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.
Trigger Point Injections
Here at Great Life Medical, we are proud to offer trigger point injections for patients struggling with fibromyalgia, tension headaches, myofascial pain, and muscle pain in the arms, legs, lower back and neck.
During your appointment, we will locate the area where you are experiencing pain and inject small amounts of anesthetic and steroid to help alleviate your symptoms.
This procedure is safe and the risk of possible complications is very low. You may experience soreness or numbness at the injection site for a temporary period of time. While you should avoid strenuous activity for a few days, you should be able to actively use your muscles immediately following treatment.

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!
Functional Rehabilitation/Corrective Exercises
If you’ve lost your ability to function certain muscles due to injury, illness, or surgery our staff at Great Life Medical can help through physical medicine. Our physical medicine and rehabilitation services aim to improve and restore your functionality, mobility, and quality of life.
Whether you are struggling with chronic pain, recovering from surgery, illness, or an injury we are here to assist you in your journey to a full and successful recovery. For more information on physical medicine and how it can help you or to schedule a consultation, contact our office today at (562) 498-4455.
Spinal adjustments using a non-force technique with an Activator or a manual thrust to specific parts of your spine. The overall goal is to improve spinal biomechanics and provide diminished nervous system interference to decrease pain and improve function.
Cold Laser Therapy
Involves the application of low-power coherent light to injuries to increase the speed, quality and strength of tissue repair. The lasers stimulate healing, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.request an appointment
Using tape to facilitate proper healing of muscles and joints by increasing circulation, decreasing pain, improving proprioception and changing brain patterns to injured areas.
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.
Soft tissue therapy used since the 19th century. Cupping encourages healing by creating facial glide to increase fluid movement (decrease edema) and increase nutrient-rich blood supply to the injured area.request an appointment
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. Please call our office today (562) 498-4455.
Weight Loss and Nutritional Counseling
A treatment plan that utilizes a type of all natural human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to facilitate weight loss and long-lasting lifestyle changes.
