Unique Diagnostic Process 

Innovative Therapy Lower Back Pain  “I can’t believe the number of people who appear to suffer from chronic pain based upon the outrageously high demand now for marijuana in Canada. Additionally, consider the endless TV and newspaper commercials for a spectrum of gimmicks, devices, lotions, pills, and now stem cell treatments claiming to help relieve pain. Yet none claim to resolve your pain”.   ...Glenn


Clients tell me of the array of treatments they have consented to receive, the lost time going to countless appointments and the high cost from all aspects of therapy that did not work for them. When I ask them what condition was identified as the cause for their pain, they all tell me they do not know. They were never told exactly what was wrong, and wonder if the multiple health care practitioners they saw ever really knew. After months or even years in some cases of having every type of therapy administered to them with no favorable results, they did not know what to do next.”

No health care professional in the world no matter how skilled or knowledgeable they are can cure pain, if the cause is not accurately identified, thus our Unique Diagnostic Process!

The diagnostic process plays an important role in solving any condition we treat, as it dictates all aspects of a treatment plan. We have many therapeutic tools to choose from in order to treat pain and immobility, but we must know what is wrong so the correct tool is chosen for the correct application it is intended to solve.

This information can then be used to establish a customized treatment plan, specific to your conditions.

Our assessment and diagnostic findings are discussed with you, using our resident skeleton. We find this an excellent way to explain the proposed treatment plan with an actual anatomical model rather than by words or pictures. Everyone understands perfectly whenever we use our skeleton to show cause and effect.

Stages of Our Unique Diagnostic Process

Stage 1: Biomechanical and Biostructural Evaluation

This first stage involves a hands-on scan of the body while standing (load bearing), then lying on both back and stomach. We feel abnormal presentations in skin, muscle, and joints that the body develops whenever regional problems exist. Biomechanical alignment and biostructural deviations yield important clues to the causes of conditions that are essential in this first investigative phase.

Chronic back and neck pain, frozen shoulder, and restless legs are just a few examples of what you may consider a condition to be treated directly, when in fact they are reactions to some larger fault in the body. If this larger fault is not identified, treating the back, head/neck, or shoulder will only lead to failure.

Stage 2: Neurological and neuromuscular Evaluation

The investigative process continues with a full peripheral neurological examination.

The nervous system is always involved in chronic muscle and joint pain, so must be fully examined to determine whether the system is the primary or secondary cause for the conditions.

The peripheral nervous system sets the tone of all muscles in the body through an involuntary reflex mechanism. This reflex mechanism can be adversely altered causing either dangerous increased tone, or lack of tone flaccidity. This results in abnormal strain on the body causing pain.

Perfect examples of this phenomenon are again those of a frozen shoulder, chronic back, neck pain, and fibromyalgia.

Stage 3: Vascular Evaluation

This next investigative phase involves the evaluation of the peripheral circulation of both blood and lymphatic systems. Muscles, joints, and nerves see pain if they do not have an ample supply of oxygenated blood, or a congested lymphatic/ venous return flow out.

A Doppler ultrasound is used to verify systemic circulation, while other medical tests evaluate blood oxygen levels, skin temperature variations in the skin of the face, hands, and feet, skin and nail bed pallor, and extremity blood flow fill rates.

Note!

Problems with the peripheral nervous system can adversely affect the vascular/lymphatic systems, and conversely, problems with the vascular/lymphatic systems can adversely affect the peripheral nervous system.

This is a crucial phase in our investigative process as it helps to identify or rule out causes for pain on a large scale.

Stage 4: The Heavy Hitters of Our World-Class Technologies

If required, this fourth and final stage in the diagnostic process involves us altering the use of the clinic’s world-class treatment technologies to a diagnostic role. Each technology has its own unique capability in treating pain but are invaluable in extreme cases able to confirm deep dysfunctions involving all structures of the body.

For example, the high-energy magnetic impulses from our magnetic therapy easily determine whether the nervous system and/or musculoskeletal systems are involved deep in the body.

This is a mandatory testing process used in all cases of pelvic pain syndrome (pudendal), degenerative disc disease, and neuropathy.

Our powerful EMS shockwave therapy aimed with extreme precision will identify exact locations of nerve compression sites including that of sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and pelvic pain syndrome/pudendal neuralgia. This technology is typically used to break apart-unwanted calcifications and twisted muscles, but like magnetic therapy passes deep into the body.

Professional spinal decompression quickly establishes whether the spine and specifically the spinal discs are involved.

Finally … Answers

Upon completion of these investigative phases, you will know exactly where the cause of your symptoms is, why it developed, and what must be done to resolve it.

You are now in a position to make an informed decision based upon facts from the outcome of all the testing you were a part of.

If we ARE capable of resolving your issue, a treatment plan is created detailing such aspects as technologies used, the number of treatments, what to expect and so on.

If we are NOT capable of resolving your issue, we will inform you accordingly and suggest where to go for further help.

We only agree to treat those whom we know we can help.
