Treatment Options at Dynamic Health & Pain Management
You can achieve two goals should stem cell therapy be a viable option to treat your condition:
- Body rejuvenation
- Tissue function regeneration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP highly concentrate the platelets in your blood, encouraging your body to make a quicker and fuller recover from injury when injected. This is typically a procedure best suited for athletes and physically active people.
Adipose Tissue Therapy
Adipose tissue — once separated from unwanted oils, lipids, and fluids — can be concentrated in the same way as PRP. It can be injected into the affected area.
Bone Marrow Aspiration
Best for patients 60 years of age and older, this therapy removes soft tissue from inside your bone and concentrate the stem cells within it.
You benefit from state-of-the-art equipment that uses pneumatic power via a small compressor and a fitted vest to lift a portion of your body weight off of you.
This lets your body perform low-impact kinetic exercises safely — speeding up your recovery.
Active Traction Therapy
(Unweighted Walking / Running)
This treatment interrupts the acute pain cycle, takes pressure off discs, increases your proper range of motion, and reinforces the body’s proper function. Think of this as inversion therapy without the dangers of placing people upside-down.
This type of therapy affects most of your body, including, but not limited to, the fascia (sheath around your tissues), joints, bones, muscles, and ligaments.
Whole Body Vibration
You’ll improve your muscle strength, power, and flexibility. You may also re-educate neuromuscular function, as well as increase metabolism and bone mineralization. All of this is accomplished through low amplitude, low frequency mechanical stimulation to exercise musculoskeletal structures.
Variable Vibration Therapy
You can enjoy a relaxation from muscle spasms and tendon and ligament damage, an increased range of movement and flexibility, and slowed scar tissue formation. This is accomplished by focusing on a specific area of the body.
Your back pain is likely the result of spinal compression. This can also cause neuropathic pain, such as headaches. We provide disc and facet traction therapy: it helps decrease pain and inflammation, as well as increases a range of motion and rehydrates spinal discs.
Our healthcare professionals will use tration to apply a force that draws two adjacent bones apart from each other to increase their shared joint space. In the process, it also stretches the soft tissue that surrounds the joint.
In your spine, the elongation traction provides allows facet joints to slide, increases circulation and relieves pressure on the spinal cord and its nerve roots.
- Limited range of motion
- Fluid and swelling
- Muscle spasms
At Dynamic Health and Pain Management, we use electrotherapy to increase nutrient absorption for tissues and re-educate and reprogram your muscles. Different conditions require different types of care. That’s why whe offer three electrotherapy methods at our clinic.
Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy restores normal frequencies within the cells. This results in less pain and inflammation while increasing functionality.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulators (TENS)
You can manage your pain with a TENS unit, a handheld device used at home that produces an electrical current to stimulate nerves. Every TENS has electrodes that you place around the painful area, which allows you to adjust the intensity of the stimulation.
Interferential Current (IFC)
You could also opt for IFC. This device modulates a high frequency carrier waveform with the same signal a TENS unit produces — except the it provides a deeper form of electrical stimulation.
You need to be flexible. And it’s a continual process because flexibility worsens with age, increasing the chance you’ll experience acute or chronic back pain. This, of course, complicates performing everyday activities.
Do you ever slouch? Lean? Tilt your head down?
There are many movements and posture habits that lead to reduced mobility of joints. Our balance and coordination therapy involves the vestibular system — a fancy term for the part of your inner ear that helps with balance.
While staying active and regularly stretching help prevent mobility loss, you sometimes need a little extra help.
This therapy measures your body’s muscular function. We can determine how well you can stretch your lower back, upper back, hamstrings, shoulders, chest, and more in an unassisted, controlled, and safe manner.
Vestibular Analysis and Training
This is a comprehensive approach to evaluating and treating patients with complaints of dizziness, balance deficits, and motion sensitivity.
Natural Injection Therapy
If you’re not a doctor, it’s not likely you’ve heard “myofascial trigger point.” That’s why we decided to term it Natural Injection Therapy: this helps areas of the muscle that develop hyper-sensitive zones due to accumulation of toxins and other byproducts of an injury.
Video fluoroscopy can help confirm the source of your pain and deliver the medication into spinal areas with much greater accuracy. That means we get to keep you safe.
You can get help through nerve blocks and epidural steroid blocks. What does that mean? We can inject medicine into or around a nerve or into the spine, interrupting how pain signals are sent to your brain. These blocks can be used for several purposes:
- Determine the source of pain
- Treat painful conditions
- Predict how pain will respond to long-term treatments
- Short-term pain relief after surgery or other procedure
Facet Blocks— Alleviates swelling in the joints and allows vertebrae to properly move with each other. This blocks the pain coming from the small joints in the neck, which can cause arthritic pain.
Peripheral Nerve Blocks — Treats areas of pain away from the spine, such as shoulders, knees, elbows, and wrists.
Diagnostic, Selective Nerve Root Blocks and Epidural Steroid Blocks — Determines if a specific spinal nerve root is the source of pain and, if so, reduces the inflammation to decrease or relieve the pain.
MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Here’s what it basically does for you — light energy stimulates inter-cellular activity among damaged cells. This reduces pain and quicken recovery. Once the cells have recovered, the healing process is completed.
You can see these benefits from this form of therapy:
- Rapid relief of pain
- Strong anti-inflammatory effect
- Timely healing of sprains and strains
- Rapid recovery of structural integrity
- Immediate improvement of local blood circulation
- Rapid repair of superficial injuries, such as wounds and ulcers
Most likely, you’ll feel a cumulative effect, which means that you will continue to see and feel improvement as you go through the treatment plan. It is critical that you complete the course of recommended treatments or symptoms are likely to re-occur.
The spine consists of 24 articulating vertebrae and 9 fused vertebrae. When you experience back pain, it’s often difficult to pinpoint it. Our state-of-the-art computerized spinal analysis and mobilization device measures how stiff the tissue of each spinal joint. From there, it performs painless adjustments on specific vertebrae while the patient is standing, sitting, or lying down.
The information gathered from this is charted graphically on a computer monitor, which allows us to see improvement in joint function over time.
ARP Trainers use a bioelectrical current, in coordination with exercise techniques, to help you speed up your body’s natural recuperative ability. This tech is based on the premise that injury is the result of the muscle’s inability to absorb force.
Here are some of the benefits you’ll get from the ARP:
- Relaxation of muscle spasms
- Prevention and retardation of disuse atrophy
- Increase of local blood circulation
- Muscle re-education
- Maintaining and increasing range of motion
We want you to get the advantages of interactive and customizable rehabilitation treatments. In pain management, one size certainly does not fit all. Our Monitored Rehab System (MRS) is a revolutionary technology — a functional, dynamic cable system that helps to rehabilitate, strengthen and test upper body extremity strength, proprioceptive function and neuromuscular control.
So what does that mean? The MRS cable system can treat neck pain, shoulder pain, mid-to-lower back pain, and arm pain.
I am truly happy and satisfied with Dynamic Health and have been recommending their services to all of my friends who have noticed my transformation and wants the same. The results are speaking for themselves each and everyday!!”
