Our medical doctors may prescribe X-Rays, MRI’s, NCV (nerve conduction velocity) testing, and/or Vascular Ultrasound testing to diagnose the patient’s condition. Once diagnosed, a patient may receive homeopathic and/or allopathic treatments to alleviate the symptoms associated with disease or disorders and to restore the body to optimal health. Alternatives to invasive surgeries and pharmacological injections are also provided. Those options include natural bio-pharmaceutical injections for pain associated with muscles spasms, inflammation of the joints, and headaches. Conditions such as osteoarthritis of the knee, are also treated more safely and effectively than other conventional methods. The medical doctor may prescribe chiropractic care, physical rehab, and/or massage as part of the patient’s integrated treatment plan.
