Together they bring decades of clinical expertise to specialize in the non-operative treatment options related to spine, sports, joints, musculoskeletal, nerve and regenerative medicine.
Uprooting the Root Cause
Holistic treatment delivers lasting results. That is why we don’t just specialize in the clinical management of acute, subacute and chronic pain conditions, but also understand why the patient is suffering from pain. Each patient is managed using a multidisciplinary approach, with treatment targeted not only at the pain causing condition but also the related co-morbidities such as: sleep, mood, emotional disorders, lifestyle modifications, etc.
Advanced Treatment for Better Living
When you feel better, you perform better. That is why our advanced treatment options not only minimize pain, but more importantly improve physical, mental and emotional function. In order to get to the source of pain, we utilize advanced pain interventions to get you to feel pain-free as quickly as possible and improve your quality of life.
Early Recovery for a Fitter You
The quicker you get your initial pain treatment, the faster it can make all the difference. For us key for early recovery and favorable outcome is combining active and targeted physical rehabilitation therapies with advanced pain management interventions. Inadequately treated pain can lead to the development of chronic pain syndromes with debilitating multi-system & organ impairments. With a wide range of individualized pain management solutions, you can rest assured that we have the solution you are looking for, no matter what your condition is.
Natural remedies for Joint Pain
As demonstrated by in vitro research, many dietary supplements affect the production or activity of inflammatory mediators.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa), with the active ingredient curcumin, has been shown to inhibit numerous inflammatory mediators, such as nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-?B), prostaglandin-E2, leukotrienes, and nitric oxide. References are made in review articles to preliminary clinical trials (one used 1,200 mg of curcumin daily in patients with RA), but more definitive research is needed to establish dosages and efficacy. Higher doses recommended secondary to poor absorption of Curcumin in the stomach and GI system.
Boswellia (Boswellia serrata) often is combined with turmeric. In one crossover trial in 30 patients with knee OA, the boswelia group (333 mg three times daily) had less swelling, pain, and loss of joint movement compared with the control group (P<0.001), although no radiologic changes in the knee joint were observed.22 Another boswellia extract (5-Loxin, PL Thomas) was studied in 75 patients with knee OA. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either 100 or 250 mg of 5-Loxin or a placebo daily for 90 days. At the end of the study, both doses of 5-Loxin conferred clinically and statistically significant improvements in pain scores and physical function scores in OA patients (P<0.001-0.002), noted the investigators. Significant improvements in pain score and functional ability were recorded in the treatment group supplemented with 250 mg 5-Loxin as early as 7 days after the start of treatment.
We recommend Turmeric and Boswellia supplements for controlling pain and inflammation in joints to our patients. For more information please discuss with your NYSS provider.
