PRP

Obtained from drawing your own blood and spinning it in a machine called a centrifuge. This process causes the red blood cells to drop to the bottom of the test tube, leaving the plasma rich platelets at the top. These plasma rich platelets release growth factors and cytokines which are needed by the body to help regenerate tissue and promote healing and repair.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are many types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities). People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons; for example, to reduce stress and anxiety, to relax muscles, to rehabilitate injuries, to reduce pain and to promote overall health and wellness.

Massage therapy has been growing in popularity among chiropractors. Many chiropractors have their “in-house” massage therapist to work alongside. The benefits of working together on musculoskeletal issues not only quickens the treatment time but also has longer lasting effects. While chiropractors focus more on the musculoskeletal issues, massage therapists can assist with soft tissue and muscle issues.

IV Therapy  Long Beach, CA

Class IV infrared Therapy

At Great Life Medical, we are pleased to offer IV therapies to our patients. We offer a wide range of treatments, from simple hydration to more customized therapies, including unique combinations of vitamins and minerals. We tailor each IV therapy session to the individual, depending on their needs and existing conditions.

The primary benefit of IV therapy is that it delivers the needed products directly to the bloodstream. Rather than waiting for nutrients to be absorbed through the digestive system, our patients can quickly receive them where the body will actually utilize them. Most therapies take between 15 and 30 minutes to administer, and we even have some patients come in on their lunch breaks!

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.

Spinal decompression is safe for most patients. It is a great alternative for drugs and surgery. During your consultation, we will do a complete examination to rule out any conditions that might cause a problem. Some contraindications are patients with advanced osteoporosis, pregnancy, obesity and extensive nerve damage. This will be discussed in further detail during your first visit.

If you have been plagued with chronic back or neck pain, you know how disrupting it can be to your everyday life. Standing up straight for long periods can hurt, getting comfortable at night can take forever, and simple things like unloading groceries can become extremely painful. Millions of Americans live with chronic back pain. If you have searched for any method to relieve your back pain, it is time to consider trying Spinal Decompression. You don’t have to live this way. Please call our office today (562) 498-4455.
