Medical Acupuncture is a contemporary form of acupuncture based on western concepts of anatomy, physiology and biomedicine. It foundation is based on the therapeutic insertion of needles in various combinations and patterns along the body. The choice of needle patterns is based on traditional principles to encourage the flow of qi (energy) through the body, and modern concepts to recruit neuroanatomical activities in segmental distributions, or a combination of these two principles. This therapy is effective for treating chronic and acute pain, menstrual symptoms, menopausal symptoms, inflammatory diseases, respiratory issues, weight loss and smoking cessation among other conditions.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which special cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. One way to think about cupping is that it is the inverse of massage. Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward. Cupping therapy can be used for many purposes, including pain reduction, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s 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? Dr. Angelo Gazze can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Custom foot orthotics are biomechanical medical devices that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom foot orthotics fit into your shoes just like an insoles, but they have been made from precise imprints of your feet. They will reduce the stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
Custom foot orthotics help rebalance your feet, reducing pain and discomfort by enhancing your body's natural movements. They gently reduce problems associated with pressure points, muscle strains and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips, and spine.
Athletic Bracing and Supports
Athletic Bracing and supports are used after an injury to provide stability while the injury is healing. The type of injury sustained determines the type of brace required. There are different braces and supports for all the joints of the body.
Compression stockings are specialized hosiery designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders. Compression stockings are elastic garments worn around the leg, compressing the limb providing a graduated compression that helps blood flow from the lower leg towards the heart. Compression is firmest at the ankle, and gradually reduces as the distance from the ankle increases. This helps reduces the diameter of distended veins, increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression Stockings help decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis and impairments of venous walls allowing them to relieve heaviness and aching legs, prevent the formation of blood clots and aid in the treatment of ulcers.
