FAQs on Our Advanced Physical Medical Services & Pain Relief Therapies

More About Advanced Physical Medicine Services

What Is Physical Medicine?

Physical medicine, also known as rehabilitation medicine, aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Rather than focusing on a "cure", physical medicine strives to help patients maximize their independence in their daily activities.

 

How Is An Exact Treatment Prescribed?

After an initial evaluation, our team of healthcare professionals will custom-design a combination of medical pain relief techniques, using natural and botanical agents that lower pain and inflammation in the body. Then, using chiropractic and massage therapy to further speed up your recovery period, we can get you out of pain faster and move you into active rehabilitation for your specific health issue(s).

 

What Will Your Treatments Focus On?

We focus on not only relieving chronically inflamed and painful areas, but also rehabilitating weakened muscles of the spine to strengthen them and aid in their stability. This concentration on the reconditioning of your spine and mobility will help alleviate your pain and aid in recovering from fatigue as well. 

We also always include a session on home exercise and home therapies to aid in your recovery time. These unique exercises pay special attention to increasing the strength of your spine and enhancing your activity and flexibility.

 

 

More About Peripheral Neuropathy Services

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy? 

"Peripheral neuropathy" refers to conditions that occur when nerves that help the brain and spinal cord communicate with the rest of the body are damaged or diseased. This nerve disorder causes pain and numbness for millions of Americans. 

 

When Should I Talk To A Doctor?

You should seek medical care right away if you notice unusual tingling, weakness or pain in your hands or feet. Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best chance of controlling your symptoms. Additionally, it's imperative that nerve disorders are resolved as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage. Unfortunately, many people suffer from pain for years, not realizing their symptoms may be due to Peripheral Neuropathy. 

 

What Are Your Specific Treatment Options?

If you suffer from pain, numbness or pins and needles in your legs and feet, these symptoms can be addressed at Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation. Our practice strives to go beyond the traditional approaches to treating this disorder (which include physical therapy, exercises for peripheral neuropathy, pain-relieving medications, anti-seizure medications, and topical treatments). We do this with a newly FDA-cleared treatment. 

The treatment features a combination of advanced FDA-cleared treatments with breakthrough technology that aids in healing the damaged nerves. The effects of this program can be felt on the first few visits. This treatment restores, stabilizes, and rebuilds the nerves in your extremities. The treatment has also been effective in addressing painful symptoms of arthritis, MS, and other forms of chronic pain. Patients generally feel relief physically throughout the treatment period and even feel better emotionally after experiencing a reduction in pain. 

Our FDA approved pain therapy is provided on-site, and you’ll receive ongoing support from our physicians throughout your treatment. You may also be prescribed exercises for peripheral neuropathy care that are designed to complement and support our other therapies. Always follow guidelines on these exercises to maximize your recovery. 

 

Are There Any Treatment Limitations?

All reasonable efforts will be made to determine if you are a good candidate for our FDA approved pain therapy before getting started. There are many factors which determine the level of pain relief which an individual may experience and how long it may take to achieve such relief. As such, it is important to note that participation in this pain therapy can not guarantee a specific amount of pain relief, as results will vary for each individual.

More About Supartz Knee Therapy Services

What Is Supartz Natural Knee Injection Therapy?

This line of treatment was created to reduce inflammation of your knee pain (without traditional pain relievers) while also helping you avoid unwanted knee surgery or replacement. The injections provide the knee with the ability to restore and heal natural lubrication and cushioning. The results will alleviate your knee pain, improve your mobility, and will get you back to your normal activity level(s). 

 

Why Might I Need Knee Injections?

Supartz helps in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis - specifically in patients who did not find enough relief with conservative treatments, i.e. exercise, physical therapy, pain medications, mobility aids, and hot or cold packs.

 

What Is In The Injections? 

Supartz injections are a viscous (thick) sterile mixture made from highly purified hyaluronan. This naturally occurring substance is typically found in the cartilage of joints, as well as in the Synovial fluid (the fluid within the joints). 

Hyaluronan normally acts as both a lubricant as well as a shock absorber in healthy joints. However, in patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, the hyaluronan grows thinner over time and loses its ability to protect the joint. This leads to degeneration, inflammation, and pain of the joint.

If you or a family member has been suffering from chronic knee pain, then you may be a good candidate for this breakthrough FDA approved natural knee injection therapy that is painless for arthritis knee pain relief.

 

More About Trigger Point Therapy Services

What Are Trigger Points?

When most people talk about having a “knot” in their neck or back, this is what they are referring to. Trigger points are pressure points that have developed within a section of muscle. These points have become too tight and create a tender area in a muscle that causes generalized musculoskeletal pain, particularly when overstimulated (i.e. when moved "wrong", during high levels of activity, etc.).

 

What Are The Symptoms?

Trigger points, or knots, can result in pain in the direct area, referred pain, muscle weakness, and restricted movement and flexibility of the spine. Many different parts of the body may be affected by this issue. We see lower back trigger points, shoulder trigger points, and so on.

 

How Can Your Team’s Trigger Point Therapy Help?

Our team at Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation specializes in treating this condition through trigger point injection therapy. The injection contains a local anesthetic or saline, and may also include a corticosteroid. With the injection, the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated. These injections are always performed by a medical doctor, with treatment only taking a few minutes.

Targeted trigger point massage is also available at Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation, as this treatment can complement the initial work of an injection and maximize trigger point release.
