Prolotherapy and Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy

Our innovative treatments are used by Olympic and Professional athletes such as Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Kobe Bryant, Rafael Nadal and Hines Ward.  They have all used Regenerative Medicine  such as Prolotherapy and Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) Therapy to heal and recover from career-ending injuries.

Regenerative Medicine will assist your body into healing itself naturally by repairing and replacing tissue or loss of joint function due to age, disease, damage, or birth defects. 

It does more than mask the pain.  It helps you heal.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated in China many centuries ago and soon spread to Japan, the Korean peninsula and elsewhere in Asia. Acupuncture is widely used in health care stems in the countries of this region; it is officially recognized by governments and well received by the general public.
​​
Although acupuncture was introduced to Europe as long ago as the early seventeenth century, skepticism about its effectiveness continues to exist in countries where modern Western medicine is the foundation of health care, especially in those where acupuncture has not yet been widely practiced. People question whether acupuncture has a true therapeutic effect, or whether it works merely through the placebo effect, the power of suggestion, or the enthusiasm with which patients wish for a cure.

Picture

In Chinese medicine, stress, anxiety, depression or any strong emotion interrupts the smooth flow of energy throughout the body.  According to Chinese medical theory, energy flows through our body through a network of”roads”, almost like a highway system.  Stress, anger, or any intense emotion acts like a traffic jam, blocking the free flow of energy in the body.  For example, many people who are very stressed out complain of upper back, shoulder and neck pain.  This is because stress is causing tension in those areas, blocking the free flow of energy, causing pain, tightness, and often leading to headaches.

In a highway system, when there is road construction or an accident, traffic may be also backed up on other secondary roads that feed into or out of the affected area.  This is true in the body, too.  Stress may affect many other parts of the body, most notably digestion, the ability to sleep, pain conditions, and blood pressure. Stress can also aggravate an already troublesome health condition.

Through acupuncture, theses energy blockages can be addressed. Acupuncture points serve as the on and off ramps to the energy highway, and can help energy flow smoothly, and alleviate not only the symptoms of stress and anxiety, but the stress and anxiety itself.

One of the most common reasons people seek out Acupuncture therapy is for pain relief. Acupuncture can be effective for almost any type of pain including pain from acute injuries such as ankle sprains or post-operatively. It can also be effective for chronic pain like back pain, neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis and migraines.

In 2012, a study found acupuncture was better than no acupuncture or simulated acupuncture for the treatment of four chronic pain conditions:

  • Back and neck pain.
  • Osteoarthritis (your doctor may call it “degenerative joint disease” or “wear and tear arthritis)
  • Chronic headache.
  • Shoulder pain.


These studies have provided incontrovertible scientific evidence that acupuncture is more successful than placebo treatments in certain conditions. For example, the proportion of chronic pain relieved by acupuncture is generally in the range 55– 85%, which compares favorably with that of potent drugs (morphine helps in 70% of cases) and far outweighs the placebo effect (30–35%). Acupuncture treatment is safe if it is performed properly by a well-trained practitioner. Unlike many drugs, it is non-toxic, and adverse reactions are minimal. This is probably one of the chief reasons why acupuncture is so popular in the treatment of chronic pain in many countries.​

Electro-Stimulation

Picture

E-Stim is a technique in which needles are inserted on specific points along the body and those needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. E-stim uses two needles at a time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously, usually for no more than 30 minutes at a time.  It is effectively used as a pain reliever for muscle spasms/soreness and stiffness; and a treatment for neurological disorders such as paralysis, stroke rehabilitation and breakage of scar tissue.
Cupping

Picture

Cupping is one of the oldest forms of alternative healing dating back to 3000 B.C. by the Egyptians.  In China, cupping is used primarily to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma, and congestion; arthritis; gastrointestinal disorders; certain types of pain; and depression. Fleshy sites on the body, such as the back and stomach, arms and legs, are the preferred sites for treatment.

Massage oil is placed on the site of the treatment and a cotton ball is soaked in alcohol, lit, then placed inside the cup which removes all the oxygen and creates a vacuum.  The cup is placed on the patient which is anchored by the vacuum.  It draws the skin into the glass to open up the skin’s pores, which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow if qi, breaks up obstructions and create an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.  The cups will be left in place from 5 to 10 minutes.  The applied massage oil will allow me to move the cups up and down over particular acupoints or meridians.

 

Gua Sha

Picture

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which massage oil is applied to the skin and is scraped to produce light bruising to release stagnation from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.  Modern research shows Gua Sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua Sha treatment. It is used to treat pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheezing, nausea and vomiting.
