CHRONIC BACK  NECK PAIN

Chronic back and neck pain, which can extend to chronic leg and arm pain, can have many different causes. The pain can be generated from an annular disc tear, a disc herniation, a disc bulge, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, disc osteophyte complex, spondylolisthesis, a synovial cyst, degenerative disc disease, atrophy of the spinal muscles, muscle spasm, a pinched nerve, musculoskeletal imbalances, neurological imbalances, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis to name a few! We utilize the principles of functional rehabilitation and conduct a thorough evaluation resulting in an accurate diagnosis to determine the root cause of the pain. This will lead us to the options available for your treatment, from completely non-invasive to very minimally invasive

 

JOINT & KNEE PAIN

As with all other pain, joint and knee pain can generate from several causes including autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or gout, trauma or injury to the area, and abnormal biomechanics causing accelerated degeneration of the knee or joint. Treatment for will be provided depending on the underlying cause. Knee and joint pain caused by trauma or injury is treated with Class IV Laser therapy, several types of injections which will relieve pain to facilitate healing, soft tissue work, and exercises. Joint pain caused by auto immune disorders is treated by dampening the response through functional medical testing and treatment. And joint pain due to abnormal biomechanics can be treated by remedying the abnormality with tools such orthotics and laser VibraCussor.

NEUROPATHY

Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nerves of your extremities and is felt as a tingling, painful, and numbing feeling in your hands, feet, arms, and/or legs. Damage to the nerves can be caused by metabolic diseases such as diabetes and shingles, treatments for diseases such as chemotherapy and statin drugs, or damage to the spinal discs such as disc herniations or stenosis. We apply the principles of functional medicine to focus first on understanding the root cause of your neuropathy and then applying a variety of effective treatments, including enlightened health and lifestyle changes, Class IV Laser treatments, in-depth metabolic therapies, non-surgical spinal decompression, and more. These treatment methods not only alleviate the discomfort associated with neuropathy, but also support the healing of other systems of the body.

HEADACHES

Headaches are classified as tension headaches, migraine headaches, and cluster headaches. While pain medication may be necessary to get through a particularly bad headache, it’s important to classify and treat the underlying cause of your headache. Causes can include changes in blood vessel diameter, anything that puts pressure on the meninges, a skull fracture, a strained muscle in the back of your neck, vertebral and disc dysfunction, vision problems, TMJ dysfunction, and more. We aim to provide you with a full evaluation and health history to get to the root cause of the pain, resolve the issue at the source, and ensure that you are pain free without the use of medication.

FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. The diagnosis is typically one of exclusion, meaning no other cause can be found. It will typically present itself as brain fog, aches and pains, malaise, fatigue, and depression. In general, you can think of your symptoms as a constellation of problems that feed on one another. Most fibromyalgia patients have an early stage metabolic condition as well as a poorly functioning brain and brain stem. These conditions are functional issues, and an MRI and conventional lab work will rarely lead to a definitive conclusion for most doctors. At IPMG we are experienced in putting the myriad of fibromyalgia puzzle pieces together and understanding the interrelatedness of all the systems of your body.

SPINAL STENOSIS

Spinal stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal where the nerves run from the brain down the back or an abnormal narrowing of the passage between the discs of the spine where nerves typically exit or enter the spine. Spinal stenosis can be inherited or acquired. Acquired causes include wear and tear in the discs, arthritis, inflammation, degenerated facet joints, herniated discs, or previous trauma or injury to the spine. Treatment for spinal stenosis will depend on the cause but for most cases a combination of non-surgical spinal decompression, class IV laser therapy, Active Therapeutic Movement®, in-depth metabolic therapies, and more are used.
