6 Holistic Medicine Treatments Offered in Our Office

Posted on: March 16, 2018

Holistic medicine is an approach to health care that seeks to evaluate what is causing patients to have less than optimal health, how those issues are impacting all areas of the body and what treatments can help bring about healing. We approach each health problem as a problem that needs a solution, rather than symptoms that need treatment.

Thus, we often recommend multiple solutions for a patient to consider. In our office, some of the treatment options include:

1. Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of medicine that the world health organization recognized as being effective for treating a variety of conditions including allergies, asthma, anxiety, morning sickness, migraines, etc. We invite patients to give us a call for more information about acupuncture and to see if it is right for them. If not, it may still be possible that acupuncture could help but it would be important to schedule an appointment to discuss this further.

2. Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is the treatment of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system and nervous system. So, if the nerves running through the spine or one vertebra are out of alignment, it can lead to back pain. The alignment issues can also cause problems in other areas of the body such as the intestines. We bring the spine into alignment to improve the health and well-being of our patients.

3. Compression therapy

To address pain in the legs, knees or to improve circulation, we often recommend compression boot therapy. The therapy itself works to increase venous return which accelerates the body's reabsorption of the elements that cause soreness and fatigue in the muscles. This makes it an ideal solution for athletes and anyone who has soreness. This is a holistic medicine treatment that uses something natural and noninvasive to promote healing and recovery instead of medication.

4. Rehabilitation services

Physical therapy and rehabilitation are important after an injury. Treating the injury itself is only part of the battle. Without rehabilitation, it may be difficult for a person to regain the same level of strength or mobility from their past. We help injured patients to experience a full recovery by offering comprehensive rehabilitation services.

5. Cupping therapy

Tapping therapy is another form of ancient Chinese medicine. It is done topically on the surface of the skin and can be used to treat soft tissue injuries, soreness, reduce fluid retention and even help with asthma conditions.

6. Massage therapy

We often recommend massage therapy in conjunction with any of our other treatments because it can be incredibly relaxing while also promoting an overall sense of well-being. Massage can improve circulation and reduce muscle tension and pain as well.
