Chiropractic is one of the more widely used and accepted practices within alternative medicine. The level of acceptance in the United States has increased in recent years, as partially proven by widespread health insurance coverage for chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can be the answer for patients seeking relief from their musculoskeletal complaints and has been a successfully employed treatment for a variety of conditions and complaints. Many types of musculoskeletal conditions are the reason patients seek out the treatment from a chiropractor. Now, by incorporating a team approach with multiple disciplines in the same building, we are able to provide collaborative and comprehensive treatment for the overall wellness of our patients. This results in better outcomes, faster recovery and returning patients to their activities of daily living.
For many patients with debilitating degeneration treatment options are very limited: steroid injections, joint replacement surgery (and replacement alternatives), physical therapy, etc. However at the Advanced Medical &Wellness Center we provide a cutting-edge procedure known as a stem cell injection.
This particular stem cell treatment takes advantage of the body’s own ability to heal and regenerate itself. Once injected into the target degenerated or injured joint, these stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, similar to cortisone and steroid shots, however, this stem cell therapy goes far beyond the benefits of standard “injection therapy.” Where traditional injections only temporarily decrease pain in the joint, the stem cells actually regenerate the tissues within the joint!
We now offer digital x rays. What this means is that we can provide our patients with an exact visual diagnosis by analyzing their x rays digitally using our new state of the art digital x ray analysis. With this technology we are able to provide the best and most precise treatment paths for you moving forward.
As a patient you’ll get a new and better understanding of what exactly is going on and how we are going to treat it. This type of modern x ray analysis is bringing our chiropractic treatments to the next level.
What is Dry Needling? Dry Needling treats both chronic and acute pain situations. Sometimes muscles will go into miniature spasms called trigger points. Because they are smaller than full muscle spasms you may not know you have them unless you specifically press on the point. The nerves that are wrapped up in this miniature spasm can send pain signals to other parts of the body. For example a trigger point in the upper shoulder can send pain down the arm. Dry Needling allows us to "discharge" the electrical impulse sent by the nerve by gently placing a very small needle into the trigger point itself. This allows the nerve to calm down and for the trigger point to relax. This results in a reduction of your pain, better movement in the affected muscles, and a much better enjoyment and quality of your life.
Relatively unknown to most people living in the West until recently, cupping therapy is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in China since around 1000 B.C. Some records show that variations of cupping practices might actually be much older — possibly dating as far back as 3000 B.C.
And for good reason. Cupping therapy has a host of health benefits that can often outweigh modern medicine techniques. Cupping therapy is also the #1 treatment for plantar fasciitis.
One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative practices like cupping therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do. In fact, there’s really no downside to trying alternative practices like cupping, since studies show they can help boost immune function and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs.

Until recently, the most well-known compound in cannabis was delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the most active ingredient in marijuana.
Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but the compounds have different effects. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. However, it does appear to produce significant changes in the body and has been found to have medical benefits.
