STATE OF THE ART THERAPIES
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger points or “knots” in the muscle can be very painful and impede healing and even create other musculoskeletal issues when gone untreated for too long. At Leading Edge Medical we use a variety of different medications and natural substances to inject into trigger points. The patient is then able to tolerate treatment and therapies better and shortens their treatment time and costing the patient less money in the long run. Our PA performs all our trigger point injections
E-stim sends electrical pulses through the skin to help stimulate injured muscles or manipulate nerves to reduce pain. The machine is always adjusted to the patient’s comfort level. You may have heard of a tens unit, the E-Stim is similar to that but penetrates much deeper and can be more powerful. E-stim may not be appropriate for those with heart conditions or pace makers, but for many people this painless procedure is key for accelerating recovery and providing relief from painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
invisa-RED™ is the only FDA approved and clinically proven device to provide weight reduction, fat reduction and inch loss. invisa-RED™ stimulates cellular respiration, lymphatic function and increases the metabolism through the synthesis of ATP (cell’s energy storehouse). It uses dual wavelengths (red 680nm & Infrared 980nm) to stimulate cellular metabolism. A pulsing light allows for a higher rate of cell absorption and deeper penetration into fat cells. Fat is then utilized as an energy source and excreted in the body as waste through sweat and urine. Patients can burn up to 1500 calories per treatment. A package of 12 used over a one month period is recommended.
The laser energy heats the subcutaneous tissue and increases localized blood flow to transfer nutrients and oxygen in the cells. The saturation of oxygen triggers cellular respiration and is processed into cellular energy generating ATP, enhancing the body’s natural metabolism for the immediate utilization of stored fat energy. Within two minutes of the treatment; water, glycerol, triglycerides, and toxins are released from the fat cells. Most is then utilized as an energy source. The supercharged metabolism will continue to burn fat for several hours after treatments just like it would from high intensity exercise and strength training. Cells are not harmed during the process unlike invasive procedures.
Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy
Regenerative medicine is the science of your body’s natural ability to heal on its own. Stem cells are very complex cells in their ability to heal inside the entire body. Stem cells can replicate or differentiate, turning into another type of cell. The stem cell can either attach to a diseased cell causing it to turn into a healthier version of its self or a stem cell can travel to a diseased cell and tell it to change its behavior therefore becoming a healthy cell. Stem cells can be injected directly into joints.
Spinal Decompression therapy is a non-surgical motorized traction machine that gently stretches the spine. You do this by laying on a table while the chiropractor places straps to hold you in place. This can relieve pressure off the spinal discs and nerves. This therapy greatly benefits those who suffer from neck pain, lower back pain, auto injury, herniated discs, and disc degeneration. Spinal decompression therapy is a great natural alternative to narcotics and other medications. Many feel relief immediately after treatment but others may need several to feel relief.
Platelet Rich Fibrin, or PRF, is found in your blood. It is created by drawing your own blood and spinning it in a centrifuge resulting in a highly concentrated serum filled with over 64 types of healing growth factors. This can be injected in to joints for joint rejuvenation and the scalp to regrow lost or thinning hair. It can also be injected or micro needled into the face and skin for scarring, wrinkles and skin discoloration. Because PRF also contains fibrin, the growth factors can bind, adding volume to the area where it’s injected and be used as a natural facial filler. This fibrin creates a scaffolding that holds growth factors to recruit more growth factors over a period of 2 weeks. PRF is a very affordable option for those who can afford stem cell injections or want a completely 100% auto logo us option.
