“I’d Be In A Box”

Posted by on May 25, 2015 in Aches & Pains, Blog, Challenge & Choice, Complex Chronic Pain, Patient Enrichment, Self Enrichment | 0 comments

When asked “How much worse would your condition have been if you had not received treatment here?” we frequently were told “I’d be in a box”.   Pretty powerful stuff.   Sometimes we forget where we have come from and measure success based upon where we are at, or where we think we should be.   Likely most of us would be more grateful if we would measure it based upon where we have come from or where we might have been if not for the help we have received along the way.  Good and bad always go together and for...

Move Your Square

Posted by on May 17, 2015 in Aches & Pains, Blog, Education, Health, Fitness, and Nutrition, Patient Enrichment, Treatment Options | 0 comments

Move your square.   What square?  Your torso.  The portion of your body between your shoulders and hips.  When moving your square its a good idea   to maintain posture.  Think of stature.   Stand tall and keep your head balanced.  Your ears should be over your shoulders (your head should not be in front or behind the rest of your body), shoulders over hips, hips over knees, and knees over ankles (they all should be in alignment).  By maintaining posture you are in a better position to move out of harms way.   It is everyone’s...

Breathing: Its Personal

Posted by on May 17, 2015 in Aches & Pains, Blog, Health, Fitness, and Nutrition, Patient Enrichment, Self Enrichment | 0 comments

All of us breath, right?  Well not exactly.   Most of us actually don’t breath when we need to the most.   If we get tense, in a pickle, or just move we frequently hold our breath.   Pay attention the next time you sit down or upon standing from sitting.   Did you hold your breath?  When we stop breathing the body automatically shunts blood to the brain.   That means there is less oxygen available to the rest of your body.   Anything oxygen deprived gets tense and does not preform as well as it might have if oxygen was available.  ...

Reverse Signs and Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Posted by on May 10, 2015 in Aches & Pains, Blog, Neuropathy, Treatment Options | 0 comments

Can we really reverse the signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy?   Well it sure looks that way!   While the Realief System of care has been out for several years now our personal experience with it only began in January.  But we have become believers.  Diabetic, vascular, idopathic (unknown), and chemotherapy induced are all examples of peripheral neuropathy cases that we have have seen achieve reversal of signs and symptoms, just like Realief claims.  Right now we are raving fans.  Trials are ongoing and new ones are planned with the...

Stem Cell for Knees

Posted by on May 10, 2015 in Aches & Pains, Blog, Regenerative Medicine, Treatment Options | 0 comments

Both autologus (your own) and placental derived stem cells can produce fantastic results for osteoarthritis of the knee.   Each has its own unique set of advantages.  Nothing is better then self and autologus stem cells are just that.  They have a “eureka” day usually within 21 days of grafting and in our hands seem to have a faster onset of action then placental derived.  That means that relief can come on quicker in the majority of cases when autologus stem cells are used.   There are draws back however: they have to be...

CRPS, RSD and Fibromyalgia Patients Often Have Dysautonomia

Posted by on Apr 24, 2015 in Blog, Complex Chronic Pain, Medical Condition, RSD | 0 comments

CRPS, RSD and Fibromyalgia patients often suffer from the signs and symptoms of Dysautonomia: abnormal function of the autonomic nervous system.  The autonomic nervous system is responsible for things like control of blood pressure, skin sweating and temperature, weather sensitivity, heart rate, bowel and bladder control, and even breathing.  Most of us don’t think about these things.  We just assume the body will take care of them.  But when it does not life can be difficult. Fortunately most people who have one of these problems do...
