Pain without an obvious injury is amongst the biggest obstacles faced by those who want to be active. With a thorough evaluation of our bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments a better return to activity plan can be designed while avoiding further impairment.
As we grow into adulthood our performance inevitably drops. Because of this natural process, we often accept it and reduce our activity. Not only aging, but sometimes chemical imbalances in our body, stress and even our diets can contribute to this decline. Adequate evaluation and supplementation can more often than not lead to an increase in performance or slower decline in the same.
The last decade has seen an advancement in the use of Stem Cells in Medicine. Although research continues, many already experienced the benefit of using their own Stem Cells in regenerative medicine in an attempt to help avoid surgery and/or improve recovery. Stem cells are currently being used to repair and regenerate damaged tissue such as cartilage, bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Because of their vascular properties, they are also being used in cases of Erectile Dysfunction. Many of the conditions that have been traditionally surgical have seen significant improvement. If you suffer from shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, foot, wrist or back problems, or if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, stem cells should be something to consider.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Stimulation of your own body’s healing response has been one of the greatest advancements of medicine. Using each individual’s own plasma and injecting it into damaged tissue, an inflammatory cascade is elicited in an attempt to accelerate healing.
Low THC Evaluations/ Medical Cannabis Evaluations
Low THC and Medical Cannabis have shown to be beneficial in many medical conditions. We seek to lend a hand to those in need by performing evaluations and registrations of those with conditions that warrant the use as per the Law of the State of Florida and the Office of Compassionate Use.
Conditions that qualify for Low THC Cannabis are: cancer, epilepsy, chronic seizures, Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gherig's disease (ALS), glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, and chronic muscle spasms. Those with terminal conditions could qualify for Medical Cannabis.
One of the most common reasons why we stay active is to be able to get and stay in the best shape possible. Dietary and exercise recommendations and supplemental HCG for those who need it can be tailored to the individual patient, all while keeping close tabs on our body composition and chemistry. Don't just follow a fad diet from a magazine, have your doctor follow you in your venture!
The practice of Sports Medicine involves the evaluation and management of common injuries that occur in an active patient population. Ninety percent of sports injuries are non-surgical, and prompt recognition and adequate management of these will lead to a faster return to activity.
Ultrasound evaluation of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints has been one of the biggest advancements in contemporary medicine. Tears of these tissues can lead to impairment if left untreated. The evaluation of these, in office, can produce a live image of what would be less affordable using an MRI. In addition to this, ultrasound technology allows injections to be guided into the spots where they are most needed, minimizing side effects and maximizing the benefit obtained with the least amount of medication possible.
Botulinum toxin (BOTOX), Dermal fillers and platelet rich plasma (PRP) are used in our clinic to enhance a person’s natural beauty. Additionally, we offer in office treatment of spider veins to allow our patients to feel better about the bodies they have been building up and working on. Everyone should have a healthy mind, in a healthy body.
