platelet therapy”) is a safe, natural, and effective alternative treatment to cortisone injections and can often eliminate the need for surgery. PRP uses your body’s own platelets (extracted from your blood) to enhance your body’s own healing process for injuries to bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy, or “proliferation therapy,” is used to aid in the growth of new connective tissue, particularly to provide strength to ligaments and tendons that may have become weak due to injury or degeneration. In Prolotherapy, a dextrose solution is injected  into the injured tissue, generating an inflammatory response in order to increase  the flow of blood and nutrients to the area and initiate the body’s natural healing cascade. Prolotherapy is a safe and effective alternative to cortisone injections.

Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy

IV nutrient therapy is the delivery of nutrients – vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc. – directly into a vein. This allows the nutrients to bypass the digestive system and significantly enhances both the amount you can tolerate as well as the amount you can absorb.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy – Interferential Current (IFC) & Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

Electrical stimulation (E-stim) is the use of a low intensity electrical current to control pain. Interferential Current (IFC) and Trans-cutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) differ in the intensity of the electrical current, with IFC generally being more tolerable. There are two possible explanations as to how – and why – E-stim is effective. The first is that it reduces the transmission of pain signals to the spinal cord. The other explanation is that the electrical current stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Either way, E-stim has proven to be an effective method of treating several different types of pain. Both IFC and TENS therapy can benefit most types of acute and chronic pain, especially postoperative, cardiopulmonary, obstetric, and neurological. It can benefit joint pain associated with arthritis and may help with low back pain and headaches. E-stim is also useful for treating incontinence, for regaining motor control after a stroke, and for controlling nausea in patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Lipomassage – Massage Therapy and Cellulite Reduction

Lipomassage is a non-invasive, FDA approved method of reducing cellulite. It can also be used to help eliminate fat from stubborn areas, firm and tone skin, relieve muscle pain and spasm, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and massage tense muscles.

A combination of rollers and suction is used to massage and shape the skin and its underlying structures. This process helps to remove dimpling, increase blood flow and mobilize fat cells. The size of the rollers, the direction they spin, the speed at which they spin, and the amount of suction can all be manipulated to meet your comfort level and your goals.

Lipomassage therapy can benefit anyone looking to reduce cellulite, eliminate stubborn fat (stomach and love handles for men; hips, thighs and butt for women), reduce lines and wrinkles, or massage away aches, pains and tension. The actual treatment is very relaxing  and the intensity can always be adjusted to suit your needs.

Therapeutic Ultrasound & Phonophoresis

Therapeutic ultrasound is the use of ultrasonic waves to heal injuries and breakdown scar tissue. Ultrasound therapy works by sending ultrasonic waves through the skin to the underlying damaged tissues. This causes localized heating which leads to tissue relaxation, increased blood flow and the breakdown of scar tissue. Ultrasound therapy is effective for treating tendonitis and other inflammatory conditions, swelling, muscle spasm, deep scar tissue, and it may promote the healing of bone fractures.

Phonophoresis is the use of ultrasound to deliver topical medications into tissues below the skin (instead of injecting them). With phonophoresis, the medication – typically an anti-inflammatory – is applied to the skin and ultrasound is used to drive it into the underlying areas. This therapy is most often utilized for inflammatory conditions including tendonitis, tennis/golfer’s elbow, etc.
