REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patients who receive a combination of acupuncture treatments and chiropractic neurology care may heal faster following a sports injury, reports multidisciplinary clinic California Neurohealth. Practitioners at the Redwood City clinic, who provide a combination of a specialized form of chiropractic care focused on the treatment of neurological disorders and Traditional Chinese Medicine, report a faster recovery process and better outcomes when patients receive care integrating both treatments. Chiropractic neurologist Dr. Christopher DeMartini DC, DACNB says this integrated approach to care is especially beneficial for patients with sports injuries, including combat injuries sustained by elite athletes.
“Chiropractic neurology is a specialized form of chiropractic care,” said Dr. DeMartini, DC, DACNB. “As a chiropractic neurologist, I focus most closely on functional neurology, which is the study of the inter-relationships of an individual's nervous systems within the context of their overall health. I use this knowledge to create personalized treatment programs that help patients heal faster after injury, including sports injuries.”
Depending on the type of injury, Dr. DeMartini says he may recommend treatments that include neuromuscular re-education exercises, cognitive training and the stimulation of the body’s different sensory systems, including balance (vestibular), auditory, and visual. Dr. DeMartini says this combination of care is effective for restoring a greater range of mobility, coordination and balance to the body following injury.
Dr. DeMartini works closely with Elham Khodabandeloo, L.Ac. Khodabandeloo says that the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, will encourage proper blood circulation and facilitate the release of chemical mediators that accelerate healing, reduce pain and resolve inflammation.
“As an acupuncturist, I work closely with our chiropractic neurologist to synergize the cutting edge techniques of chiropractic neurology and the time-tested methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture and herbs into a highly effective form of therapy,” said Khodabandeloo. “Without effective treatment, sprains, strains and other common sports injuries can lead to long-term, chronic pain. By enhancing blood circulation, acupuncture treatments help to minimize internal inflammation and swelling, while also reducing pain.”
Dr. DeMartini and licensed acupuncturist Khodabandeloo both recommend preventive care programs for athletes.
“While it is never possible to prevent every injury, whenever possible, our goal is to reduce injury risk,” said Dr. DeMartini. “One way we do this is with our preventive care programs that are designed to heighten physical strength, skill and mental focus.”
