A variety of treatments are available in our office. Here is a list of some of the services our doctors may utilize in your plan to help you obtain optimal care and the best results for your particular issues.
Acupuncture is an effective, non-invasive alternative to Western medicine and has been around for over 4000 years. Acupuncture promotes healing, decreases pain and strengthens the whole body. An excellent support for injuries, it is also an effective treatment for various internal disorders such as anxiety, headaches, and digestive complaints. Fine, sterile, single use needles are inserted into strategic points on the body to relieve pain and improve body function. Inserting needles into specific areas along certain energy 'pathways' is thought to rebalance the flow of energy or life force know as "Qi" (pronounced CHEE).
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing with other standard methods of diagnosis. The doctor using AK finds a muscle that is unbalanced and then attempts to determine why that muscle is not functioning properly. Treatments may involve specific joint manipulation, various myofascial therapies, cranial techniques, meridian and acupuncture skills, clinical nutrition, dietary management, evaluating environmental irritants and various reflex procedures. AK uses the Triad of Health: That is Chemical, Mental and Structural factors that balance the major health categories. The triad of health is interactive and all sides must be evaluated for the underlying cause of problems. A health problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides. For example, a chemical imbalance can cause mental symptoms. AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad’s balance and direct therapy towards the imbalance side or sides.
ART is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, ligaments, fascia, tendons and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles. Over used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in affected areas. This scar binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes’ tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause decreased motion, loss strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may feel tingling, numbness and weakness. Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons ligaments and nerve tissues. Combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements treats abnormal tissues. These treatment protocols -over 500 specific moves- are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient, ART is not a cookie cutter approach.
