Prolozone in the villages

The bones or ligaments in the knees are prone to causing pain. Walking, running, twisting, and falling put a lot of strain on the knees, which are hinged joints that endure a lot of abuse. The hinged joint between the femur and the tibia might deteriorate over time, or joints can wear away. The joint is held together by ligaments that protect it against anterior, lateral, posterior, and rotational motions. Overuse of these movements or injury with movement can cause damage to the knee ligaments, resulting in severe pain. Prolozone for knee pain uses oxygen to promote healing. Prolozone has very little to no pain and people may be pain-free faster.

Ozone Joint Therapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, regenerative therapy that is used to treat a variety of joint pain and injuries. Because of its nature, ozone can function in tandem with the body, supplying nutrients and oxygen to a specific location or joint. Ozone joint therapy consists of two phases. The first involves injecting a solution of liquid vitamins, minerals, and homeopathic into the afflicted region (i.e. vertebra, tendon, muscle, ligament, connective tissue & joint space, etc.). This helps to minimize edema and improve circulation by reducing inflammation. Finally, oxygen in the form of ozone is introduced to the region. A medical-grade longevity ozone generator produces a specific concentration based on the situation. Over the next few days, the ozone gas will work by oxidizing the injected site, increasing red blood cell production, and improving the intake of oxygen, This will cause an increase in cellular and healing activity at the injected site, resulting in pain relief.

What is Acupuncture?

By placing sterile needles at specific nerve points in the body (acupuncture points), licensed acupuncturists can stimulate the body’s healing capabilities to relieve pain, nausea, and a variety of other health symptoms. Many doctors believe that acupuncture affects the body’s hormonal and neurological systems and stimulates the release of beta-endorphins, which cause happiness and even euphoria.

Acupuncture has its roots in China, but the modern-day practice and results certainly fall into the realm of Western medical science. The ancient Chinese believed that the flow of qi (pronounced chi) in the body could be influenced at specific points, giving rise to the acupressure points we know today. These points have been identified as nerves, or nerve clusters, that can be stimulated to affect the body on a biological level.

Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is scientifically/clinically proven to work to relieve pain, nausea, and even depression. The National Institutes of Health, run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, refers to acupuncture as a treatment for specific pain conditions and acknowledges that ongoing research seeks to reveal what other symptoms acupuncture is effective at treating.
Acupuncture is typically recommended for people suffering from chronic pain, which would usually require the person to take traditional pain medication that may become addictive. The process can ease chronic pain naturally and reduce or eliminate the amount of pain medication the chronically ill person is taking. Acupuncture is not addictive and can be a valuable option enabling those with chronic pain conditions to manage that pain.
Acupuncture is an essential option for those dealing with pain and other uncomfortable symptoms from a variety of sources. It can even promote healing and growth in your nervous system and release positive hormones like endorphins to make you feel emotionally better. If you’re looking for a non-addictive, traditional alternative to other treatments or medications, acupuncture is an excellent option for you.
If you are looking for acupuncture or would like a consultation with an acupuncturist, please contact Legacy Clinic in The Villages. Legacy Clinic is located in the heart of The Villages, FL featuring Dr. Aaron Perry DOM.


3 Simple Things To Help You Lose Weight

Patients often ask….. “What are some simple things that I can do to start losing weight today?”

  1. Eat a variety of different foods. You should be continually changing up the types of protein, fruits, and vegetables that you eat on a daily basis. Eating the same thing every day (even if it’s healthy) will stunt your body’s ability to lose weight. I advise all of our patients to buy small amounts of different types of fruits, proteins, and vegetables in order to help boost their body’s metabolism.
  2. Drink more water. The average patient who comes into our office looking to lose weight is extremely dehydrated. Women should be 45-60% water and men should be 50-65% water. You need to make sure that is drinking at least half of your body weight in ounces of water every day. So if you are 200 pounds you need to make sure you drink at least 100 ounces of water every day.
  3. Start walking in the morning to help burn fat. Taking a 20-30 minute walk (not a run) first thing in the morning is an amazing way to put your body into a fat-burning zone. The reason we want you to walk and not run or jog is when you walk you stimulate your body’s heart rate to get up into what is called the fat-burning zone. Your body will stay in a fat-burning mode for many hours following your walk. When we want to lose weight what we really want to lose is fat and the best way to stimulate fat loss is to take a good walk in the morning at a pace where you can still have a casual conversation and are not huffing or puffing.

This Is How You Squat

Did you know a squat is an important functional movement because we all squat during daily activities like sitting, getting off the toilet, or bending to pick something up?  A properly executed squat is critical to your overall low back health because of its ability to strengthen the thighs, hips, glutes, and core.  It can improve your balance, flexibility, and help you maintain your independence. 

This Is How You Squat

Using a resistance band adds more loads to a regular squat and allows for greater muscle activation.  Depending on your fitness level, choose a band that provides challenging resistance, allowing you to maintain proper form without your knees turning inward. 

Jenny Sweat, Legacy Clinic’s Corrective Trainer, recommends the following steps to correctly perform a squat movement using a resistance band:


1) Stand with your feet slightly more than hip-width apart with a band just above your knees.  Your toes are pointed forward or slightly outward with your hands on your hips or in front of you.

2) Grip the floor with your toes and press your heels into the floor.  This helps to engage your glutes/buttocks more and maintain better balance. 

3) Slowly push your hips back into a sitting position while bending your knees, keeping your knees behind your toes.  You can lower yourself until your knees are at a 45 to 90-degree angle. 

3) Breathe in and hold the position for 2-3 seconds, then breathe out and slowly lift back up into the starting position, pushing through your toes and heels.  Slowly stand up while pulling your belly button in towards your spine and focusing on squeezing your glutes/buttocks. 

Perform 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps every other day.

Jenny Sweat is a Corrective Trainer at Legacy Clinic. She has over 30 years of experience and holds a master’s degree in exercise science. Her focus is to provide specific training and exercises to help your body function better.

Treat Disc Herniations With Spinal Decompression

There are 24 moveable vertebras in the spine with 23 vertebral disc that are between the vertebras. The disc have a couple of functions that consist mostly of providing as a shock absorber and flexibility. It also keeps the space open where the spinal nerves exit that are between each vertebra. These nerves can travel to each cell, muscle, and organ in the body. 

The spinal discs are under a lot of load each day from sitting, standing, bending, twisting, and lifting. This extra force and pressure on the disc cause the intervertebral discs to degenerate, thin, narrow, bulge, herniate, or protrude. When the disc space is decreased, the canal where the nerves come out also narrows. This can but pressure on the nerves that exit the spine. One of the most common nerves that exit the low back is the sciatica nerve. The sciatica nerve is made up of nerve roots from L4-S3. Wear and tear on the lumbar spine can easily narrow the lumbar disc space abs put unbearable pressure on the nerves that make up the sciatica nerve.

Treatment options for Disc Herniation:
1. Spinal decompression to open the disc space 
2. Corrective training to restore the lumbar curves
3. Medical options consisting of pain management 


Acupuncture needles size? / Acupuncture in The Villages

The size of acupuncture needles usually used have a diameter of 0.2 mm, in other words they are tiny. The needles are about the same thickness as an eyebrow hair.

Acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate tissue and stimulation points. Most acupuncture points lie on the meridians; the points referred to as trigger points, can lie alongside the meridians. Acupuncture points are stimulated in acupuncture through various puncturing techniques to bring the body back into balance.

In traditional acupuncture, the needles are inserted into the skin or further into the tissue depending on the procedure and skin area. To stimulate the acupuncture point, the needles can be gently turned, lifted, lowered or even tapped. This form of treatment is possible with almost all types of needle.

The Importance Of Stimulating Your Adrenal Glands With Chiropractic!!

In honor of September being the birth month of Chiropractic, I wanted to take a moment and focus on one vertebra and that you should always have adjusted in order to stimulate your immune system.

Your ninth thoracic vertebrae (T9) are the most important vertebrae I can stimulate if a patient walks in my door with a decreased immune system or is feeling under the weather. Symptoms of a decreased immune system can include brain fog, craving sweets or salty snacks, having a decreased sex drive, depression, difficulty getting over an illness, fatigue for no reason, inability to get restful sleep, inability to think clearly, insomnia, low energy especially in the morning, muscle and bone loss, muscular weakness and poor memory. All of these symptoms listed can be the result of a decreased immune system. One way to boost the immune system neurologically is to directly stimulate the adrenal glands in the body. Adrenal glands help your body deal with stress. When adrenal glands are under chronic or excessive stress in the body they can fatigue which directly decreases the immune system. Adrenal fatigue is very common in society today and one of the most under diagnosed and under-treated clinical conditions. By getting a chiropractic adjustment on T9 we are able to directly stimulate the adrenal glands and improve immune system function in the body.

So if you are feeling tired, low on energy, and run down it is time to visit the Doctors of Legacy Clinic to get your ninth thoracic vertebrae adjusted in order to stimulate your adrenal glands and instantly boost your immune system
