Integrative medicine specialists focus on helping you achieve ongoing relief from arthritis pain through lifestyle changes, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and other forms of treatment.
The integrative medicine specialists at Enhanced Medical Centers create a treatment plan for you based on the results of your evaluation.
If you continue to have arthritis pain, the integrative medical specialists at Enhanced Medical Centers might recommend an amniotic allography.
This type of treatment involves the use of healthy tissue and amniotic fluid to ease pain and slow the progression of wear and tear on your joints. It's the newest form of treatment that uses amniotic fluid from ethical sources that are considered safe.
Noninvasive treatments have fewer risks than surgical procedures. There’s no downtime involved afterward, and you don’t have to worry about tissue damage, excess bleeding, infections, and other complications.
The integrative medical specialists at Enhanced Medical Centers will determine if these treatments are right for your condition. If you need treatment for arthritis, please contact Enhanced Medical Centers to schedule an appointment.
