Computerized Spinal Ligament Assessment

The #1 cause of chronic pain and disability in the world is spinal ligament injuries. Ligaments attach bones to each other. We have 220 spinal ligaments of which 23 are discs.

The prevailing thought for spinal injuries seems to be centered only on discs. An MRI is a disc study. It is taken in a neutral position in which no one ever maintains unless we are in a coma. We of course are dynamic creatures that move.

The gold standard for accessing spinal ligament injuries is functional radiographs, ie flexion/extension x-rays. The American Medical Association’s Guide to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment gives the exact parameters for measuring these instabilities.

This is a measurable phenomenon that can not be “eyeballed”. Most radiologists will not take the time or put in the effort to measure for ligament instability. We have a special computer program that enables us to do this but it takes about 20 minutes. Radiologists are paid by the imaging read. The more they complete the more money they make.

These dynamic measurements allow us to identify the weak link in the spine that more often than not corresponds with the patients symptoms and exam. When we can match x-rays, exam, and symptoms we know we have diagnosed the cause of the problem.

A ratable injury is called AOMSI-Alteration Of Motion Segment Integrity. If this is found in the cervical spine it can be worth as much as 24% whole person impairment. This is equal to or greater than the 2 other injuries to the spine, fractures and disc herniations.

Most patients are amazed with the computerized spinal ligament analysis. They have never had someone explain the cause of their symptoms so precisely. I was also amazed about 10 years ago when I first discovered this analysis.

I have been in lecture halls full of chiropractors, that also had this epiphany. After 10 years in practice I learned the cause of most patients' pain, and it is a gift from the AMA. This was transformational for my patient care.

Impulse IQ

At the Wellness Center we use leading edge technology to treat our patients. The computerized adjuster allows no twisting and popping, thus ensuring safety to the patient and the best adjustment possible.


When applied to the dysfunctional area the instrument thrusts at the ideal frequency to maximize motion while changing frequencies in real-time congruently as motion improves. The Impulse iQ® has patented Auto-Sense® technology that senses when mobility is maximized, ceasing the adjustment, and provides feedback of the patient’s response to the adjustment. There is nothing else like it in the marketplace.


The instrument not only adjusts the spine but relieves tight and tender muscles and allows for adjusting through range of motion. This enables ideal motion of the joint for maximum benefit.


How does it affect the patient?

Computerized Adjustment, no twisting or popping. Anxiety free, pain free. We can adjust acute patients immediately after an accident like a serious fall or a motor vehicle collision. Traditional chiropractic would be difficult and painful since the body will splint or tighten to protect itself.


How do you treat patients for that?

We are able to treat headaches, neck pain, upper back pain, shoulder pain, rib pain, mid back, low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, knee pain, ankle/foot pain.


How do patients feel after this treatment?

Patients feel relieved. They experience better range of motion and decrease or elimination in pain immediately.


RED LIGHT THERAPY

The bane of man's existence is inflammation. If it is in the bone it is called osteoarthritis; if it is in the muscle it is called myositis, or in the muscle and fascia it is called fibromyalgia; if it occurs in the cardiovascular system it is atherosclerosis; and finally if it is in the intestine it is irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease.


We buy pills and lotions to tamper the inflammation down. If we can find this “fountain of youth”, we can live pain free and end the chronicity of faster aging and degeneration that inflammation brings.


The technology incorporates 1000’s of mid 600nm and 880nm LED diodes. All living things need to make ATP cellular energy to function and survive, and nearly all living things rely on natural light to power this process in our cells every day. Red and near infrared wavelengths of natural light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells, the powerhouses responsible for taking light, oxygen, and the food we eat—and turning it into usable energy for our bodies through the process of cellular respiration.


RLT has been studied and tested across hundreds of peer-reviewed clinical trials, with overwhelmingly positive results for skin health, collagen production, physical performance & muscle recovery, sleep, joint pain, inflammation, and a lot more. More importantly, that’s without drugs, chemicals, UV rays, invasive procedures, or other common side effects.

NEUROPATHY

Step 1


To accurately diagnose your specific neuropathy, we begin with a physical examination that focuses on the health of your peripheral nerves. This physical examination may include orthopedic tests, reflex tests, range of motion and strength tests. We also seek to discover possible causes of your neuropathy, and identify previous treatments that haven’t been effective. Based on your diagnosis, we will create a specific treatment program that is tailored to your needs.


Step 2


Many healthcare professionals believe that there is no treatment for neuropathy, and simply offer prescription drugs such as gabapentin, hydrocodone, norco, neurontin, cymbalta, lyrica, flexeril and soma to manage neuropathic symptoms. Treating neuropathy through prescription drugs alone simply masks one’s symptoms, and is not a viable long-term solution.


At Hometown Chiropractic & Rehab, we offer our patients a unique treatment depending on your specific neuropathy. Treatments may include:


Infrared laser treatments

Peripheral nerve blocks

Supplements

Chiropractic adjustments

Physical therapy

KNEE JOINT THERAPY

If your knee pain is keeping you from activities you love or even interfering with everyday life, our doctors have a solution for you. Hometown Physical Medicine has the world's most prescribed treatment that is proven to relieve knee pain non-surgically. Our knee specialists use hyaluronic acid injections that naturally replenish the joint fluid, eliminating the pain caused by the lack of joint cartilage.


We use diagnostic ultrasound that allows us to find precisely where the injection is needed. Unlike knee surgery, there is little, if any pain from the injection and absolutely no recovery time. Many of our patients feel results in a matter of weeks and start enjoying life pain-free again. This non-surgical knee treatment is covered by insurance companies, including Medicare.


The main symptom of osteoarthritis is PAIN which can interfere with activities such as walking, sitting, standing, and sleeping. You may feel pain during movement and even at rest. Your joints may also be stiff and swollen, and you may experience a loss of range of movement in the joint.


Besides pain in the knee joint, you may feel:


Tenderness and stiffness in the knee area during movement of the knee.

A grinding/grating, or catching sensation in the knee joint during movement. Let us help you overcome this pain by booking a consult or contacting us.



SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

Most of the patients we meet in Ennis don’t understand the basics of spinal decompression. With back pain tormenting humans for thousands of years, health care providers have searched high and low for a solution. The one place they hadn’t looked until recently is outer space. In a report, it was found that researchers at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration may have found a non-invasive way to treat back pain caused by intervertebral disc problems. Our doctors at Hometown Chiropractic & Rehab will explain this new treatment method to you and how it could lead to faster healing and pain relief for you.

THERAPEUTIC EXERCISES

One thing that sets chiropractors apart from other health care professionals is their holistic view of the body. Instead of dividing the body into its various systems and functions, the chiropractic profession views the body as a whole with each system being mutually dependent on the other. To accomplish this, our doctors at Hometown Chiropractic & Rehab not only address bony misalignments to ensure proper nervous system function, but also provide information on diet, exercise, and healthy living in general. Hometown Chiropractic will help you concentrate on various therapeutic exercises that you can incorporate into your care.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Trigger Points are tight bands of muscles that affect patients everyday. Trigger points can restrict movement, cause muscle weakness, and can cause radiating pain. Depending on your condition, we will use a natural anti-inflammatory agent like Sarapin, or a synthetic anti-inflammatory agent like Ketorolac. These anti-inflammatory options are an alternative to corticosteroids and cortisone injections. This therapy will not damage or weaken any part of your body. Trigger point therapy promotes healing within the soft tissue. Studies have shown this to be an effective therapy in relieving acute and chronic pain by providing instant and long-lasting results! If you need this care please feel free to book a consultation or contact us.

VERTIGO

Vertigo can literally turn your life upside down in Ennis. It is a condition marked by dizziness and living with it makes even the simplest functions of day to day living a struggle. Many people find it difficult to get information about what exactly is causing their vertigo, and therefore what the best available treatments are. We will help you to understand the common causes of Vertigo as well as explain how chiropractic treatment can help you to find relief. please feel free to book a consult with us or contact us through phone or email directly.




REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

Let Us Help You Achieve A Better Quality Of Life


Chronic pain robs suffers of their quality of life and often leads to unnecessary pain medications and even depression. It is possible to turn the clock of time backwards and get your life back. Regenerative medicine is a rapidly advancing area of health care that works to repair the injury, not just mask the pain. Until recently, treatment options for people with chronic pain were limited to steroid injections and surgery that offer only short term or often-harmful outcomes.

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

Effective Alternative to Surgery & Drugs


Spinal decompression treatment is fairly straightforward. This treatment technique decompresses the nerves, the spine, and the spinal discs that are currently causing you pain. Through the process, our Jackson spinal decompression professionals apply distraction force to restore the discs’ function— all without surgery or drugs!

PERIPHERAL NEUROLOGY & DIABETES

Don’t Let Pain Control Your Life!


Peripheral neuropathy, a condition caused by damage to your peripheral nerves, can produce debilitating pain in numerous areas of the body. Our Jackson integrated wellness clinic employs professionals who are trained to provide various types of therapeutic treatments that target the source of the pain. As a result, our team can provide you with the relief you need to function in your daily life! Avoid the hassle of complicated surgeries and potentially dangerous medication by receiving customized treatment from Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC!

HORMONE IMBALANCE

When you suffer from a hormone imbalance, your life can be negatively impacted in numerous ways. Your emotional well-being and your physical health are dependent upon your hormones regulating your body to behave properly.


A person produces many different hormones, including thyroxine, insulin, estrogen, and testosterone. The latter two are generally associated with women and men, respectively, but both genders produce each of the hormones. As you age, the production of these hormones can lessen, bringing on diseases, behavioral changes, and mental health issues. Bioidentical hormone pellet therapy can help rebalance the body’s hormones in as natural a way as possible. If you recognize any of the following signs and symptoms in yourself, we can help improve your life.

BHRT

BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. What this does is ensure that the hormones you take to supplement your reduced estrogen or testosterone production exactly match the molecular structure of your body’s own hormones.


If you have begun noticing changes in your behavior, your physical well-being, or both, such as an increase in anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, hot flashes, weight gain, or fatigue, you might have a hormone issue. These are just some of the symptoms of low testosterone and low estrogen. You should contact a doctor to confirm that these signs are the result of a hormone imbalance and not a disease.


A comprehensive blood test will determine if you need hormone therapy and, if you do, what amount of replacement hormones your body requires to regulate your system. From there, your doctor can prescribe a plan of action specific to you.

HORMONAL OPTIMIZATION

Hormone optimization can help you feel better as you age. When we get older, our bodies slow the production of testosterone and estrogen. For women, especially as they go through perimenopause and menopause, estrogen levels decrease dramatically. If these hormones, either estrogen or testosterone, are not present at their full strength, they can cause mental, emotional, and physical problems.


You may start to have trouble sleeping, gain weight easier than before, feel depressed, or become fatigued. Symptoms that aren’t as readily noticeable, but are more serious, can include loss of bone strength and the onset of cardiovascular disease.


The good news is that these issues can be lessened or eliminated through the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

WEIGHT LOSS

Helping You Meet Your Goals


Are you feeling overweight, fatigued, or just all-around unhealthy as you go about your everyday life? If you have tried other methods to lose weight in the past and have failed, we understand the frustration that you are experiencing. At Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC, we offer natural weight loss programs that are actually effective. Our Jackson integrated wellness clinic offers programs and products that can help you quickly achieve your goals so you can become healthier and happier!

CARPAL TUNNEL

Carpal Tunnel – Without Surgery


Have you ever stopped to think how many daily activities rely on your wrists? If you are one of the many people who have experienced carpal tunnel then you might have an answer. Advanced Rehab & Medical can offer natural, non-surgical pain relief.


From manufacturing and office jobs, to the frequent use of cell phones, these days our wrists work overtime. Early signs of the development of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) can start with tingling or numbness in the hands or fingers. If it continues, it can weaken grip strength and ultimately cause intense pain.


Carpal tunnel is brought on by increased pressure on the median nerve of the wrist. This is the nerve that supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. When symptoms like extremity numbness and tingling begin, muscle damage may not be far behind.


FIBROMYALGIA

Treatment Customized to Your Needs & Lifestyle


Are you experiencing tenderness, fatigue, trouble sleeping, or chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, back, or hips due to complications associated with fibromyalgia? Good news—our Jackson integrated wellness clinic can help! Fibromyalgia is the second most common musculoskeletal disorder (following osteoarthritis), and it affects millions of Americans.


At Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC, we base our fibromyalgia treatment approach on this reasoning: If the pain from this disorder doesn’t originate in simply one way, why should it be treated in only one way? The answer is simple—it shouldn’t! Because of our different way of thinking, we provide individual treatment plans that are created to fit in with your unique symptoms, pain levels, lifestyle, and goals for pain management.

PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Let Us Help You Walk Comfortably


Most commonly it is described as a sharp stabbing, burning, or aching pain in your foot or heel upon standing. The fascia is a fibrous band of tissue that runs between the heel bone and your toes and stretches with every step. Inflammation can occur anywhere along the inner, outer, or transverse areas of your foot. This means that you can feel pain from the base of your heel, inside of your foot, or worse, along the entire bottom of your foot.

TMJD PAIN

Maybe It’s Time To Try Something New…


Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction or most commonly referred to as TMJD or TMJ, is a set of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw joint and surrounding tissues and limitation in jaw movements.In a normal temporomandibular joint there is a small disc located at the top of the mandible that cushions the joint and prevents the mandible and temporal joints from rubbing together when the jaw is closed. When it opens the disc slides forward and continues to protect the jaw.

HEADACHES & MIGRAINES

Integrated, Natural Treatment for Your Pain


A whopping 9 out of 10 Americans experience headaches, and a large percentage suffer from them constantly. At Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC, our Jackson integrated wellness clinic believes that you don’t have to simply get used to the pain. Whether you have dull headaches or debilitating migraines, we can offer you an integrated treatment plan that is customized to your individual needs. With treatment, you may be able to finally find relief from your pain!

CHIROPRACTIC CARE

What Is Chiropractic Treatment?


Simply put, chiropractic care is a truly “hands-on” approach to healthcare. This form of treatment uses spinal adjustments and rehabilitation in order to realign the vertebrae, alleviate pain, and restore the spine and nervous system back to optimal functionality. Through chiropractic care, you can achieve pain relief and physical recovery without having to undergo surgery or load your body with medication!


At Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC, we use the Pettibon method of chiropractic care, which requires additional training. Only about 250 other chiropractors in the U.S. are qualified to practice this method. At our Jackson integrated wellness clinic, we provide chiropractic care hand-in-hand with other beneficial treatment techniques, such as physical therapeutics, rehabilitative exercises, and counseling for how to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.

KNEE PAIN

Providing Natural Relief through Viscosupplementation


Dealing with chronic pain in your knees can be difficult, especially when your pain interrupts many aspects of your daily routine. While surgery may be the correct route for some, others may be searching for a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option. At Advanced Rehab and Medical, PC, our team provides an effective and natural form of treatment known as “viscosupplementation.” This method works by utilizing a substance found naturally in the human body to replace joint fluid, re-pad the knee, and provide relief for pain. Viscosupplementation is a great treatment option for patients who suffer from osteoarthritis in their joints.
