Pain Relief Program
Facilitated by Dr Patricia Holl, DC
A comprehensive evaluation is performed including a physical examination and review of medical records to identify an individualized 4-8 week program consisting of 1-3 different treatments a week. The impact of combining these synergistic modalities in a definitive time period, provides a powerful experience of pain relief and increased quality of life. Patients benefit from a diversity of therapies, resulting in less pain medication and the ability to envision true rehabilitation.
Chiropractic Care: Non-surgical, drug-free options for improving the health of bone, disc, nerve, muscle, and soft-tissue problems related to spinal immobility. Frequently used in combination with conventional and complementary medical disciplines such as orthopedics, neurology, physical therapy, and naturopathy.
Acupuncture: The practice of inserting needles into specific body points to improve health and well-being. The effectiveness is supported by more than two-thousand years of practice and research worldwide.
Therapeutic Massage: A treatment involving manual pressure on muscle and connective tissue to reduce pain, enhance function, and promote relaxation and well-being.
Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT): The process of injecting regenerative fluids into tissue to restore health and function. RIT is effective for the relief of chronic musculoskeletal pain and is a great alternative to surgery, cortisone shots, and narcotic pain medicine.
