The treatment process includes specially designed exercises that each patient must perform prior to treatment. In fact, the exercises will improve your posture, your flexibility, your balance and coordination as well as prepare your spine and joints for a more optimal treatment. As your health improves, the exercises become easier to perform and is a great indicator of your progress. You will be guided on how to correctly perform each exercise, watch the video, and soon you will be an expert. You will also receive a copy of these exercises to perform at home and speed up your recovery process. Most patients share these exercise videos with their families and the kids love to join in with mom and dad.
It is very likely that you have never seen a clinical treatment space like Global Wellness. Modern, high tech, efficient and everyone appears to be having a good time in spite of their pain...of they have pain. The specialists are here to listen to your challenges and also your victories as you improve. It is our job to educate you through the process and we encourage every patient to ask questions and to actively participate in their own healing process. We use advanced, computer assisted technology to evaluate and to treat each and every patient safely, effectively and comfortably. The treatment itself is painless and in fact, some patients nearly fall asleep during the treatment process. We combine the technology with a fully hands on approach so you will know for certain that we know exactly where you need attention and treatment.
There will be situations that require a bit more attention from our specialists. Be certain that we will provide you with the most appropriate treatment that is required for that day. Each specialist brings something different, from expert Chiropractic adjusting, Osteopathic approaches to specific Physical Therapy treatments. We focus primarily on the spine because it contains the spinal cord and nerves that control every part of the body. When necessary, we perform functional correction treatments to the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles. We believe in a global approach to functional correction. When joints function better, your nervous system functions better and that equates to a pain free and much higher quality of life. We do our best to provide the specific treatment you require for your specific problem. There is greater strength in an integrated approach to your health, and we only seek to provide the best care possible for each and every patient.
We have a specialized and comfortable method of disc and spinal decompression. The patient lies on padded table and secured using special belts which are connected to a pully that is specifically calibrated by the doctor to their body weight. The machine gently and slowly tractions the spine (neck or low back) depending on the area that needs treatment. The patient only feels a very slight tractioning force that lasts for about 5-10 seconds and relaxes. The sessions last between 15-20 minutes depending on the severity of the herniated or injured disc. Typically, a patient will require between 10 and 20 sessions spread out over a six to eight week period , again, depending on severity.
Research and scientific studies have demonstrated an 85% success rate at avoiding surgery using this method. Unfortunately, some cases will indeed need surgical intervention if there is too much damage.
We have created this space in the clinic specifically to help patients learn how to perform exercises correctly and safely so that they can perform them at home or in the gym without injury. The focus is to rehabilitate areas of the body that require strengthening, flexibility, posture correction, balance training and coordination training. You will be guided through each specific rehabilitation exercise that is prescribed for your specific needs. This is typically the final stage in your treatment session. You will feel stronger and stand taller. Many patients report feeling much younger as their strength and flexibility improve. The harder you work, the faster you recover and the better your results will be.
