Medical Modalities:

We Highly Recommend The Following:

Have your medical needs looked after by a doctor trained in the following modalities. Most, will recommend that you get off of prescription drugs and treat your symptoms, with natural medicines. Most people will need some vitamins and nutrients to correct their nutritional deficiency, which in turn will eliminate the symptoms. Allopathic doctors will only treat your symptoms, never the true disease, which is a nutritional and hormonal deficiency.

Hormonal deficiencies are almost always overlooked by allopathic doctors. The first thing that needs to be checked are your thyroid hormones. With a comprehensive thyroid test, it will be determined that you do, or do not, need natural thyroid medication. Once the thyroid is functioning properly, the next step will be to get a saliva hormone test to check your progesterone, testosterone, estrone, estradiol, dht, dhea and for women it is recommended, that they also test estriol. Keep in mind that it takes both good, balanced nutrition and balanced hormones to maintain a healthful immune system.

Balanced Nutrition And Balanced Hormones = A Healthful Immune System.

When Searching For A Doctor, Look For Doctors That Practice The Following Modalities:

Medical Doctors M.D. M.P.H.

Physicians who become diplomats of the American Board of Preventive Medicine are uniquely trained in both clinical and population-based medicine. Residency training requires a minimum of one year of training in an accredited clinical program, an academic year that almost always leads to a master's degree in public health (M.P.H.), and a practicum year that provides trainees with experience in the application of the knowledge and skills of preventive medicine in diverse settings.

These doctors tend to write few prescriptions, as they do not want to just treat symptoms.

Chiropractic Doctors D.C.

Although their main method of treatment is the spinal adjustment, many chiropractors also use other therapies to treat their patients. The following is a brief description of some of the most common therapies chiropractors offer.

Therapeutic Exercise

Chiropractors commonly prescribe specific strengthening exercises for their patients with back, neck, and extremity problems. These exercises can decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability and range of motion, and protect against new or recurring injuries.

Your chiropractor will show you how to do the exercises and supervise you until you are comfortable doing them on you own. It's important to keep up with your exercises as prescribed (similarly to drug prescriptions). Studies show that individuals who follow their exercise instructions heal faster than those who do not.

Therapeutic Stretches

Following an injury, therapeutic stretching is an important way to prevent scar tissue from forming. Even after the injury has healed, maintaining a regular stretching program helps keep tissues flexible, increases mobility, and protects you from new injuries. Like exercise, your chiropractor will instruct you on proper stretching techniques and will supervise you until you are comfortable enough to do them on your own.

Traction Massage

In chiropractic traction massage, the patient lies face up with a pillow under the knees. A system of rollers then moves up and down the spine, gently stretching and massaging the muscles of the back. Traction-massage usually is performed just before an adjustment to relax the spine, making the adjustment easier to perform, more comfortable, and more beneficial.

Many chiropractors also use more traditional traction in which traction devices are applied to elongate areas of the spine. This treatment helps separate the vertebrae resulting in disc decompression, reduced nerve root pressure, and decreased pain.

Soft Tissue And Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps improve circulation and reduce pain. Chiropractors are trained in a variety of massage therapy modalities. The need and benefits of these therapies vary from patient to patient. Your chiropractor will choose the best method for your specific needs.

Physical Therapy Modalities

Your Chiropractor will talk to you about your lifestyle choices, help you sort through and identify unhealthy health habits, and give you practical strategies to deal with and manage them.

As you can see, Chiropractic Medicine is more than just spinal manipulations. Chiropractors use a variety of treatment modalities to help the body to heal itself and return the patient to a pain-free and healthy life.

Licenced Acupuncturist L.A., O.M.D.

Medical Acupuncture is acupuncture that has been successfully incorporated into medical or allied health practices in Western countries. It is derived from Asian and European sources, and is practiced in both pure and hybrid forms. Therapeutic insertion of solid needles in various combinations and patterns is the foundation of medical acupuncture. The choice of needle patterns can be based on traditional principles such as encouraging the flow of qi (pronounced chee), a subtle vivifying energy, through classically described acupuncture channels, modern concepts such as recruiting neuroanatomical activities in segmental distributions, or a combination of these two principles. The adaptability of classical and hybrid acupuncture approaches in Western medical environments is the key to their clinical success and popular appeal.

The basic premise of Chinese Medicine is somewhat different from what we are used to in the western world. Often in our approach to disease, or even life, we see the situation in black and white, with one element the force to be defeated and the other the pure and the good. While there is a concern in oriental medicine with "evil Qi" (a phrase that can cover a multitude of ailments), we see the evil as an imbalance of natural and necessary elements. The Yin/Yang symbol illustrates this harmonious balance between apparent opposites. The two forces are shown in constant motion, eternally changing places. Within each is the seed of the other. Doctors of Oriental Medicine work to bring these elements back into balance for the smooth functioning of the entire person. This is one reason that acupuncture is considered "holistic" - in an attempt to treat the entire person, not only the primary cause or the symptoms of that cause.
