Combining Conventional and Complementary Healthcare for Optimal Outcomes

Integrative Therapies offers a variety of services that can be utilized on a singular basis or can be explored in an integrated fashion with the treatment program designed to address your particular needs and interests. Clients often meet with our director, integrative medical doctor or one of our holistic physical therapists on their first visit to help devise a personalized treatment program. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality care and you can be assured of receiving personalized one-on-one care by a skilled professional during each of your treatment visits.

Below is a list of services, some with a brief description. If you would like to learn more, simply click on the links for more detail or feel free to call us at (336) 294-0910 with any questions you may have.

Specialty Programs for Specific Conditions:

Headache Wellness Program

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy

Fibromyalgia Program – A Multidisciplinary Approach

Program for Jaw Pain and TMJ Dysfunction

Treatment for Myofascial Pain and Trigger Points

Women's Health and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Program

The services offered in this program address many health issues that are common to women but ones that may not always be easy to talk about, such as incontinence (leaking), discomfort in the pelvic or genital area or pain during intercourse. Sometimes electromyography (monitoring of the electrical activity in the muscles) can be helpful to assess whether there is too much or not enough tone in the pelvic floor muscles. This information can be used to guide specific exercises to support the rehabilitation process.

Other conditions that are common to women, such as migraines, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia, are addressed in the program. Additionally, therapists treat women who are seeking prenatal or postnatal care. Our pelvic floor rehabilitation services also address problems that are not specific just to women such as bowel incontinence, IBS, constipation and rectal pain. Integrative Therapies utilizes a broad spectrum of physical therapy interventions and a multidisciplinary team approach to help you reach your wellness goals.

Men's Health and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Issues related to the prostate become more prevalent for men in midlife and beyond. In our Physical Therapy Department, we offer post-operative prostatectomy care and assistance for men who are dealing with urinary or bowel incontinence. Treatment for other forms of gastrointestinal and pelvic floor dysfunction is also available. Additionally, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine services have been found to be helpful for a number of men's issues and are offered at Integrative Therapies.

 

Main Services by Discipline:

Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

Physical therapy is an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders utilizing conservative measures (i.e., does not involve surgery). People may seek physical therapy services when experiencing pain or discomfort or when they are having difficulty engaging in everyday activities or reaching their performance goals. Individuals may also come to physical therapy for rehabilitation after an accident or injury. Additionally, patients may pursue PT and rehabilitation services to assist in recovery or support of optimal functioning after a stroke or other medical condition has been diagnosed. Our Physical Therapy Department offers a number of specialty programs, such as pelvic floor rehabilitation for individuals dealing with pelvic pain or incontinence.


Massage and Bodywork Therapy

There are many forms of massage and manual therapy or what is sometimes referred to as bodywork. The various hands-on therapies may target different tissues in the body or may be focused on achieving different objectives but, overall, massage and related techniques are widely recognized to have considerable health benefits. Massage is known to promote physical and mental relaxation as well as reduce muscular tension and pain. Bodywork therapies can also help to improve posture, mobility, circulation and quality of sleep. Some of the types of manual therapy utilized frequently at the clinic include Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy. Other forms of bodywork focus not only on relaxation and pain relief, but on movement re-education, such as the Trager Approach® and the Feldenkrais Method®.

Integrative Pain Medicine

Integrative Pain Medicine combines the best conventional medical treatments with quality evidenced based complementary healthcare.  The goal of our integrative pain medicine approach is to identify and correct the root physical, biochemical, psychological, social or spiritual causes of conditions. It involves the use of safe, natural and effective approaches that help healing of the whole person. At integrative Therapies, you have the option of incorporating regenerative medicine treatments to help achieve lasting results. These strategies utilize your body’s own growth factors to help repair underlying orthopedic conditions.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve health and overall well-being. It has been used for many thousands of years, particularly in the Orient, and has become more prominent in the West in recent decades. Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles at very precise acupuncture points. Sometimes heat or electrical stimulation is applied to the needles to augment the level of activation at these points. Acupuncture is used widely in the treatment of acute and chronic pain but is also applied to a broad spectrum of other health concerns. Most people report feeling relaxed both mentally and physically after their treatments.

Biofeedback

Biofeedback uses specialized electronic equipment to "feedback" information to the client about the level of muscle tension or other physical responses in the body. Combined with instruction in relaxation and other self-awareness skills, biofeedback can help a person to ease the tension and stress that may accompany or cause pain and other symptoms. Biofeedback is commonly used in the treatment of headaches, TMJ, fibromyalgia and other pain problems. It can also be used to assist in neuromuscular re-education after an injury or stroke or in the treatment of incontinence. Biofeedback training involves three major steps: 1) developing an awareness of body state, 2) learning voluntary control over these the states and 3) incorporating these new skills into everyday life.

Dynamic Surface Electromyographic (EMG) Assessment

Electromyography quite literally means a recording (graph) of the electrical activity of the muscle (myo). A dynamic surface EMG assessment involves computerized monitoring of the muscles at several different sites simultaneously during movement or functional activities. This is a safe and fairly simple procedure that does not use needles. Instead, sensors are placed on the skin overlying the muscle groups to be assessed. The information gathered can often help your therapist gain a better understanding of the patterns of neuromuscular functioning that may contribute to your pain problem and provide guidance for treatment planning and implementation. Findings from the EMG assessment may often be used to determine specific goals for biofeedback training.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback refers to a specific type of biofeedback which utilizes electroencephalography (EEG) or what is sometimes called brainwave training. When applying this therapeutic technique, the client is presented with real-time feedback of brainwave activity as measured by sensors on the scalp, typically in the form of sound and/or video displays. Some of the most common uses of neurofeedback include the treatment of stroke, headaches, ADD/ADHD, depression, cognitive impairment, insomnia, PTSD and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

QEEG Brain Mapping

QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalography) brain mapping is an assessment procedure that records the changes in electrical potentials in various parts of the brain. The EEG records electrical activity (brainwaves) from the scalp using digital technology. The multi-electrode recording of brainwave activity is converted into numbers (quantified) by a computer. The numbers are then statistically analyzed and are converted into a color map of brain functioning. The data that is collected is compared to an extensive normative database which can help your practitioner developed a treatment plan specific to your situation.

Mental Health Counseling and Stress Management

Mental health counseling is offered at Integrative Therapies as a separate service or as part of a multidisciplinary program. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression or other psychological symptoms due to an illness or other issue, counseling may be of benefit. Our professional counselor can also be of assistance to individuals who are dealing with grief, relationship issues, self-esteem problems or general concerns about stress and how to manage it. Mind-body services such as biofeedback, EMDR® and EFT are also available and can be incorporated into a counseling or stress management program.

Bioenergetics and BodyTalk

Our bodies are made up of energy and information systems that communicate with each other to sustain life and maintain homeostasis (balance of body functions). When there is inadequate energy or communication in and between systems, health can be compromised. Bioenergetic therapies work with a broad spectrum of energy and information concepts to support wellness. The BodyTalk system is based on the philosophy that our body has the innate wisdom to know what is wrong with itself and is capable of healing itself. BodyTalk is designed to harmonize the energy networks and optimize the overall balance of the body. Computerized systems are also available to assess the 'body-field 'and more subtle aspects of the human energy systems.

Nutritional Services

Nutritional counseling at Integrative Therapies is offered from a holistic perspective, taking into account not only your diet, lifestyle and environment, but your unique biology as well. We offer a variety of nutritional assessments, such as food sensitivity testing and functional metabolic profiles. This information, along with guidance from your nutritional professional, can help you take the necessary steps to reach your wellness goals. Making healthier diet and lifestyle choices may go a long way toward reaching these goals. However, your practitioner may make supplement recommendations as well, when needed.

Yoga

Yoga offers a way to bring balance to a person's whole being: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Some may think of yoga as a physical exercise that is executed with a profound inwardly directed awareness or focus. Other characteristics that distinguish yoga from traditional exercise, is that it is typically performed at a slower pace with an emphasis on quality, rather than quantity of movement. Yoga tends to be process focused rather than goal oriented and it is performed in a noncompetitive spirit. Additionally, yoga emphasizes listening to your body and learning to pay attention to your feelings.

Scientific studies reveal that practicing yoga not only increases flexibility, strength and stamina but that it helps reduce stress and tension as well. From a medical standpoint there are studies that show that yoga can reduce blood pressure, improve blood glucose in people with diabetes and that it can improve mood. Other scientific investigations have found that yoga can lead to a reduction in the pain and discomfort associated with chemotherapy for cancer patients and that it helps reduce pain from back problems.

At Integrative Therapies, you can enjoy yoga in a group setting or explore its benefits in one-on-one sessions. For those who are attending the center for rehabilitation purposes, individual yoga may be included as part of the therapeutic exercise program or yoga classes may be recommended to help maintain therapeutic gains after the treatment program has been completed. Please see our calendar for the dates and times of yoga classes.

Wellness Classes

In addition to yoga, Integrative Therapies offers a number of other wellness classes. Some are designed to provide useful self-care information and skill building opportunities to guide you on your path to wellness. Our movement classes are fun, playful and relaxing but also provide you with strategies that you can utilize long after you finish your classes or therapy at the center. For more detailed information, please see our section on Yoga and Wellness Classes.
