When you do a job for 15 years, you pick up on trends. When people are injured, they are not themselves. They could be out of work. They could be sidelined from training or exercising. They are no doubt in pain or limited somehow. After years of treating patients, the rhythms and the "feel" of how certain injuries recover are known. Historically, the question "is there anything I can eat or a certain diet that you recommend to help me get through this faster?" was answered with “NO”. Today, we know that is not the case.
Your food intake sets up your blood chemistry. All of our body "systems" are governed by chemistry. Our systems are respiratory (lungs), cardiovascular (heart), nervous (brain, spine, and nerves), digestive (mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines), etc. There is a tube that connects all of those systems, with a river of chemicals flowing to find a destination and perform a job. The biggest exchange of chemicals is at your belly or the digestive system. Have you heard the saying "food is more powerful than medicine.' This is why. Medicine offers one chemical and one job. Since there are multiple uses for "nutrients" or natural chemicals, then they have the versatility to do more than one job.
The chemistry of your gut, your blood, and your fitness affect your healing. Are you stress tested? If you are not asking your body to adapt to stress then your body will not be able to handle stress. Nutrition lays the groundwork for blood chemistry and can make or break the inflammatory response. Healing times are related to the general health of the person. Your blood chemistry, your inflammatory response, and your physical fitness impact healing times.
At MVPT we treat each patient as an individual. There are no cookie cutter programs to our treatment of musculoskeletal problems. We do not use electricity, ultrasound, massage, needles, ice, heat, or any silly gadgets. There is no clinical evidence to support these treatments. Manual therapy to address joint restriction if such a restriction exists, progressive loaded exercises, and education are the vehicles for healing. We do not accept insurance for the patients benefit. Thats right for YOUR benefit. Our average length of stay is 3-4 visits. By not accepting insurance the clinic is not forced to see 30 patients a day. We can slow down, offer one on one care, and hand deliver a personalized treatment plan that doesn’t end when your health insurance company decides to end it. You will receive homework to allow you full independence. Not just rehabilitation but performance as well. We specialize in active people. If you come in injured we can get you healthy, then build you up to your goal. What do you dream about doing that you believe you cannot do? We can help you build that dream.
