His approach is safe, effective, thorough and builds the foundation for a pain free life with full mobility and functioning.
Osteopathic Manual Medicine
Osteopathic manual medicine (or Osteopathic Manual Therapy OMT) is a hands-on method of treating injuries and pain of the spine and extremities using manual manipulation. OMT properly applied improves and or restores nomal function and range of motion of the spine and extremities. A range of techniques are employed that are suitable for all age groups and levels of infirmity.
Acupuncture is well known in its ability to stop pain, what is not well known is its utility in reducing inflammation and speeding recovery. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have minimal risks or side effect and are thus safer and should therefore be used first before resorting to chemical medicine or surgery.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbs work alone or in collaboration with acupuncture to support the rebalancing of the Qi energy in the body. Chinese herbal medicine is also highly effective in reducing swelling and bruising without the infamous side effects of prescription or over the counter pharmaceuticals.
