Improving overall health with Functional Medicine

Glen Rock Spine & Rehab believes in a big picture approach to healthcare and chronic diseases. Instead of simply masking the pain with opioids and drugs, we identify and address the root cause of your chronic pain to provide lasting relief. And instead of jumping right into surgeries, we focus on non-invasive and non-surgical solutions to chronic pain. Our solutions focus on improving your overall health and wellness while arming you with the tools to prevent future incidents using functional medicine at Glen Rock Spine & Rehab.

Functional Medicine Includes:

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment that encourages your body to naturally heal the injured and damaged tissues. It involves targeting the inflamed, damaged, or injured areas with a deep tissue laser and delivering beams of laser energy. The laser energy activates certain biochemical responses that encourage cellular regeneration and healing. As the light energy passes through your skin, it activates certain reactions that reduce pain and inflammation while allowing your body to heal completely.

Drug-Free Pain Management

The US is currently in the grips of an opioid crisis because of the overprescription of drugs to alleviate chronic pain. However, drugs can only mask the pain without addressing its root cause, making most people depend on drugs to simply get through life. We use non-narcotic and drug-free pain management solutions that address the root cause of your chronic pain, providing long-lasting relief. Our drug-free pain management solutions include physical therapy, corticosteroids, acupuncture, nerve blocks, and regenerative treatments that encourage natural healing.

Health & Nutrition

An improper diet can lead to various problems, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, digestive problems, kidney disease, autoimmune conditions, and more. Functional medicine at Glen Rock involves nutrition and lifestyle counseling to help you achieve and maintain optimal health, preventing diseases from occurring. We gain a comprehensive understanding of your lifestyle and dietary habits, following which we provide essential information and tools to improve your nutrition according to your specific goals and preferences.

Vibration Therapy

We recommend vibration therapy for patients with lower bone density and insufficient muscle strength. We use PowerPlate to deliver consistent and controlled vibrations to your musculoskeletal system, triggering the production of osteoblasts and bone remodeling tissues. This encourages your body to produce new bone tissues and cells, reversing the effects of osteoporosis. We use the PowerPlate to provide optimal vibration therapy and help you improve overall strength. It can also be combined with other therapies to reduce the likelihood of recurring chronic pain.
