Welcome… now you can relax in knowing that you will be under the care of some of the most talented physicians in medicine today. Their combined scope of practice is unique to the Bay Area as it includes Family Medicine, Functional Medicine, Sports Medicine and Regenerative Medicine.
If you have a common cold, infection, bronchitis, a woman’s health issue, digestive disorder or just need a general physical exam we are here to help you. A yearly physical is an important way to stay on top of your health and to keep on target for a healthier lifestyle. Teaming up with your doctor to strategize on ways to treat issues that brought you here can give you the power of choice. Discussing and empowering people on how to manage and mitigate the early signs of a potential health challenge is something our patients really appreciate.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what are sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
Our doctors have treated some of the best athletes in the world and we use that experience and skill in helping our patients from all you weekend warriors to professional athletes and everything in-between.
Using some of the best combinations of traditional, integrated and regenerative medicine we can help diagnose, treat and get you back in action as quickly as possible. We take it a step further by looking at the athlete as a whole, assessing why the injury may have happened in the first place (muscular imbalances, poor biomechanics, lack of stability or mobility during movements) and assist the patient in improving and correcting these findings. This can result in a quick recovery, improved function/performance and reduce the risks of a subsequent injury. Our unique experience of having world class Doctors of Chiropractic as well as Doctors of Physical Therapy working in the same facility help us to communicate the unique needs of each patient, when a team approach is needed.
This is a new and exciting area in the field of medicine. Did you know it is now possible to restore and repair damaged or aging cells using regenerative cells (either your own cells or donor cells), and effectively regenerate tissues in the body. Prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma and stem cell therapy are some of the best medicine has to offer in the field of regenerative medicine, and we do it here at Chiro-Medical Group.
Our medical department is on the cutting edge of this incredible technology to treat sprains, strains, and damaged ligaments and shock absorbers of the body which include the shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees, feet and spine. Injuries that lingered or just never quite healed correctly now have the potential for recovery with this incredible technology. Ruptured ligaments or torn knee meniscus that previously required surgery now may be candidates for a non-surgical correction. We have seen, and research has shown that this may be an option for many injuries that are now treated with more invasive procedures. An ACL is a good example where following surgery, there is a long road to recovery (surgery and intensive rehab) where Stem cell therapy may have a much easier healing process.
So now you may have options, and we would like to help you to make an informed decision when it comes to treating your musculoskeletal injuries with regenerative tissue therapy.
