PROLOTHERAPY

Weak ligaments and tendons are often the cause of pain and joint damage. Traditional approaches, such as surgery, physical therapy or anti-inflammatory drugs, often fail to stabilize the joint or provide lasting relief from pain. Prolotherapy directly addresses the cause of the instability by strengthening and healing stretched or torn ligaments and tendons. Improved function means less pain.Click here to go to this page

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

It is irresponsible to burden a weight patient with the line “Eat less and exercise more.” The key to lasting weight management is not simple.

Weight gain is not a character flaw, and certainly not “all in your head.” It is a complex metabolic process. ~ David E. Pawsat, DO Click here to go to this page

Dr. Blakeney’s Birthday “Cake”

We would like to wish Dr. Christine Blakeney a very happy birthday!

We celebrated Dr. Blakeney’s birthday with flowers, balloons, and a very interesting “cake.” The “cake” was a Raw Avocado Cake made by our acupuncturist, Renee Hubbs. It was made with all low inflammatory foods that are approved by our doctors. It was different from any other cake I’ve had, but surprisingly delicious! See below for the recipe from doTERRA Essential Oils.
