Health and wellness treatments have become a leading approach to healthcare for patients looking for less risk and greater results, involving the mind and body as interconnected factors working to reach optimal healing and pain relief.

The ultimate goal of health and wellness is to allow patients to achieve a high level of results while avoiding the negative side effects that may come with traditional invasive medical treatment.

These negative side effects can include big surgical procedures, an immensely long and painful recovery period, high out-of-pocket expenses, and a lack of long-lasting results.

Four key aspects of health and wellness-focused treatment that can help to eliminate some of these downsides include:

  • Ultra-minimally invasive treatment
  • IV vitamin infusions
  • Massage therapy
  • Personalized weight loss program

Ultra-minimally invasive treatment — Traditional open, invasive surgery is becoming a nearly negated approach to modern-day medicine. Minimally invasive surgery is the more common technique, allowing for physicians to perform procedures with less risk to their patients. In addition to the minimally invasive approach, there is also the groundbreaking ultra-minimally invasive approach. Highly skilled physicians are performing these procedures with exceptional, life-changing results.

Ultra-minimally invasive procedures involve the advanced technique of using microscopic incisions to insert tiny tools and cam-eras into the treatment site to treat injuries. This method allows for a rapid recovery time (about 48 hours); no stitches; eliminated surgical risk; and a more comfortable healing process.

Ultra-minimally invasive treatment can be utilized for various procedures such as ACL, labrum, rotator cuff and meniscus tears; disc bulges and herniation; and much more. It can also be used to treat small aches and pains to prevent them from becoming bigger injuries.

IV vitamin infusions — IV vitamin infusions offer an array of benefits. They bypass the digestive system entirely, allowing for the recipient to directly process key nutrients and vitamins into the bloodstream, making them available for immediate use.

IV vitamin infusions are proven to provide various benefits, including:

  • Heightened athletic performance
  • Boosted immune system
  • Improved energy levels
  • Anti-aging qualities
  • Improved skin health
  • Healthy weight loss
  • Accelerates recovery process after an injury

IV vitamin infusions provide immense benefits to post-surgical patients, mainly due to the presence of amino acids. These amino acids aid the body in the muscle-building process and have an overall positive effect on the body during treatment recovery. IV vitamin infusions also provide the body with heightened hydration, an important factor in recovery.

Massage therapy — Massage therapy is a technique that is growing significantly in popularity in the healthcare industry. Massage therapy has many beneficial qualities for pain relief, injury prevention, stress reduction and muscle tension. Due to these advantageous properties, massage therapy is more commonly being incorporated in treatment plans for patients.

The benefits of massage therapy include:

  • Decreased body pain
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Decreased stiffness
  • Elimination of body toxins

Healthy weight loss program — Weight loss is a point of interest for many patients seeking a new state of health and wellness. Whether it’s a confidence boost or strictly for medical purposes, weight loss holds a strong presence in the health and wellness objectives.

Excess weight can significantly contribute to joint and muscle pain, as well as exacerbate injuries and other various orthopedics issues. A personalized, healthy weight loss program can positively contribute to your treatment in helping to avoid an injury.

The benefits of healthy weight loss include:

  • Decreased/reduced joint pain
  • Increased flexibility and mobility
  • Improved levels of cholesterol/blood sugar
  • Lowered risk of diabetes
  • Decreased level of back pain
  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced risk of injury

A key factor in understanding weight gain is the proper testing and analysis of bloodwork. Bloodwork results can show imbalances that patients may not otherwise be aware of that are affecting their weight, resulting in the need for a more personalized diet and exercise plan in order to facilitate healthy weight loss.

Boosting your metabolism, in addition to a personalized diet and exercise plan, will help increase the likelihood of healthy weight loss. There are a variety of ways you can boost your metabolism naturally, including specific diets, exercise and natural supplements. Weight loss injections provided by qualified physicians are also contributing to healthy weight loss and increased metabolism in patients, especially natural metabolism boosters that won’t have a negative effect on the cardiovascular system.

Genetic testing can help determine what type of diet your body will respond to best. Prioritizing these elements of health and wellness are necessary for any patient looking to reach optimal health through a personalized diet and fitness program. When combined with this approach, patients seeking care such as ultra-minimal-ly invasive treatment for back, neck, shoulder or knee pain, or any other orthopedic issue, will experience long-lasting results with a minimal recovery period.

The combination of ultra-minimally invasive treatment, IV vitamin infusions, massage therapy and a customized weight loss program leads to a successful treatment plan and patients getting back to the things they love in a timely manner. No patient wants to be out of work for an extended time period or torn from their normal routine due to receiving necessary medical treatment. Therefore, finding the right conservative treatment options for each patient is necessary and will provide a beneficial outcome.
