Cold laser therapy uses low-level lasers to stimulate damaged tissues, thereby enhancing the progress of healing and providing relief from pain and inflammation. Cold laser has a very good potential to ease chronic pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin and treat soft tissue injuries.
The relief and healing provided by the cold laser is due to the several mechanisms. There is increased production of the serotonin in the brain and the stimulation of the neuro-endocrine system, which promotes the sense of overall well-being. In addition, the progress of tissue repair is enhanced and pain is alleviated. When the targeted body part is exposed to the cold laser, the cells are exposed to photon energy, which increases metabolism of the cells and promotes collagen growth and muscle cells. The blood circulation improves and thus the wounds heal faster.
Cold laser treatment is highly beneficial for those who suffer from acute or chronic pain. As compared to other treatment methods, the cold laser provides certain benefits like:
- Being safe
- Cost effective
- Alternative form of treatment
- The need for surgery is reduced
Cold laser therapy is gaining in popularityt because it induces increased blood circulation to the injured area, thereby activating natural healing and treatment. For this reason, it is not only very helpful in relieving chronic back pain but also in the treatment of:
- Sports injuries
- Ligament injury
- Muscle strain
- Hair growth
- Weight loss, to an extent
- Regeneration of the nerves
- Joint injuries and pains
- Wound healing
Rapid Release Therapy
Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by surgery, trauma or repetitive stress. This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dies, dries out, constricts and becomes brittle. Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion. Adhesions can spread, entrapping nerves, causing pain and numbness or limiting range of motion. Un-diagnosed pain and restricted mobility are likely to be caused by these adhesions. Scar Tissue Therapy ™ is focused on relief of soft tissue problems caused by scar tissue adhesions. The shearing force of planar wave energy passes safely through flexible healthy tissue, but readily absorbed by the brittle, dense scar tissue.
RRT has determined the optimum frequency that resonates with the scar tissue for maximum effectiveness by using high speed video shot at 2000 frames/second. With only a 2mm stroke, this therapy is feels good and is completely safe. We believe that Scar Tissue Therapy™ is the most effective way to treat painful scar tissue. Scar Tissue Therapy is fast, painless and lasting.
Modern Pain Relief and Range of Motion Restoration
The RRT Pro is a revolutionary breakthrough in therapeutic technology. is the only High speed Vibration Therapy (HSVT) on the market. Our proprietary method of applying compression waves via arc motion directly into the tissue puts the tissue under tension with tiny high frequency shearing energy. This frequency is demonstrated in the Rapid Release Technology video and independently confirmed (Dr. Paul Nogier 1970′s) to sympathetically resonate with scar tissue. These combined effects target adhesion that underlays many indications. Additional benefits include the “Tonic Vibration Reflex” that is triggered only in this frequency range. The TVR releases opposing muscle fibers to eliminate cramps and spasms quickly and painlessly. This TVR effect is not triggered by any other portable device on the market.
The first year of RRT saw sales into all major professional sports in the US. The quick acceptance by elite athletes speaks volumes for the therapeutic value and performance enhancing properties of the RRT Pro1. See the NFL study conducted by Dr Bain, medical director of “The Athletes Compound” at Saddlebrook in Tampa Florida.
The Pro1 provides an effective non-surgical and drug-free treatment option, for a wide range of conditions, often helping those who have exhausted all other options such as medical doctors, podiatrists, chiropractic, medications, surgery, acupuncture, physical therapy and pain injections. Rapid Release is arguably the safest and most cost effective treatment on the market.
Our vibration machines produce a vibration through which energy is transferred from the platform to the body. This mechanical stimulus produces a stretch reflex which results in muscles vigorously contracting involuntarily 30 to 50 times per second.
Vibration increases the production of regenerative and repair hormones, improves blood circulation, strengthens bone tissue, improves lymph drainage and increases basal metabolic rate. All this results in more strength, more speed, more stamina, rapid recovery of muscles and tissues, increased flexibility, mobility and co-ordination, improved collagen production and fat reduction.
Vibration Training has been shown to:
Improve muscle strength, balance, flexibility and range of motion
Enhance critical blood flow through the body
Accelerate weight loss and defeat cellulite
Expedite the recovery and regeneration of damaged tissue
Enhance general wellness and quality of life
Health & Fitness
These vibrating resistance machines provide an outcome similar to and more beneficial than working out with free weights or weight– bearing equipment. Vibration training requires only 1/3 the amount of time required for conventional training and is able to achieve these results through advanced acceleration of the muscular system. Traditional resistance training methods provide resistance on a single linear axis whereas the resistance effects occur on multiple axes stimulating the entire body of fibers with a given muscle group.
The Vibrating platforms contribute to a more youthful feeling due to an increase in oxygenation, increased secretion of serotonin (the happiness hormone), mental stimulation and improved basic brain functions (such as better concentration). It also causes a dramatic spike in human Growth Hormone (HGH), key to the repair and regeneration of tissues. Decreasing cortisol levels also helps eliminate the effects of stress making the Vibration therapy a great tool for relaxation.
Both top athletes and every sport enthusiasts are always looking for better ways to train their body and get the competitive edge. The machines are scientifically calibrated to dramatically enhance sports training as well as supplemental and an alternative form of training. Within seconds, range of motion and stability are instantly increased, perfect for warming up before training.
Vibration Therapy is widely used in the medical field for the prevention and treatment of illness and injuries. It allows people with debilitating conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and stroke victims to yield the benefits of exercise while working within their personal limitations.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient’s specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges.
The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health.
Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Montrose chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Brian Miller can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Montrose community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 818-249-2300 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Advanced Lab Testing and Interpretation
If you are suffering from a chronic illness or condition, it is absolutely necessary to investigate ALL aspects of your body’s function. It’s like this…you may have a GP, an endocrinologist, a neurologist, a nutritionist, and more…each looking at test results that he or she ordered through his/her own particular “microscope,” and is not seeing the big picture but only his or her small part of the puzzle. This is probably how your care has been managed so far, with few positive changes. So, let’s say we get ALL the specific tests you need in order to get all the “puzzle pieces” in one place…so we can see the WHOLE PICTURE. Then we can find out what’s really going on with you and get busy getting you well!
There are Six Metabolic Priorities that need to be functioning normally or be corrected, or you will NEVER be healthy. They are:
Low Iron Issues (Anemias)
Blood Sugar Balance (Hypoglycemia or Insulin Resistance)
Gastrointestinal Health/Leaky Gut
Hepatic Health and Detoxification
Essential Fatty Acid Balance/Metabolism
Immune System Function******
Low Iron Issues: Hemoglobin carries oxygen to the cells where it utilized by the mitochondria in order to make ATP. If this pathway is inefficient, it will be difficult to resolve any issue naturally.
Stabilizing Blood Sugar: Disorders in blood sugar maintenance disrupt all aspects of human physiology. Glucose is converted to ATP. If this pathway is not working efficiently, most areas of human physiology will break down.
Gastrointestinal Function: Identifying the triggers for GI dysfunction is essential. Most traditional healthcare providers lack the training to identify functional issues and are unable to understand the intricately linked patterns of systemic disorders.
Hepatic Function & Detoxification: If the patient cannot convert antigenic compounds from fat-soluble to water-soluble, detoxification cannot occur. Ultimately, a person cannot get or stay healthy if he/she cannot get rid of natural and synthetic toxins in the body.
*Immune System: A dysfunctional immune system can affect a person’s ability to attain and maintain normal health. If it is discovered that a patient has an “autoimmune” condition, then all bets are off. Autoimmune conditions take priority over all other physical ailments and MUST be addressed FIRST!
So, how do we know what we (you and I) need to do to help your body heal itself, while staying away from procedures or therapeutics that can actually harm you? We test you…treat you based on those tests…retest you, using specific markers or indicators so we know we are progressing in the right direction.
By using specific blood tests such as:
#1: A complete thyroid panel
#2: A complete metabolic panel (CMP)
#3: A lipid panel
#4: A CBC (complete blood chemistry with auto differential)
We can assess your thyroid, adrenal glands, liver and gall bladder, and gut function. All can be affected by and/or cause chronic health conditions. By addressing any problems with your thyroid gland, adrenal glands, liver and gall bladder, or gut function, we can help you to heal faster. This thorough blood panel allows us to check all these organs, as well as your iron levels, other important mineral balances and your blood glucose levels, too.
Inflammation: Part of the blood work analyzes your homocysteine levels and C-Reactive Protein (C-RP). Many patients suffering from chronic health conditions suffer from inflammatory processes. Just about every fibromyalgia patient that I have treated suffers from some form of chronic inflammatory process.
Adrenal Stress Index (ASI): You may think your pancreas controls your blood sugar balance…well, you’re not quite completely right. The adrenal glands have more say in the matter. We may assess your adrenal glands with a specialized salivary test called the Adrenal Stress Index. Your adrenal glands are your “stress” organs that react to stress.
This test will measure your cortisol levels as it cycles throughout a normal day. When your body’s cortisol levels are abnormal, you might suffer from insomnia. Cortisol levels can be corrected via specific nutritional protocols thereby curing your insomnia.
**Autoimmune Disorders: If you have a chronic health issue we will test to see if you have an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease is where your immune system attacks a particular area of the body (nervous system, joints, connective tissue, thyroid, etc.), so we test for specific antibodies to determine if you suffer from an autoimmune condition. Your blood panel will include a test of a couple of the primary thyroid antibodies. If these are positive it is an indicator that you DO have an autoimmune problem. However, if these blood tests are negative, it is not conclusive that you do NOT have an autoimmune problem. So, the most important test we can run on a patient with chronic illness is…
Sensitivity Testing: Stool and cheek swab samples are used to determine if you have sensitivity to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, and barley), milk, eggs, yeast, and/or soy. If you are sensitive to ANY of these food groups, that food is most likely making your condition worse as it will increase inflammation in your brain and throughout your body, causing actual destruction of your own tissues!
Here are some of the symptoms of these sensitivities:
- Chronic pain or fatigue
- Digestive problems
- Neurological issues
- Thyroid disorders
If you have these sensitivities your immune system could be attacking your own organs or tissues. Typically, the thyroid is the first notable organ to be attacked; then the parenchymal cells of the stomach, which leads to pernicious anemia (Vitamin B12 deficiency), which is often followed by an attack on the nervous system (the brain!) – NOT GOOD! People who have thyroid issues often have corresponding problems in the brain and/or the bowel, too. Articular joints, cartilage and muscle tissues are also attacked!
That’s how some people who have been mis-diagnosed might actually have an autoimmune disease that is attacking their muscles, joints and brain! No wonder they have all those horrible symptoms. The ONLY way to know is to run the tests.
