Medical Services Offered at Active Integrated Medical Center
At the core of regenerative medicine is growth factors, cytokines, proteins and mesenchymal stem cells. Our regenerative medicine products focus on using cells to help your body heal from within. With mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), your body may heal itself from the inside, using the cells to counteract inflammation that perpetuates tissue damage. These cells (MSCs) are a key component of regenerative medicine and our doctors and patients both love the results.
Large Joint Injections
We also do large joint injections, including the knee, hip, feet and ankles, shoulder, and wrist. Our large joint injections are done under ultrasound guidance. The ultrasound is a safe and effective way to ensure patient safety as well as make sure that the injection is done in its proper place. It improves the effectiveness of the injection by insuring that the needle and fluid are going exactly where the practitioner wants. Ultrasound equipment is both non-invasive and safe.
Trigger Point Injections
(TPI) are a simple procedure widely performed to relieve myofascial pain. It involves injections into trigger points, or knots that form when muscles do not relax. TPI is used to treat a wide variety of pain syndromes and other painful conditions. A common application for TPI is treatment of myofascial pain syndrome, a chronic musculoskeletal pain condition in which painful trigger points develop within muscle and fascia. Another pain syndrome commonly treated with TPIs is fibromyalgia, a chronic condition involving widespread pain, fatigue, sleep abnormalities, and often distress. These trigger point injections are done to promote healing in the dysfunctional muscle. They take a few minutes and are very effective in the rehabilitation process.
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems- oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. You don’t have to have a disease to benefit from functional medicine.

A health care specialty focused on the assessment, quantification, and rehabilitation of the human nervous system, utilizing sensory, motor and cognitive based therapies, to promote neuroplasticity, integrity and functional optimization. Functional Neurologists take an alternative approach to patient care, by assessing and treating the patient rather than the diagnosis. Patients often have unreached health goals or have not responded to traditional approaches and have conditions such as Brain Injuries, Vestibular Disorders, Chronic Pain Syndromes, Migraines, Neuropathies, Developmental Challenges, Movement Disorders, Degenerative Disorders, or Unknown Conditions.
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. This procedure is called nonsurgical decompression therapy (as opposed to surgical spinal decompression, such as laminectomy and microdiscectomy). Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals for many years. Both traction and decompression therapy are applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
