Smoking Cessation

If you have decided to quit smoking, Auriculotherapy is a safe and effective treatment with a success rate of 75-80%. Treatment consists of electro stimulation of specific points in the ears which "turns off" the nicotine addiction.

Nutritional Counseling

Patients with specific health concerns are evaluated based on their health history and symptoms. A customized program of supplementation may be prescribed utilizing natural, food-based products to help the body regain balance.

Hormone Testing

For those suffering with fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, memory loss, and hot flashes, salivary hormone testing is appropriate. Our lab can accurately measure estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol levels and will interpret the results.

Whole Body Vibration

Whole body vibration speeds up healing and builds strength and flexibility without straining injured tissues. Exercises are performed on a vibration platform enhancing recuperation.

 

X-Ray / MRI / CAT Scan

chiropractic-x-rayX-rays of the back or neck may be taken in-office, or Dr. Bravo may send patients to an x-ray facility for these films. Depending on the findings, he may call for an MRI or other diagnostic imaging study of the back or problem area.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

electrical-stimulationOften referred to as "muscle stim," the therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and speed healing. Often described by patients as a pleasant, "tingling" sensation, or "electrical massage," these impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins. These endorphins reduce pain and inflammation, thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues. This therapy is often used to treat acute or chronic pain, as well as strains or sprains of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the spine and extremities.

Ultrasound

ultrasoundThis treatment should not be confused with diagnostic ultrasound, often used in prenatal screening, but is instead a therapeutic procedure that utilizes sound waves to treat injured muscles, joints, and soft tissues. The sound waves vibrate the tissues back and forth, creating a deep, micro-massage effect. In the case of a recent injury, this helps to decrease scar tissue and adhesion formation, which would otherwise interfere with the body's healing process. The sound waves also decrease inflammation by destroying unwanted inflammatory cells and also accelerate healing by stimulating the activity of the cells responsible for cellular and tissue repair. The vibrations that are caused by the ultrasound, help to "melt away" the muscle spasms and "knots" felt in our muscles.

Cryotherapy

cryotherapyCryotherapy is a term that describes the application of ice compresses to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the skin surface. Cryotherapy works on the surface cooling constricts blood vessels, numbs painful areas, and helps relax muscle spasms. Cold temperatures reduce nerve transmission of painful symptoms and provide temporary relief. Cooling affected tissues is effective in reducing and preventing post-traumatic swelling. Local cooling should be applied several times a day during the initial stages of an injury.

Patients Benefits: Helps reduce swelling and inflammation, Numbs affected area to reduce pain, Reduces muscle spasms and is inexpensive and can be self-applied.
