The Best Weight Loss Program

weight loss

Legacy Clinic is proud to offer an incredible doctor supervised weight loss program which helps patients to lose an average of 30-35 pounds in less than 12 weeks.  While on the program you will eat food from all-natural food groups and will not be required to eat or purchase any pre-packaged or frozen meals.

Our weight loss program does not use any hormones or HCG shots. The program will provide you with an all-natural appetite suppressant and helps the body to maintain a safe state of ketosis in order to help the body burn fat for energy as it is designed to do. 

This program will help you to shed weight, reset your metabolism and regulate your body in losing stored abnormal fats. The abnormal fat in your body does not serve any useful purpose and our program specifically targets the loss of abnormal fat in your body. This is the fat that we all look at and poke at in the mirror as it forms as an excess layer in the belly, hips, thighs and buttocks.

When a patient says they want to lose weight what they really mean is that they want to lose unwanted and abnormal fat. 

One of our patients recently said… “I have tried and ultimately failed to lose weight on many different diets. I was amazed at how easy it was to lose weight on this diet, my energy levels soared through the roof and I lost incredible amounts of weight and inches through my entire body. I was also extremely impressed how the diet undoubtedly reset my metabolism. Thank you Legacy Clinic for making me feel great and look great again!”

Spinal Decompression Or Spinal Surgery?

If you’ve been thinking about having spinal surgery, there is a very important question to ask yourself… would you rather have spinal decompression or spinal surgery?

Decompression therapy is a helpful tool for those who suffer from back pain. It is a non-invasive, all natural alternative to back surgery and harmful anesthetic treatments.

One form of spinal decompression therapy is the Kennedy Decompression Table. This unique method is designed to relieve pain caused by spinal disc injuries.

For the procedure, the patient lies down either on their back or their stomach. A belt is fastened arounbd the hips and this belt is gently pulled on by a machine at the end of the table. This relieves pressure from the spine and allows the discs between to eventually heal themselves.

Spinal decompression or spinal surgery

Spinal decompression could save you from a very costly and potentially dangerous spinal surgery procedure. Before you go under the knife, ask yourself do I want spinal decompression or spinal surgery?

Legacy Clinic has been helping patients get relief for many years and they offer a variety of therapies to help patients with all types of disorders. Let their experience guide you as you make one of the most important decisions you’re likely to make about your own health.

Most patients find their back pain is reduced dramatically after spinal decompression procedures. One study shows a marked association between disc height and pain relief. The study also reported an increased spinal disc height of at least 1mm and pain reduction of 74 percent in patients who participated in therapy consistently.

Acupuncture For Seniors

Acupuncture For Seniors. Some seniors find relief from aches and pains in the low back and joints (especially arthritis). Acupuncture can help relieve these pains and get them back to their normal routines. Acupuncture can also bring relief from headaches and general malaise.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has been practiced for centuries and has helped people around the world. By inserting extremely small needles into specific areas of the body, the acupuncturist can relieve pain and help relieve symptoms of anxiety as well.

This therapy is non-invasive and completely natural. After the doctor discusses the patient’s needs, he or she will determine where therapy is needed and for how long.

Is It Painful?

Most people don’t like the idea of needles and the thought of having several sticks is even less comforting. Many assume that acupuncture will hurt just because it uses needles. Often times, patients will only feel a little pressure and then relaxation. The needles used in acupuncture are smaller than the width of a strand of hair.

Functional Training For Seniors

Functional training is one of those industry buzzwords, but it’s a philosophy rooted in common sense. This kind of training mimics movements in your day-to-day life, which means you spend time and effort helping your body prepare itself for common physical tasks – everything from rising to a standing position, reaching down to pick something up, even putting on a sweater. For seniors citizens, functional training is well worth the time. Here’s why.

Why do seniors benefit from functional training?

Actually, anyone can benefit from this kind of workout. But seniors in particular benefit simply because as we age, things we took for granted can become more challenging. To ensure that you can continue safely reaching something on a high shelf and stepping up onto a raised surface as you age, functional training is a good way to go.

While many typical exercises performed in a gym involve some pushing or pulling motions, functional training takes movement a little further. Instead of isolating muscles on a single plane or range of motion, functional training means working several muscle groups at the same time. This kind of exercise is also important for building balance and coordination – two skills that can fade with aging.

Seniors who perform regular functional training exercises also benefit in other ways.

  • Improved endurance and muscle strength – This kind of training makes your daily life easier by improving both endurance and muscle strength. That means complete your regular activities are much easier.
  • Better muscle memory – By performing the same types of movements, your body becomes more responsive. This is an easy way to build both muscle memory and keep your mental focus sharp.
  • Enhanced flexibility and coordination – Because you’re working a group of muscles with a wide range of motion, you improve coordination while keeping the body flexible.
  • Low impact – Functional training is easy on the joints, unlike some high impact exercises. Performing these movements under the watchful eye of an experienced personal trainer, like those here at Framework Personal Training in Sparks, will also ensure that you’re doing them safely.


Medical Massage at Legacy Clinic

Medical massages are outcome based massages. This means that after an evaluation by the massage therapist to determine where and how you need therapy, specific treatments will be used to target specific areas.

Massage therapy has been in use for many centuries and it has been proven effective through multiple studies. Different from relaxation massages, medical massages can be tailored to your health needs and help you recover faster.

This type of therapeutic massage involves more focused work on your body’s soft tissues such as: muscles tendons and ligaments. These help move and support your body.

your physician, chiropractor or physical therapist might recommend that you get a medical massage to compliment other therapies you are already receiving.

A massage therapist can work on any number of medical issues that are either chronic or acute. These issues can include:

  • Repetitive stress from sitting or standing for long hours during the day
  • Migraines or cluster headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Low back pain
  • Tendonitis
  • Radiating pain
  • Frozen shoulder

What to expect?

Different people have different needs so there is no typical massage routine. Your massge therapist will tailor your massge to your specific needs.

The more information you provide, the better. Letting your therapist know what you need worked on or why your doctor referred you will be very helpful in targeting your individual needs.

The therapist may have soft lighting in the room and relaxing music playing similar to a relaxation massage. Instead of a whole body treatment though, a therapeutic massage tends to focus on your area of need for an extended period of time.

Now is the time

Legacy Clinic now offers evening and weekend hours for massage therapy. There really is no better time than now to get the help you deserve.

Acupuncture For Cancer

Acupuncture can be effective in treating the adverse reactions may have to cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation as well as in treating the disease itself. Chemotherapy can cause nausea and vomiting during treatment and sometimes leads to patients discontinuing the treatment due to their inability to deal with the side effects. Acupuncture has proven to be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting that many cancer patients experience and helps them continue their treatments. It can also be used to manage cancer-related pain and fatigue.

acupuncture for cancer

Research also suggests that acupuncture can stimulate the production of certain factors that fight cancer cells. Though much of this research is still in the testing phase, the results are promising.

In the United States, acupuncture is used to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions associated with cancer and the side effects of cancer treatments. A number of cancer centers in the U.S., including Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston are integrating acupuncture into cancer care.

There are a few conditions for which sound research has demonstrated acupuncture to be an effective and safe adjunct therapy for cancer care. Randomized clinical trials (RCT) have demonstrated that acupuncture is effective for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Research studies also suggest acupuncture may be helpful in managing cancer-related pain, chemotherapy-related neutropenia, cancer fatigue, and radiation-induced xerostomia.

Acupuncture, an ancient medical treatment originating in China, is gaining momentum and acceptance as a valid intervention in medical practice. In the past decade acupuncture and other integrative medicine programs have been established in many major medical centers in the United States.

If you or someone you know is undergoing cancer treatment, contact Legacy Clinic today to get more information or get scheduled for your first appointment.


Regenerative Treatments In The Villages

What is Prolozone Therapy? How Does It Work?

Prolozone therapy is a form of regenerative medicine where doctors use injections of ozone in liquid form along with other therapeutic elements to stimulate the body’s tissues to heal themselves.

How Prolozone Therapy Works

Prolozone therapy is a non-surgical option for patients dealing with tissue injuries, and strains. The serum used in this therapy is created using a combination of elements such as:

  • Liquid ozone 
  • Vitamins and minerals
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Homeopathic medicines
  • Anesthetic agents
  • Cells that stimulate tissue regeneration

Effects of Prolozone Therapy

When doctors introduce ozone into the affected area, it improves blood circulation. As a result, the treatment site receives a fresh flow of oxygen and nutrients.

Ozone also attracts healing cells like fibroblasts and chondrocytes so they set off a reaction of tissue regeneration using the flush of nutrients available to them. The additional vitamins and minerals in the serum also support the repair of tissues while lowering inflammation levels.

Conditions that Can Heal

You can get Prolozone therapy to supplement conventional medicine for various conditions such as:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Plantas Fasciitis
  • Arthritis in the joints
  • Back pain resulting from damaged vertebra or discs
  • Osteoarthritis in the spine, knee, or hips
  • Shoulder pain from rotator cuff injuries
  • Trauma from playing sports

Causes of Muscle Pains 

Ligaments and tendons are soft collagen-like tissues that support the structure of your body.

They connect bones with one another and also attach muscles to the bones. For example, ligaments keep the vertebra and discs in your spine stable so your back remains flexible. Because of their elastic texture, ligaments allow free movement so you can go about your regular activities. In case you’ve had an injury or surgical procedure, the supporting tissues could get damaged.

Excessive use of a particular joint or muscle like when you’re playing sports or working a labor-intensive job could also strain the ligaments. You start to sense pain because of the nerve endings present in the tissues reacting to the stress.
