Vertigo in The Villages

Vertigo in the Villages

Have you ever had vertigo while in The Villages? A patient came in last week with symptoms and warning signs that kept getting worse. It started with a headache which led to vertigo symptoms. This led to numbness down the right arm and loss of vision. 

She began to panic and thought she was having a stroke. The doctor suspected a brain tumor or a stroke. MRI was negative for any findings. The neurologist began treating the symptoms with medication, but the patient became worse. The patient thought she was going to just have to deal with these problems since nobody knew what was going on.

She came into Legacy Clinic desperate for answers. Upon examination, the doctors found the top cervical vertebra that protects the brainstem and controls all automatic reflexes to be misaligned. This vertebra was carefully aligned to allow the nerve pressure to be released. Over the next 12 hours the patient’s vertigo symptoms, vision problems, and neurological began to diminish.

When there is pressure on one of your spinal nerves your body will give off symptoms based on the location.

Medical Massage Vs Spa Massage

Have you heard of medical massage? Have you wondered what the difference is between the two types? Maybe you thought they were the same thing, so we wanted to help clarify.

Medical massage differs from a normal spa massage in that it works towards a specific outcome. During a spa massage, most patients enjoy a Swedish massage that focus on relaxation. Medical massage may incorporate techniques like trigger point therapy or myofascial release in order to aid muscle health recovery.

Knowing what your desired outcome is will help you decide what type of massage you want. Legacy Clinic is here to help with either.

Many clinics also offer 60 minute massages but you probably know by now that you’re more likely to only get 45 minutes at best. Why settle for only 75% of what you paid for? You wouldn’t accept that in any other situation. Imagine buying a car that didn’t come with an engine. Let our therapists work with you and experience what that extra time can mean. Wouldn’t you like to be 25% more relaxed?

Acupuncture For Improved Health

Acupuncture For Improved Health

Acupuncture for improved health does so much for us that most don’t even realize. Most people have come to know acupuncture for releasing stiff muscles. While it definitely does this, it is a recognized technique for many other pains and disorders.

Do you suffer from stress? If you’re like most people on this planet, you probably do on some days. Acupuncture is a great way to reduce stress levels in our bodies. By reducing these levels, we gain quite a bit. Stress can wreak havoc on our entire system. It can lead to anxiety, weight gain, and may even cause us to seek comfort in other bad habits like smoking. Imagine what it would be like to shed that stress from your system.

acupuncture in the villages

Acupuncture has been utilized for thousands of years. That means it has been used for longer than most traditional medicine practices. That’s a pretty good record. Still, many are hesitant to try it. Perhaps that’s because they simply don’t understand it. That’s why we want to inform you on what acupuncture is and some of the benefits you might see from it.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting extremely small needles into certain areas of the body. These needles are much small than a sewing needle and most patients barely feel them, if at all. The needles are inserted into specific areas depending on what effect you are looking for.

What does it help with?

Acupuncture for improved health covers a lot of areas. One way that we mentioned already is to reduce stress hormones in the body. Other benefits include; pain relief, muscle relaxation, reduction of headaches or migraines, reduced eye strain, improved immune system and so much more.

Laser Therapy In The Villages

Legacy Clinic now offers laser therapy in The Villages!

Laser therapy in The Villages is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many when treating painful, debilitating
conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality.

Benefits of laser therapy

  • Effective for difficult conditions
  • Alternative to surgery
  • Fast treatment times (typically 5-10 minutes)
  • Easy, non-invasive treatment
  • Scientifically proven treatment
  • An adjunct to prescription drugs
  • Pre and Post-surgery treatment to speed recovery time

Basics of laser therapy

Effective laser therapy administration is a direct function of the power of the laser light and dose delivered. Administering the optimal treatment dose to patients produces consistent positive outcomes. Class V therapy lasers provide a deeper depth of tissue penetration and ultimately provide a dose that results in positive reproducible outcomes. Higher wattage also results in
faster treatment times and provides results unachievable with low wattage lasers. These lasers provide a level of versatility unrivaled by other Class I, II, III and IV lasers due to their ability to treat both superficial and deep tissue conditions. Legacy Clinic offers a class V 60 watt laser.

What can you expect from laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery. Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being
treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

Titleist Golf Chiropractor

Dr. Chris Kessler is a Titleist Performance Institute certified doctor and The Villages Golf Team’s go to chiropractor.

Dr Chris has been helping patients in the Villages area for years and many of them have come to him for help improving their game. Through a variety of techniques, Dr. Chris has been able to help golfers relieve pain, correct posture and improve their swings. Aside from being certified through Titleist, he is also an avid golfer.

Titleist Cerified

Some patients need work on their foundations. Not their golf foundations, but their body’s foundations. Our feet are more important than most people realize and the tiniest shifts can make a world of difference. Dr. Chris is certified through the Foot Levelers company to get you custom fit orthotics which can restore balance to your whole frame. These orthotics are different than the ones you find in stores because they are specific to your feet. They also take in to account all 3 arches in your feet to ensure the best support.

Another way Dr. Chris is able to help his patients is through chiropractic care. By adjusting and maintaining a healthy spine, patients often have less pain in general and can swing through more thoroughly. The pain relief alone is worth coming in, but imagine being able to fully swing the club where you couldn’t before. How many yards would that add to your drive?

In addition, Dr. Chris teaches his patients proper posture and swing techniques to keep them enjoying the game they love. Swinging the club without proper posture may not hurt the first time, but repetitive stress on the spine and other joints can lead to very painful degeneration.

If you want to improve your game, come and see the Titleist Golf Chiropractor in The Villages. Call Legacy Clinic today to schedule an appointment and see what Dr. Chris can do for you.

Decompression For The Spine in The Villages

Looking for decompression for the spine in The Villages?

Many people are unfamiliar with what exactly decompression for the spine in The Villages is. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression uses a specialized table that gently pulls the two vertebrae on either side of the affected disc. This allows bulging material to be drawn from the nerve and back into the disc, allowing it to heal naturally over time. Advanced technology creates a gentle, pain-free treatment that avoids the muscle spasm or guarding reflex that is commonly triggered with traditional rudimentary traction or inversion devices.

Spinal decompression

Is decompression painful?

Most patients find spinal decompression to be very relaxing and it’s not uncommon to fall asleep during the procedure. The gentle pulling and releasing motion can be very soothing and having the pressure relieved from your nerves can put you into a very relaxed state. Although results can vary, many of our patients report a reduction in pain after the first few sessions. Typically, there is a significant improvement by the second or third week of treatment.

Is decompression effective?

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a breakthrough, FDA cleared procedure that takes the pressure off bulging, herniated, or degenerative discs, allowing them to rehydrate and heal. This often relieves pinching on the nerves and reduces pain. The best part is that decompression helps to heal the injured areas, rather than just managing (or masking) the pain.
The treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and drug-free. There are no needles or anesthesia and it can be completed in just a few weeks. It is considered a viable and reliable alternative to surgery in many cases. Thousands of patients are treated every day using this procedure.

What is it good for?

Bulging or herniated discs may begin to pinch the delicate spinal nerves, causing sciatica, stenosis, or radiculopathy. This can result in debilitating back or neck pain, as well as numbness, or weakness. Many desperate patients turn to prescription pain pills, invasive spinal injections, and even back or neck surgery, trying to find relief.
“In many cases, those traditional treatments fail because they do not address the cause of the problem, and instead focus on covering up the pain,” states Dr. Theeck. “This can leave patients frustrated and without hope, as they face the possibility of endless medications, injections, and surgeries.”

The Flu Shot And The Natural Immune System

Flu Season Is Almost Here!

Now is the time to protect yourself as best as possible. Our bodies have a wonderful sytem to protect us from infections like the flu or colds and it generally works well. There are times when we could all use a little help though, which is why Legacy Clinic is offering Engystol. Unlike the flu shot, Engystol contains only natural ingredients and has no known side effects, contraindications or negative interactions.

The flu shot contains multiple potentially harmful ingredients such as mercury, Thimerosal (preservative), formaldehyde and many more. In fact, studies have shown that a flu shot can contain over 50,000 parts per billion of mercury. If you have nothing to relate that to, just take a look at this chart.

This is a lot of risk to inject yourself with all these chemicals and it may not even protect you from what it was designed for.

Engystol is great for strengthening your immune system and is safe for all patients. It can also be used in conjunction with other medicines as it has no known interactions. Other benefits include; shortened recovery times, protection against subsequent infections, suitable for long term treatment, and scientifically proven efficacy and safety.

Contact Legacy Clinic today to get more information on Engystol and its wonderful, safe benefits.
